    Oh, goodie... lots of new additions to this wonderful thread.

    Great photography...I must admit I particularly loved the Volvo-train....

I also experimented a bit using zoom DURING the exposure. So I wondered if you actually used an active zoom during the exact exposure-time????????
    Actually, that's almost the same thing that I've done here. Exposure time time, and some manipulation in the computer. The afterwards manipulations are veeery minor, I have adjusted the colors a bit, and I have chosen not to apply any sharpening etc. afterwards.
    That zooming during exposuree is of course usable, but I think that it could be hard to combine together with moving stuff.

    I've attended courses and got a license to run huge boilers. Wonder if I could've run a steam train...? Think NOT.

    Also love your details and up close pictures much, and looking at the interior of that station is like being put back in time. Must have been strange to step inside.
    Thank you Svein.
    I'm been talking a bit with the people running the locomotives. They say that you need to know how the railroad stretch looks like to be able to run the boiler. There's a need to put in some extra coals before climbings etc. to keep up speed.

    Yes,it is a bit of an old oasis to walk around in the station surroundings, quite nice actually.

    When looking at those 'ågnbåtar' (steam boats), all I can think of is Saltkråkan
    (Strange how a tv series from my early childhood has burned itself into my memory).

    I think #22/1 is my favorite with the billowing steam.

    Anyway. What facinated me about this, was what I FELT when I saw it. It felt like having a visual NIGHTMARE....... The locomotive has a scary face. Just like a ghost is coming to take me. And the expression on this picture gives me associations to Edvard Munch`s painting "SKRIK" (scream)

    I just LOOOOVE this picture. Even if it is not very wise to look at it just before bed-time

    It's interesting to see how different people rank pictures. Actually my favs are #22:1 & 2.

    The #22:4 is just taken handheld with a quite long exposure time: 0,6 secs. The picture has a "zoom feeling" since the train is partly coming towards me. Compare that to #22:2 where the engine is passing me from left to right, which gives a more "panning feeling". Easiest way to practice this kind of photography is to photograph cars passing on a road.
    All new train pictures were taken in quite low light. Instead of struggling to get everything sharp, I took the easy way: just make it blurry!

    The evening is getting darker, and it gets harder to take proper photos.



    Blur!

    So here comes some new pictures from last saturday, some are a bit arty.


    "Gaivoron" is the newest engine. It's actually a diesel engine from Russia, used mostly those days when steam operation ain't possible.


    Personnel having fun.
