ATSF 3751 at Los Angeles at National Train Day in May 2012

WordPress and Adobe could drive me to drinking…. :(

How I Did It

Photographic ArtI try to take at least two photographs each day and create Photographic Art images from them. Yesterday, due to WordPress and Adobe snafus which took up over eight hours, and for which none of the snafus have been resolved yet, I only got Photographic Art images from one file. However, it’s a photograph that I’ve been wanting to work on for 1½ years now. Here’s the photograph:

That’s the historic ATSF 3751 steam locomotive at Union Station in Los Angeles for National Train Day in May 2012. It’s the best picture I got because so many people were always gathered around it. It doesn’t help that in order to get the locomotive, the passenger car is in the picture at the left.

I knew that eventually my Photoshop skills would be such that I could remove the passenger car and the people. Yesterday, I succeeded, but I actually used a combination of that photograph and my second-best photograph of ATSF 3751:

When I finished my Photoshop work, I had this:

Then I went to town creating Photographic Art from my final Photoshop image. I actually created 19 Photographic Art images, and while I haven’t decided on my favorite—favorites go into my Photographic Art Catalog—this is in the running:
