Steam on the move at Dún Laoghaire.

On Sunday morning (3 April 2016) I took a spin on the down Rosslare Europort train from Tara Street to Dún Laoghaire.

Honestly, conditions were inauspicious for photography, but I persevered none-the-less.

A low ceiling and light rain made for gloomy conditions.

I used a blend of techniques in an effort to make some visually gripping images despite the conditions.

Working with the Lee graduated neutral density filter to maintain detail in the sky, I made a series of pans at 1/60th of second using my FujiFilm X-T1 digital camera.

I practiced my technique on passing DART electric trains before the passage of Railway Preservation Society of Ireland’s Dublin Rivera led by locomotive 461.

All of the images required some contrast and saturation adjustment in post processing.
