    I photo a lot of trains, mostly with Nikon digital, but also with 4x5. I prefer to shoot at night with flash.

    Spokane, Portland & Seattle # 700 is the only surviving example of the E-1 class 4-8-4 Northern type. It was delivered to the SP&S on June 21, 1938, pulling overnight passenger trains between Spokane and Vancouver, Washington, along the north shore of the Columbia River.

    Stephen, I like this one and hope you were a safe distance from those tracks. How did you meter with and use the stacked graduated ND filters? Did you use the Zone System or use the filters to tame the highlight values in the sky? Just curious on your method here.

    The train was stationary so all good there. I did use the zone system, but metered the brightest part of the sky and then the train and figured out how many stops different which was about something like 10. I then stacked my 3 stop and 5 stop grad nds with the second fading to zero above the grad nd behind it as I was trying to keep the brightest areas of clouds from blowing out. I then set the shutter to the area of the front of train. Which would be zone V. I should have metered on the darkest area at bottom of train and adjusted that to be zone III. But then I would run the risk of blowing out clouds. As it turns out I think that area did end up in zone III.

    The sky in Palouse hat weekend was bright as hell even with clouds. I have a digital image I stacked the grad nds and pulled it off. There was around 10 stops difference there as well.

    Hope this helps. And thank you for compliments.
