Meet at Night

My wife and I had an opportunity to participate in a night photography session at the Steam Railroading Institute in Owasso MI a few years ago. I was able to use my Canon Digital rig to capture some images that I will probably never have the opportunity to again. This is the Southern Pacific Daylight Engine #4449 on the turntable and Pere Marquette Engine 1225 looking like they are going to pass in the night.

Reminiscent of the photography of O. Winston Link. The dramatic lighting and reflections are perfect, especially on the right side engine. Superb shot!

I am not sure I would have used the term "mysterious", but there is something in this semantic field about the feeling of the image. The 3D and the composition participate in this atmosphere as well. Nice picture.
