The LB works very nicely here -- ads a sense of motion. Also -- this is one of the better conversions to B&W.
All the detail is there and yet the tonalities are very rich.
Nicely done.

The LB manages to home in onto something intensely personal, still; a direct link with the detail out of the bigger picture.
The blurred, disappearing figure on the left is important as contrast.

The composition is the best of this image, Anne. Our focus is automatically held in the centre by the two foreground figures, then the line of the train, supported by the line on the platform lead us into the distant and the disappearing figure.
The moving figure, left fg is looking at you, as is the railway worker, and they both have a somewhat questioning expression,as if you are about to be confronted about something.
Excellent use of the LB and processing. Had to be mono.

I couldn't say it better than Malc.
This really captures this trainman as he is.
My dad was a railway conductor, and this brought back fond memories of him in his uniform.

Excellent candid capture, Anne, and very nicely processed, too Smile The conductor doesn't look too happy about being photographed, and looks like he's about to pull out a gun! Wink

a great composition, depth and motion concentrate on the conductor.
and I love those 'industrial' arches, so 'm glad that there is enough detail in the rivets!
