Christmas ride by abuethe Christmas ride by abuethe
Train runs into the station - ready to take the passengers onboard.

50 favs: I removed the watermark in the lowres version
450 favs: I maxed out the fullview size to 1600 pixels, enjoy!

Thanks for the overwhelming response to this picture, as a bonus I share some information I usually keep for myself.

This picture was taken freehand, I used my Canon 5D Mark II and my 70-200 2.8 IS USM lens. It was then taken to Lightroom3, I used NIK HDR EFEX Pro (GREAT piece of software) to pull out some more detail in the shadows and to make the steam POP out of the image. Then I applied a bit of color look, thats it. This picture was finished in under five minutes in post production.

More information about the iron horse -> eisenbahn.geesthacht.de (german site)

Oh wow - my first Daily Deviation - Thx for the suggestion and the feature! <3

I simply am not able to respond to all the new comments on this picture, I really enjoyed the feedback and Im trying re-do this picture when snow is coming back to Germany.

YEAH, bach in 2011 or so :) But I know what you mean - tis is one of the things that reminds most people of childhood, even if they never saw a live steamtrain then (like me)..

Where I'm from we have, or should I say use to have the steam train come through once a yr. For a weekend and the people of the town would get to ride the train. so fun. Miss them days. The sad part is I never thought of taking pictures of the events then.

Yes - those untaken pictures hurt the most.. I had to wait three years for the weather to be decent, no snow - no sun.. One early morning I thought - now will be the time! And I got rewarded for getting up early on a sunday :)
