Thanks to the Op for posting - great discussion here. I like the idea of adding some light.

You're welcome!

I even considered driving my 4 WD truck to a strategic position and leaving the lights on high beam ... but a bit toooo much snow for that. Maybe next year. That would help (maybe a stop) in lifting the shadows on the train (if I wanted that, artistically), but not the overexposure, of course.

I should also add that a friend made a video of the train using an iPhone. Not too great. Also overexposed.

I am also considering better locations, where I have some ambient security and/or street lighting. (see first para re using truck lights)

I just went to Lightroom and checked what I did. VERY LITTLE SHADOW LIFTING, moved the white point and the highlights ALL of the way to the left.

I'll check it out in RawDigger and post the results.


Here is the RawDigger rendering of the RAW file:

RawDigger ... with NO adjustments to the RAW file out of the camera.  Lots of light....  coloured lights are  blown on the train.  AE metering caused overexposure of the image by keeping the shutter open way too long, 3-4 stops, I would guess. Clipping due to ISO 800 didn't help.  The streaking of the red tower lights in the background that camera shake is the biggest culprit here.  (1/6 sec)
