Tracking Progress

Taken Sunday night at Faversham railway station.

Post Processing:
HDR of 5 shots +/-2 eV in total using the Enhancer Default setting in Photomatix Pro 4.0;
adjustment of the distortion to get vertical lines;
faux tilt-shift applied, increase in saturation and tweaking of curves all in CS3; and
border applied via Mogrify in LR2.7.

Re: Tracking Progress

Looks like a model railway to me, interesting combination of effects and pp.

Re: Tracking Progress

Works very well. I think a Red Shed & ballast wagons might improve it.
I'm not convinced it is a model railway. I've never seen cracks in a model platform or all the survey stuff under the lip of the platform.
It keeps you guessing.

Re: Tracking Progress

It certainly isn't a model railway. I 'faked' a tilt-shift lens effect to make it look miniature.

Here is the middle exposure of the 5 I took, and when I tell you the exposure is 8 secs and then you see how sharp the workmen still are, you will see how little work was getting done!!

Re: Tracking Progress

A great effect - it took some looking to convince myself it was a real railway, well, as real as BR gets!

I didn't mean that it was a model - merely that the pp effects made it look quite like one.

As I said - interesting

Re: Tracking Progress

Nick, it could also be taken to mean it isn't run like a model railway... but I don't think SouthEastern are unique in their incompetence. Indeed when I get upset about the level of service I thank my lucky stars that I don't have to deal with First Connect which from my friend's accounts are far worse. Indeed I am amazed that they haven't had their licence revoked their performance is so bad.

It beggars belief that the train comapnies were in receipt of government subsidies given the fares we already pay. Post-January is going to be even worse when those subsidies are cut.

Re: Tracking Progress

It really is difficult to believe it's real, looks like a a hig hquality layout. Even though I KNOW it's not a model, I can't seem to believe it!

Tilt Shift is a great effect, can be achieved by 'free lensing' too (Simply take the lens off and angle it up a bit)

Re: Tracking Progress

Excellent photo and you have put the effect to great use, I too thought it was a model at first, even the fence on the left hand side looked plastic to me SO I was convinced

Freelensing should not be attempted by Canon and Nikon users for fear of getting dust spots on the sensor. Olympus users need not be concerned

I might try a spot of freelensing this weekend.
