Majestic line up of A4's at Grosmont.
Both beautiful, but I like the extra little touches in the colour version.
superb, its that mono i cant tell if its BW or not, if so its a great conversion.
Love it, the wind-blow smoke is brilliant
I like both but I LOVE number two.
Has sort of a romantic, olde worlde, historical, war time feel to it.
Does that make any sense at all Paul, its meant to be a compliment.
Cheers folks for your time and comments.
No problem Lee, I understand what you mean. I decided on the mono version to post 'cause the tones in the colour one have already been seen on here
No.2 for me Paul, but both excellent.
I like the motion in the plumes of steam/smoke.
Mono for me, I've flicked between the versions and the mono has something not in the colour.
All the very best, great series Paul,
Without dobt number 1 and without doubt a HC ... surely ??
Decided it might scrape the EC on a second look. Certainly up there with my fav train shots of recent times.
Scrape, Dan?? ... scrape???
Cheers guys, glad you like them, mono or colour!!!
excellent stuff great comp the wind blowing the steam adds something special.
Really like v2 but v1 has a real sleek look to it,love it.
I agree with Telstar.They are both superb and very similar,yet the colour version has something in it which lifts it a little.
Thanks Elizabeth and Alan, some more mixed views ... which is nice
Cheers too Cole, just spotted it!!!
Very powerful looking shot!
nice composition & capture
Both super images
Yes, the conversion seems to have just a little more detail. And I LOVE the effect of the long exposure!
I'm torn between the two. The B&W works so well, but the colour version has a richness in the smoke that appeals. If it weren't that we've had so many fantastic colour shots of these engines recently, I'd put my preference on the colour one, but as things stand, the B&W does bring something different to the party.
I love them both, the drama of the B&W, and the subtle smoke tones of the colour. I would have been chuffed to have taken either. Well done.
oh, forgot to say: defo the B&W.
Like the long exp effect on the smoke, no.2 for me,
The colour one for me.
Cheers all, appreciate your time and comments
I like both shots but I think the coloured one just has the edge for me.
Great just...... great
Both are great.. but I think I prefer the coloured version.
mono is great, but the almost mono colour version is simply stunning !
amazing composition too...
Another great shot Paul... and the mono really suits it.
Mono for me Paul.Lovely work to both images.
mono for me too - very nice. One for the wall
Timeless image Paul. Ron.
Thought the term 'scrape' might niggle you a little bit
Niggle away Dan ... he deserves it.
Tis a good one Paul.
Doesn't niggle at all ... baldy :-P
Cheers everyone for your time guys and gals, and thanks too MrU for your lack of a critique
Two marvellous shots Paul, mono looks stunning.
Runninig out of complimentry words now ...so its gonna be cracker again
mono it is!
LOL @ Chris, that'll do nicely mate
Cheers folks, ta for the mono vote too guys,
Got to agree with you Paul, the mono is superb.
Has to be one of the best series of shots I've seen. Every one a winner!
Thanks Darren, glad you agree.
Paul, that's a fabulous compliment ... thank you!!!
Clicked earlier but thought I'd come back and comment after it had another EC badge on it The most imaginative steam train shot I have seen for a while, just love what you have done with the smoke trails. Easily the mono for me and you are starting to make me envious of your pf so stop right there!
Thanks very much Dave for coming back and for leaving your award, means a lot.
Only starting though Dave ... ???
Lol!! Ok I admit it
LOL ... that's better
Number two has the edge for me this time Paul.
Another cracking shot.
Beauty of a conversion too mate.
its a goody Paul
Thanks ladies & gent, I appreciate your time and lovely commments.
All of these have been exceptionally great photographs and this is no exception.
Enviable shot !
Ta Sam, glad you think so!!!
Bl##dy heck Pete, that one came in silently ... cheers though!!!
Made my weekend now,
And remember, I gave out the award first. So, they are all copycats...
Congrats on the EC, very well deserved.
Congrats Paul, exposure and comp are perfect.
LOL Cole ... won't forget
Cheers too Ian, good luck to you for POTW too,
Thanks too Gilly!!!
B&W suits the subject really well Paul, but I also really like the colour version. Congratulations on the EC.
EDIT: I came back to it. B&W takes the honours by a small margin in my opinion.
Thanks Nigel, glad you came back. The colour looks spectacular printed, will run this if I get chance over the weekend to compare.
from me too
Congrats Paul on the EC
Terrific exposure Paul. I love the mono - especially the light on the tracks and around the engines. Well done on the EC too.
Thanks Howard, I'm more than a little ... 'chuffed'
Fantastic and the colour one even more so, as I Doncaster man I love these trains so it has to have this weeks Gumby. Love all the other shots of these trains.
LOL, cheers for the Gumby, Brad ... means a lot.
Colour one looks great in print, this one's gonna get a run out too
It's not often I'm wrong .....
... 'scraped' in there mate ... cheers
Excellent stuff Paul and congrats on the EC
Cheers Mark, just this minute run this out and it looks ... sweet!!!
congrats on your EC Paul
Thank very much Angie ... enjoy your weekend.
Both work well, the colour version shines as adds burnished sheen that lifts the light.
Thank Melanie, they both look a bit special printed ... think the colour one may just edges it. Then again ...
Well well! Cracking image Paul, congrats on the EC, about time you got one for your trains
LOL ... cheers Martin, and for a mono too
Big congrats Paul! Superb work as always.
Thank you Karen, appreciate it ... enjoy what's left of the weekend.
Well done mate on your EC.
Superb, Paul. The swirling smoke really makes this, well, smokin'.
Congrats on the EC too!
LOL, cheers Pete ... I know what you mean
Congrats on the EC Very atmospheric.
PS V1 for me.
Ta Penny, glad you agree
A stunning shot Paul, great atmosphere, smoke and backdrop, and a very well deserved EC.
I took Jake to Didcot on Sunday, but Thomas the tank engine does not really compare to 3 A4's!
LOL ... I'm sure he does to Jake though
Has to be the mono version, and congrats on the EC.
Missed thi9s one Paul congrats on EC
T'is a beauty.
Ta Paul, hope you're well!!!
Congrats on your EC mate.
Cheer mate, well 'chuffed'
i just do not know what to say. this is just fantastic
Thanks very much David
Like both versions, the colour adds stuff that is distracting but the colour of the engines is ace.
Now if that b&w version had been printed in cobalt blue like we used to in the old days!
Pause whilst I put on my flat cap etc etc.
