sheesh....I only noticed when I got home that I had bumped my ISO up to 400. Why on earth I didn't check it I don't know. Still, for a 0.8 second exposure this has plenty of motion blur and to be honest I don't think I would have wanted a longer exposure.

Processing was a bit more extensive than usual. I of course ran the usual straightening (leveling) and levels. I selectively sharpened and adjusted the contrast, saturation, and clarity of the static elements in the scene. I did some dodging and burning on the people and a bit of the side of the train. I then added a vignette and exported to TIFF

Is PSP XI, I adjusted clarity again globally. Resized to 1600, two passes of plain ole sharpen, then resize to the final size and exported to JPG.

Phew...I almost wish this was minimal editing like the last run of this challenge topic!
