Another from my recent trip to Wolferton.

This was the Signal Box at Wolferton station, again, now a residence.

The old railway crossing gates have been retained and are now the gates to the property. You can just make out some of the old rails, that have also been retained, in the drive way.

They really have tried to preserve as much as possible of the old staion and buildings, which I think is highly commendable.

Thought I'd play about with this and try and make the lantern the focal point.

I hope you like it.

PLEASE VIEW LARGE.

Nice image needs tracks and trains to complete the pic. if beeching knew that he would create a steam culture he would have been a hero. (to my mind he was) his destruction gave us the knowledge to save heritage rail for all.

Thanks again peeps. Way better response than expected.

No chance of any trains here Graham. The only bit of track for 10 miles is the couple of lengths in the driveway!

Like this one stewy, looks as though the sun is behind the building creating the dredded halo BUT in this shot i think it adds to the composition well.

also like the selective colouring here

Hi Martyn, I take it that this is an HDR?

I thinks its fabulous! the contrast between the red and the b/w is simply superb.

Wish I'd taken it!.

Ian.

ps, I like the fact that the HDR images in your portfolio are at the opposite end of the 'range' to that of most peoples, they offer a different experience and appeal to the everyday picture.

Thanks Ian, I appreciate you taking the time to look at the other images too, and I am glad you like them that way too.

Yes, this was done in Photomatix Pro first, three images combined then tone mapped as usual.

There were a lot of dark and light staight lines in the image so I thought desaturating but leaving the lantern as it was might work.

Looks like I was right for once!
