Project LV one – Day 324 – Visiting the past

20030810-Narborough - Commuter Train - Narborough

This is one of the most seminal images I have ever made.  It dates back to July 2003 and is one of the first ever digital images I created.  By that virtually everything in the image has been altered in post production.  I had just a obtained, I think bundled with the camera, a copy of Photoshop express and was having a field day trying out new techniques that I religiously devoured from the latest copy of Practical Photographer.

The camera was a wonderful 1 mega pixel, yes one, and I thought it was a wonderful machine, even if the battery life was so very shocking.  Yet under favourable circumstances the camera still made a reasonable stab at capturing an image.  The rest was down to the magic of the digital age and my skill/luck.   Funny how things change so quickly.
