Somewhere between Ipswich and Brisbane, on the Ipswich line. Possibly either Taringa or Auchenflower.
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I was editing photos and blog posts, and took this photo with the iPhone. I waited until the sun was shining in a good spot, to add a bit of life to the shot.

In the full sized version of the picture you can see each individual pixel on the laptop screen.

The camera & lens:

Camera: iPhone 4
Lens: iPhone 4 fixed lens (30mm equivalent) @ 3.85mm
Exposure: 1/25" @ f/2.8, ISO 80

Post processing:

Lightroom - I used a harsh curve to bring my picture out of the background - highlights +45, lights -50, darks -60. Also set clarity +100 (to sharpen the text and my picture), and very slight fill light (10).

The wash-up:

Happy enough with it. The first time I tried this, I was in a different style of carriage and had full windows behind me - not available on this trip.
