About the Image(s)

On the road from Portland Oregon to Idaho, there is this railroad tunnel with an unfinished tunnel on the left. Apparently they started the first tunnel in the wrong place and had to build the real one where it should have been. I was driving on the freeway (upper left) and stopped to take a picture of the train coming out of the tunnel. The other side of the mountain only has one track and tunnel. Later I thought it would be cool to make a ghost train coming out of the other (unfinished) tunnel and here's the photoshop result. I took the image with a pair of Sony cameras on a bar way before the W1 came out.

An interesting shot of the railway and the addition of the ghost train is an interesting twist. I think that the ghost train could have been in a lighter contrasting colour as it does unfortunately merge into the background somewhat   Posted: 01/09/2022 16:46:12

Good suggestion to have the ghost lighter. I'll try it. Actually the train was going into the tunnel and it had another engine at the end of the train. That made it look like it was coming out of the tunnel. I can't imagine what the engineers felt when they discovered this end of the tunnel was not in the right place.   Posted: 01/10/2022 13:00:40

Interesting creation of ghost train. The image is sharp with good lighting. There is nice depth too. The ghost train appears to be disintegrating from the middle portion!!!   Posted: 01/20/2022 11:55:53
