Trains Redux

Here we have a selection from the Colorado Railroad Museum that have bee tweaked a little bit more. Gone are simple saturation or contrast adjustments, these images are demonstrably different. The black and white conversion especially enhances the old trains, or in this case, an old snowplow.

I really like this one, I desaturated most of the other colors, leaving just enough blue to faintly color the sky and the logo.

This example of 1800's advertising was just too 'good' to pass up!

Another selective desaturation, I enjoy setting of the bright red of the caboose.

This one doesn't seem very modified, but I actually cropped it rather severely. Won't be able to print it at 18 x 20, but the composition is much better this way.
