and yes the punch line of the title should be A train Driver, just couldn't resist.
(Thanks Brian for pointing outh the typo)
First off thanks for the support on the recent images and a big thanks Pete for the HC on the last image.
Another from the recent trip to Grosmont. When you've had enough of them shout STOP as theres loads more ...
I must rediscover what colour is
As with all my black and whites please have a look at the large version (the small version does compress the tones).
Top class image Nick... love the mono treatment - it adds hugely!
excellent!!!!, great shot!
A great character and good atmosphere. Nice one that's ideal for mono. Andy
Brilliant picture, well done.
Really comes to life in the large version. Wonderful tones.
Not bad not bad at all Nick specially large, badge time again me thinks
Well worth view large Nick - great tones and details - well captured and processed.
Still living the dream...
Bill once had a student's mother turn up to a parents' evening announcing, 'Wor Renee's going to do Performing Arts A Level because she wants to be a pole dancer'.
Thanks everyone. Quite an amusing tale Moira, so did Renee ever make her chosen vocation?
Absolutely love the tones in this black and white image. Would be interested in the techniques you used in Photoshop/Lightroom to get these lovely black/white/grey tones?
Lovely gritty image, I can almost smell that steam.
Paul thanks for the comments I use Lightroom and Photoshop CS2. No real secrets I always have an idea in my minds eye how I want the monos to look. The one piece of advice I would give is don't be affraid of pure Black and White, otherwise it can look flat. I use different techniques for different images.
Definitely should be viewed large for the lovely tones. Excellent capture, Nick, beautifully processed... like the title, too!
His thoughts look far away Nick,a good capture.Nicely converted...I'm rubbish with B&W
The pole is well placed on the LHS third,at first I thought a small crop from that side would be in order,to get rid of that lighter oblong at the edge of the frame... but having another good look...it's good where it is.
I like the bit of steam over his hat,places him right at the scene.
Thanks everyone. Big thanks Janet, strange, great minds etc I tried with that exact same crop, kept going backwards and forwards. In the end I went with this as the dark tones seemed to get lost in the corner.
This is an exceptional portrait showing a mad at his work---well defined, appearing to be casual yet highly detailed and complete!
Excellent in the dark mono and an inspiration as I view!
thats a cracker and great mono tones.lesley
