Old Railcar in Galveston

I've been looking at this train for far to long.  I had driven by and seen it from the road for several years, but not up close.  After a couple of years of saying to myself, " I should go take some pictures of that."  I finally did.  Let me know what you think in the comment section below. I've put together a website with some galleries of my work.  Please take a look when you have a chance.  www.johnmillerphoto.com

Dark Skies

I'm sure to many of you, Silver Efex Pro is old news.  I've know about the software for a while now, but had been content with using the tools built into Lightroom.  I took the plunge recently and installed Silver Efex Pro to see what it could do for me, and what a world of difference.  It's almost like being in the darkroom again.  Being able to selectively work with parts of the images to control exposure and contrast is great.

The images below were processed with the new (to me) software; I believe they may be a bit over processed, but I don't really care.  Experimenting is part of the process of learning the new tool.  I'm sure over time I'll dial it back again.
