During our recent visit to Lancaster, PA for Grenville's birthday celebration which included the Chocolate Express train ride, he toured the engine shop of the Strasburg Rail Road. Since I'm not as big a train enthusiast as Grenville, I opted out of that tour and explored around the train yard. It was fun experimenting with the effects setting on my Canon PowerShot SX120IS digital camera.
You might also have some of these or similar special effects settings available on your digital point-and shoot camera. All these photos were taken with the camera's special effects settings without using any software programs afterward.
The steam train stopped at the water tower for a fill-up. This large and very red tower was a hard to resist photo "op."
Various images of the steam engine.
The same passenger cars taken with various effects.
The fun image effects used for these photos included super vivid, color swap, monochrome, fish eye, and color accent. Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of which effect was used for each photo — it was a just a fun hour. The collages were put together using Picasa, Google's free photo editor — another way to have some photo fun.
