Snow Train at Glen

Yesterday (Sunday February 21, 2021) a clear blue dome made for excellent winter photographic conditions.

Kris Sabbatino and I went out to picture Conway Scenic’s afternoon Snow Trains.

We caught the 3pm departure passing Glen, New Hampshire.

After exposing a few Provia 100F color slides of the train crossing the truss bridge over the Ellis River, I made this view with my FujiFilm XT1 as the westward train approached the grade crossing.

I’ve presented two versions. The first is the camera-JPG using the Fuji Veliva color profile. The second is a JPG made from the camera-RAW, which I first converted using Iridient X-Transformer to a DNG file, then working in Adobe Lightroom I made very slight adjustments to the highlights and shadows to maximize the detail in the image while retaining the color profile.

Notice the difference in the amount of highlight detail in the snow, particularly to the left of the train. Also notice the tint of the green paint on the front of locomotive 216.

Camera produced JPG using the Velvia Color profile.

RAW file converted for adjustment to a DNG file, then adjusted in Adobe Lightroom to maximize highlight detail and adjust color, while retaining the overall Velvia color profile.
