Taken at the Arizona Railway Museum in Chandler, AZ. Many thanks to the museum staff for their help and general friendliness.

Pushed saturation, contrast and shadows. Noise ninja & smart sharpen. Cloned out some distracting bird droppings, dead branches and pipes. Resize & final sharpen.

I realized after shooting and driving all the way home, that I had accidentally left my camera set at ISO400. Doh! Luckily, it didn't seem to hurt this frame.

I really like this image. It's too bad you couldn't have gotten directly over the coupling to remove the last bit of the train car. Could have called this one Yin/Yang. Well done!

Contrasting colors make a great "yin-yang" effect.

I like the "ying and yang" of this shot - complimentary colors - great!

Kind of an abstracty, yin-yang thing going on here. Interesting. Cool, I like it.

Neat almost abstract image. The color of the light coupling looks a little odd on my monitor...almost pink.

This documentary might have worked in black and white. As is, the blue cast in the stone is distracting. JMO of course. Good luck in the challenge.
