Normally my Photoshop skills are limited or I just don’t know what to do with an image to make it look different.
Well driving home today I was thinking about a shot I did in 2013 of the Puffing Billy steam train (runs daily in the Dandenong ranges here in Victoria). I have not done much with the image in the past, in fact I used to think it was not such a great shot because the steam was overexposed along with the sky.
However, today I was thinking can I convert it to a night time shot with a steam train emerging from the night. After two attempts I ended up with this. Certainly not perfect but better than the first attempt.
First the original,
and then the night time version in colour:
and finally the same in black and white.
