Thanks for the feed back on yesterdays, the good and the critique
So it's back to monos and one from Grosmont last October, they may be a bit of noise in it but
it was at ISO3200 as is was still pretty dark. Its one I'm deliberating on entering into print comp / exhibition so the noise ain't really noticeable plus
in the print there is a little more detail to it, sorry for pulling it a few minutes ago, just a small issue.


Thanks as always for looking

I don't think the noise detracts at all from an excellent image.

You pulled it just as I was typng,you bad boy !! Wink
I like the angle he is leaning from the cab & love the light on his face.
Excellent conversion Les..solid
TBH that wee bit of noise adds to the gritty atmosphere here.
Good luck with the competition.

Personally I'd ditch the 4 Les, but I can understand the inclusion. If you do, it might be a crop just above that right hand rivet in the cab roof. Other than that it's a fabulously lit face and a great comp.

Noise ain't an issue Wink
Cheers, Goggz

The part of the shot showing the driver is superb, with excellent tonal range that really makes it stand out. I think the '4' is something of a distraction because it is so bright. If you scroll down the image slightly you can see it without the 4, and I think it looks much stronger without it.

Cheers Nick for your UA, I know how you like your mono's and this location, so to get your award is very pleasing.
As for the number four I believe it is an integral part of image, anyone who has been to the location will understand. I can the reason for omitting it but it would still leave a light part of the roof showing. I may look at darkening the top section a fraction but to be honest as a large print the image looks fine as is. Thanks Peter and Rob for you critique it is appreciated.
