Making Steam

By Coast
One from last Octobers trip up to Grosmont in North Yorkshire.

Converted in CS3 with some increase in contrast and a little grain added to try and create a grittier feel to the overall image.

Would love to hear what you think so C&C most welcome.

Thankyou as always for getting this far - if time allows, large may give you a better look.

Think this image has worked well, looked for the shutter speed straightaway suspecting some evidence of camera shake, but the slight movement on the stokers left hand , from the watch upwards works well & adds to the image. Good distribution of tones. Well done

Good details and range of tones in this capture, good composition too. I would suggest toning down the patch of white in the center of the picture as it does draw your eye. My only of concern is the arm with the watch on does look a little odd due to the movement.
Hope this is of use.
Regards Richard.

Excellent study with great tones and details of all the dials and levers.
I personally like the motion blur of the arm, but thought it a shame that there wasn't any coal on the shovel!
