"T(h)REE" Trains!

By MrsS    
Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying Sunday!

Thought I'd give you a rest from my usual fayre, and delving through the archives I found this one that I had never got round to doing anything with (most likely because a certain someone was stealing the limelight!!!) Wink

So, since it's Sunday, and most folks are busy doing other things, I thought I'd try a mono, since

A) I'm rubbish at mono conversions
B) there'll most likely be no-one actually looking at this

It's from when Clive kindly lined up the A4's at Grosmont for us photographers delectation Smile

Thanks for looking - - honest input please, enjoy Sunday evening, just watching the match Sad, hope we buck our ideas up in the second half!

Cheers!
Fran xx

A good conversion Fran and I like the way the steam/smoke is filling that sky area.

Nice one Fran ...subject so suited to mono.
Obviously those rails drag you in and great detail on the A4's.

A) I'm rubbish at mono conversions...ME TOO.
B) there'll most likely be no-one actually looking at this ...I ALWAYS TRY TO HIND THEM ON THURSDAYS...SAME REASON.

I don't normally find train shots appealing, but this has a wonderful, nostalgic feel about it helped in part by the B&W processing. I love the way the rails come in from the two bottom corners!
