Here are a couple more shots from my shoot at the railroad museum in Ogden, Utah.  You can see dark spots in some areas of the shot, that’s snow.  There are also areas of light and pattern, that’s snow/rain on the lens.  Pentax prides themselves on making water resistant cameras – I think I agree this is not the first and probably won’t be the last time I shot in a moist environment.

These are all five shot HDRs:

  • The first shot (all the engines) was shot at 21mm, ISO 200, f19, shutters from 1/6th second to 3 seconds.
  • The second (Union Station back side) is pretty much the same numbers and the water on the lens is clearly visible.
  • The third shot is like the first two except is was shot at 18mm.  This one was taken on the north end of the Union Station where there a restoration shop.  Again you can see the water on the lens.  Notice that part of the engine is missing and
  • Fourth a piece of the tender for this old steamer shot at 55mm.  If you look closely you can see this came from the Denver and Rio Grande RR.  The D&RG is the rail line that in just resently became part of the rail trail that connects Ogden to Salt Lake City.
