Award Shortlist   

Steam Rail Driver , Somerset Steam Railway (Minehead).

By UrbaneMagick
My little boy is obsessed by trains at present.

The driver had an interesting look about him, so..well, so here he is .

Left the D2X at home to try out my new camera the d7100 ..quite pleased with it actually!

Have a great evening,

Gareth.

Simply superb Gareth. An image which has been very well observed and captured, whilst your choice of processing adds to the nostalgia and the charm

Thankyou again folks,

A beautiful picture which I hope could form a triptych with another two shots on its right... the chimney and the wheel of the train Smile

brilliant image Gareth - great composition and i feel that this type of image looks particularly better in mono
thinking of buying a D7100 because research suggests that low light photography is good up to ISO 3200 - what are your thoughts?

Hi Ava, I like the d7100 ....... I;ve kept my d2x for its ruggedness, but it's nice to have a light camera.

The d7100 seems to cope well with low light....... I used it with a slow ultra wide lens for the Snowdon series & it seems to have done well into twilight.
I have splashed out on a fast lens for gig work.,..and the combination is superb..for low light the d7100 does knock spots off of the d2x ..at fractions of cost.
