Thanks for getting past the thumbnail !! So back down to earth with my last image ..LOL

Well to todays image, I had this sitting on the hard drive for litrally years, and only got round to processing it just before christmas. To be fair I'm not sure I would have been able to achieve my pre-visualisation of this 3 years ago. There was a lot of work needed to get it just right, mainly caused by refelctions - tho it wouldn't have been a problem here, removing reflections from a high viz jacket wasn't easy.

I uploaded the colour version at the start of the year, but this was always how I wanted it. I know it will split you down the middle, those who prefer colour to black and white and visa versa. What I wanted was to concentrate the eye on the textures, reflections, and give a sence of power from this great piece of early 20th centuary engineering.

I don't like those starburst speculars Nick .

Kinda interrupts the depth of attention it deserves.

And beautiful tonal depth it has...

Great image - I personally prefer the mono, as I think it helps you concentrate more on the details.
