This my last shot in series of Canadian Pacific HOLIDAY TRAIN taken during the early evening of the 30TH November 2013 at Gage park in my hometown of Hamilton, ON (Canada.)

The post processioning in Camera-in-the-RAW I fixed the colour balance, and brighten a hint, and then resized to 600 x 401 pixel and then applying the UNSHARP MASK till it looked suitable and lastly saved in JPEG mode.

You are quite a long way under exposed. I know you ave to be careful with the reflective jackets but you needed at least a stop more. If this is your camera gun rather than a more powerful attached unit, you are out of range. Better to up the ISO to give the gun more apparent power.

More exposure, then a decent image.

I just tried a mod but there is just not enough shadow detail and everything goes green. You needed more light in the first place.

There's potentially a decent composition here, using the Pacific sign and the diagonal in the road, but you needed to push the ISO way up if you really wanted to get it. I would have passed on the opportunity, flash plus high-viz jackets really equals photographic nightmare!
