    The light was leaving fast.. but just enough to get a few decent snaps. Here's one of my favorites. Apparently this is the largest steam train this side of the Mississippi River or something.. and there were lots of train fanatics about.

    Edited this to add to the 'old train' vibe.

    Whatcha think?

    I LOVE this! Great job!

    Lil station house looks like it's leaning right. Is it or is it distortion?

    Thanks for the compliments!

    Hmm.. good call, I think it's distortion (had the camera/lens angled up a bit..) - I was at 17mm for this, cropped a little off the bottom and sides, but not more than maybe 15%.

    If I decide to do anything with it I'll correct that little issue. I threw the textures on as a last minute thing, after resizing for the web and everything - something I've been wanting to experiment with.

    Looks very old-timey. Not sure if the texture is all that necessary....regardless,still a good shot reznap.

    +1 on the texture, for me. Still a good looking shot, and the other editing is fitting. Well done.

    Wonderful capture; I would lose the texture as well.
