Stuart...I really love that middle shot, the high-key-ish one with all the steam! So atmospheric (no pun intended)
focussed on infinity.....pity about the near vision

Nice series Elwyn, the weather looked good.

The last shot (of Bob) could start a caption competition

A fitting photo...


Pat (catlady), [Pat's friend - sorry can't recall the name at present!], Stuart (Stuart1701), Rob (YourFunnyUncle), Martin (mgjsmith), Chris (dCap), Patrik (Pyl), me, Elwyn (Saratoga), Mark [at rear], Simon (Godsakes), Matthew, Manfred (Maffe), Paul (TallPaul)

Not actually taken by me, but by a very nice lady called Debbie Piggott who I think we may have persuaded to get an a350... :-)

A very good day, with good company!

Thanks to everyone for making this a great day. Got home at approx 20.30 last night and sat eating and "drinking" until about midnight which was, I am led to beleive somewhat early for Manfred. He is still curled up like a baby, and I am am reviewing some 500+ images - how crazy is that! I was shooting right up until I walked out of the exit gate!. Now Manfred and I have six days of walking, shooting, listening to music and making a dent in the bulk purchase of beer and wine from the supermarket! Once again, thanks to all, and hope to meet again. No doubt once Manfred has got his head together later this morning, we should post some images. That should be fun, two guys sharing a Mac! Martin

I was thinking along the same lines with the group photo and a "working load 175 tons" - great choice of positioning, whoever spotted it !

...agree re Stuarts #2 shot, but for me the telephoto compression contributes as much as the high-key steam.

Looking forward to seeing more [of the trains, at any rate, lol]

Stuart - can I ask, is this from RAW or JPG ? - just curious if it used DRO, since the range with the skylights and shadows looks really good [although, granted, the fill flash helps with under the main subject] - thanks...

Thankyou for your comments

Manfred still has not surfaced so I "prepared" three to get get going. Looks like it's going to be brunch today!! We may even get some shooting in - doh! Martin

Hmmm - methinks the first is a little light - needs some drama!!
