Say after me...

By TrevBatWCC    
One or two people mentioned about being able to (or not being able to!) pronounce this name place in my previous upload . Whilst platform 1 has the traditional railway station sign, platform 2 has this more modern Arriva Trains sign, and underneath the name it shows the pronunciation. So, now you can all say it! Wink
Added a bit of radial blur to V1 to try to give it a bit more oomph...

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Thanks for that, Trev, and I still can't remember it in full, 'Llanfairgogogoch' is good enough for me Wink Carol

A tongue twister for sure, Trev: V 1 is very effective......seems to go on for ever.

I gave up. Interesting idea though putting the pronunciation underneath

My internet is too poor to open V2 or V3. Do like V1 and what a strange name.......Sandy

this image certainly has the wow factor if not for the name for the movement blur in the b/g which leaves me to ask - were you on the train and in motion? or is it clever manip! went back for another read of your intro and see you added the blur - very clever workSmile

The most photographed railway sign in the UK - but V1 is different! Great fun.

I hated when I worked in the railway Trev,
having to write out a ticket for this place.
I just sent them to Cardiff.
It was far easier for me !!

Good work on V1; fun indeed, as has been said.

The blur works well, Trev, and i like the phonetics in v2. I notice it was wet as well, Welsh authenticity TongueGrin

Nice series. I particularly like V1. The name beats the hell out of 'Shipley' or 'Wakefield'.

Unless you know how to pronounce letters in the welsh language Trev it does you no good, like the radial blur great images.
