Both beautiful, but I like the extra little touches in the colour version.

I like both but I LOVE number two.

Has sort of a romantic, olde worlde, historical, war time feel to it.

Does that make any sense at all Paul, its meant to be a compliment.

Cheers folks for your time and comments.

No problem Lee, I understand what you mean. I decided on the mono version to post 'cause the tones in the colour one have already been seen on here Wink

No.2 for me Paul, but both excellent.

I like the motion in the plumes of steam/smoke.

Alan
Mono for me, I've flicked between the versions and the mono has something not in the colour.

All the very best, great series Paul,

Without dobt number 1 and without doubt a HC ... surely ??

EDIT

Decided it might scrape the EC on a second look. Certainly up there with my fav train shots of recent times.

I agree with Telstar.They are both superb and very similar,yet the colour version has something in it which lifts it a little.

I'm torn between the two. The B&W works so well, but the colour version has a richness in the smoke that appeals. If it weren't that we've had so many fantastic colour shots of these engines recently, I'd put my preference on the colour one, but as things stand, the B&W does bring something different to the party.
Mobieus 8 48 Wales
9 Apr 2008 4:09PM
I love them both, the drama of the B&W, and the subtle smoke tones of the colour. I would have been chuffed to have taken either. Well done.

Clicked earlier but thought I'd come back and comment after it had another EC badge on it Sad The most imaginative steam train shot I have seen for a while, just love what you have done with the smoke trails. Easily the mono for me and you are starting to make me envious of your pf so stop right there!

B&W suits the subject really well Paul, but I also really like the colour version. Congratulations on the EC.

Like both versions, the colour adds stuff that is distracting but the colour of the engines is ace.
Now if that b&w version had been printed in cobalt blue like we used to in the old days!
Pause whilst I put on my flat cap etc etc.
