Thanks to everyone for my votes and comments on my horse, I really appreciate them all!

Today's image is another one from the Bluebell Railway; this young lad had quite classical and photogenic features, he also noticed I was taking his photo! I spent ages trying to straighten the bottom but it wouldn't have it, so apologies for the uphill window frame!

Lovely image Maggie, wouldn't have noticed the angle, the boy clearly is looking at you but you have created a very mysterious atmospheric image, I like it

You could have even cropped off the bottom of the window. The boy looking at you is great in itself. The b/g is a wonderful colour.......Sandy

This is a lovely candid Maggie - the boy does have a lovely face indeed Smile The uphill window does not detract from the focus on the subject - in my humble opinion Smile

The window gives a natural texture overlay. He is very photogenic and has a lovely open expression. Wonder what he was thinking at the time? Grin

Dave has got there ahead of me - a natural filter, always the best sort.

Like the shot, if you want to straighten it, select the bottom of the window free transform and tilt it up at the right hand side and re-crop, then use the burn tool just above the line,, just an idea.

Wonderful image.
Leave the bottom as it is, it looks natural as the shot was taken at an angle to the window, if it was levelled out it might not look so natural. That's my tuppence worth.

The muted reflection on the glass gives a slightly far away feel to this travel image.
Nice find on a station platform Maggie, always vigilant.

Unless you're standing straight on you're always going to get angles. Sometimes trying to straighten everything up makes the image looks odd. But anyway, it doesn't draw the eye at all and the boy is an absolute gift. I like the hazy reflection too, it gives the image a lovely soft and dreamy quality. Smile The two ladies are just right and because we can't see their faces they don't intrude. Top shot.
