20mm view of the Arcade & Attica

On a foray to western New York state in July 2009, I made this 20mm wide-angle image of the Arcade & Attica tourist train near Arcade, New York.

I was working with RVP-100 (Velvia 100, no ‘F’), exposed using a Canon EOS-3.

Velvia 100 had a red-bias that makes for a difficult image to scan in a high contrast situation, such as this view of the steam locomotive.

Working in Adobe Lightroom, I made a variety of changes to contrast and color balance to help compensate for the red-bias color slide.

Adjusted slide-first version.
Final adjustment.
