Award Shortlist   


By UrbaneMagick
This gentleman was a Lister B steam Traction owner , who was exhibiting at the Dorset County Show.

He wore a t-shirt emblazoned with : " Lister B owners Make Better Lovers."

I've entitled it "The Crow Man", as he reminded me a little of the Crow Man in the Wurzel Gummidge series.

I've uploaded the original colour straight from camera version also.

A real character, & I love characters.

Hope you like it,

I think I want V2, he's a colourful gentleman after all.
Looks more like a Morris dancer than a traction engine owner. Maybe he does a bit of Morris as a side-line?

Image Number One Gareth certainly goes to show, there is wisdom in those feathers.

Great portrait, very well captured and processed.
