Simply can’t get enough of Nevada City so we headed back this morning. We were greeted with 5degree weather and great light. I headed right to the rail cars on the south side of the depot to play with lines. As you can see the sun was coming up nearly right over the tracks with the cloud cover slightly blocking it. It was a major blinkie so I decide to go HDR. I didn’t want the brightness take the eye there and leave it there. So I did five image, handheld HDR. I really like the lines of the cars but not the distance of the track from the cars, so I moved over.

Then from this angle, I like the track but not the cars. I though about merging the two elements from the two photo in Photoshop but then decided the photo just wasn’t worth it. The one aspect of the shoot I felt good about was deciding to shoot it with the 24f1.4AFS at f1.4. I really like the way the car fades off in the distance. That’s about the only think that does work for me. That and the cold, I loved that!
