The gentleman on the left knew that I was focusing on the First Class sign, so he was very careful to sit back out of my way.
I love it when that happens...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Wow! Thanks Ollie, and thanks Tony, that must be the fastest UA on record!
I had been fiddling with the b&w conversion for a while and last night decided to rework it from scratch. I'm quietly pleased with the result.

Wow you're off without a shove this morning Moira. 4 awards and just half nine. Are these two brothers by any chance? they do look quite alike? It's a relaxed image which seems to have fallen into your lap in the enclosed carriage. Great vanishing act by the guy on the left.

Well done you,

Dougie

Thanks again folks, and particularly to John for adding his UA - this is quite a morning!
Dougie, no I don't think they were related. They were out for the day with their wives who were sitting to my right and fortunately were keeping their legs in tidily.
This was the third of four shots that I took, by this time the gentleman on the left was quite fascinated by what I was doing. His friend was in a world of his own.

The power of the image. At first it looks like a grab shot/candid, but there's so much detail in the scene and unanswered questions about the gents that it keeps your attention for far longer than usual.

Thank you Trev, and thanks again everyone else! This is proving to be quite a day!
Trev, I processed the b&w conversion using Silver Efex Pro 2, the High Structure (smooth) filter, but with Brightness and Contrast both reduced a bit and some further work afterwards particularly on the midtones. I had already done quite a bit on the RAW file, because the light balance between the two sides was very tricky.
