    Seeing Casey's B&W shots got me inspired to play around with the photo software...
    This was a color photo I took a couple of months back & wasn't real happy with...so I removed the color, brightened it, removed some of the contrast, to give it a faded look, & then attempted to add some sepia tones...IMHO, it looks better than the original...

    Charlie, your rendition reminds me of the old railfan photos that you see for sale on the swap tables at RR meets. Nicely done!

    All of this reminds me of when I was in photography classes and was the photography editor of my highschool yearbook 25 years ago. I loved to duplicate what you have done using chemicals, but software makes it so easy nowadays.

    However, your efforts are worthy of notice and valiant just the same!
