Southern 825 at Goathland

By TrevBatWCC    
After lunch at the Goathland Hotel and a wander around the village, I made my way back down to the station to be in time for the trains pulling in, which is 10 minutes to each hour. This was the Southern 825 to Pickering, which was just arriving at the station. In order to get the front of the train as it stopped, I shot from the road bridge, some 150 yards down the track, rather than the footbridge at the station itself.
Thought it suited the sepia treatment, and gave it touch of Orton effect too to soften it. V2 is the original as shot.

Techie stuff see Exif
Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, Tone Mapped in Photomatix Pro and tweaked in Elements 6.

It has to be V2 for me, love all of those colours. I'm not keen on the softening in V1.

I was looking forward to seeing the colour, but when I opened it, it seemed a little hectic after the softer, calmer tones of V1! So that's the one that gets my vote, V1 Smile

Sorry Trev not so sure about V1 at all, I have to say I prefer the colour version. We are working at Goathland tomorrow.

I like V2 best Trev - but V1 does certainly have a charm about it

Love the comp and it's V2 for me this time as I don't really think the softness of V1 works well for this subject, but would probably have gone for for V1 if it had been in sepia without the Orton effect.

I prefer v2, Trev, even though I am a softie when it comes to mono / sepia. There is just something so very 'Thomas the Tank Engine' to v2.

I like both images and normally a colour person thro and thro but I do think sepia suits this picture well - great composition

Not convinced about the Orton on V1, but I love the rest of the processing here, and a very well captured scene.
