A few weeks ago I went on a trip to Durango. While I was there I rode the Durango-Silverton train. This train is one of the few left of working steam engines. To get this photo I went to the open car. Then while the train was going over the bridge and blowing out steam I got this shot. The settings I used were: ISO at 100, aperture at f/9, and a shutter speed of 1/125s.
When I edited this I took away some of the highlights and whites because it was very bright out that day. I also took away some shadows because the harsh sun was creating them on the trees. I added clarity, vibrance, and saturation to the whole photo. Then I used the adjustment brush to add back some of the whites and highlights into the steam and the some blacks into the train engine.
