Another image from the Butte Mine series. When I visited, there were three old trains. These are two of them. I believe that they were used to transport the miners around… at least that would explain the old benches in them! 😛 These are directly under the gigantic headframe. I was processing this picture as I normally do. Adjusting contrast and colors when I stopped, took a step back, and reevaluated the image. I thought it would look a little better if I desaturated it a bit… including the colors. I like it. I think it fits the era a little better. What do you think?
Note: As is going to be the case in all future posts, I’ve included the before image as well. Please use the slider to change from before to after and let me know if you run into any problems.
Update: Happy Valentine’s Day – To my wife, Adrienne!
I want to give a little shout out to my wife, Adrienne. We’ve been married for just over 6 months. We have a 4 year old son, Aiden and another child on the way. We don’t know the sex yet… that’s in another 3 weeks. She is a beautiful, wonderful, and loving wife and I love her to the moon. Everyday, I am amazed at how good of a wife and mother she is. I’ve never met a better mother. Lately, I’ve been VERY busy diving into my new obsession: Photography. She has been very supportive of it. Posting a new image every day is definitely a challenge… especially when the image is usually HDR processed.
So, Adrienne, I just want to let you know that I love and appreciate you so much. Thank you for being you!
