Checking the all clear as they were pulling out of Washford station on the West Somerset Railway.
I had one with full eye contact but didn't like it as much as the concentration on the face here, and the slight hint of the disappearing smile. Just another snatched shot that took my fancy.
I couldn't make up my mind on the crop, no doubt got it completely wrong Tongue

This one works for me.
I think that the image with full eye contact would not have been as good a shot as this one.
This shot looks more candid rather than set up as in eye contact.

Lovely angle on a well-timed expression. This crop gives the full diagonal line of the engine. Works for me.
