Where is this magnificent locomotive? It would make a fantastic light painting shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took it at an old railroad depot and station in the town I'm from called Andalusia, Alabama.
Time
It was an overcast day while I was riding around with my dad. I saw the old steam locomotive and was able to figure out a way to get to it safely through the kudzu. It was during the wintertime so the snakes were hibernating.
Lighting
I was skeptical on the lighting as it was overcast. However it created the mood that I was looking for.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D3200 with the Nikor 18-55mm lens. I was freehand shooting this picture.
Inspiration
I wanted to capture the age of the old steam engine. The clouds added in helping to capture this, including how it deserved to be kept alive or at least the show the history of the railroad.
Editing
I changed the coloring and turned up the vibrance all the way, including the shadows and the blacks. It's mimicking a HDR picture, but only in one shot.
In my camera bag
I normally keep a lens cleaning kit for firearm optics, but this one is made by Frog Lube. I also keep a Tamron 18-270 zoom lens, small gorilla pod tri-pod, Soft cloths and hearing protection for airshows or any other loud aircraft are also kept in my camera bag.
Feedback
I'd say the best advice is to keep your eyes pealed while you're out and about and driving. You never know what you'll find out there rusting.
