It's worked then!

I like this a lot.
It's busy, cluttered, colourful and vibrant. Everything that needs to be is in focus and the people, particularly the guy with the boiler suit, the boots and the thermos give it a feeling of realism.
If I was to find fault, it would be the use of the frame, although that's perhaps something of a personal thing as I don't much like frames of any kind and I find this one just a bit overpowering.
I do like the 'edge' that you've applied to the image though. Even though I don't know how you've done it!
Hope this helps.

Bren.

You have certainly done that which you set out to do. I have uploaded amod because I did find this a little dark and a bit dreary in the shadow areas and have attempted to rectify that.

It certainly is good with the people there adding interest with their pertinent attire. I suppose you have a little extra there with the old nationalised industry workers sitting around drinking tea whilst the passengers wait at some far off station.Smile
