This Steam engine was one of many parading around the streets as part of the Abergavenny Steam, Veteran & Vintage Rally on Sun 3rd & Mon 4th June 2012 in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, UK.
It was made by John Fowler & Company in Leeds.
The mono background works well here well done
Very clever colour popping.
Really like what you've done here..........Sandy
Ideal way for this image. I really like it. Well done! TG
Lovely work, it really makes the steam engine stand out.
It pops out of my screen - brilliant processing.
VERY well processed image.............
Nice processing. Shame you cut off part of the wheel though.
I really like the subject and composition. The flat cap of the driver matches the scene completely. I like the fact you have gone for the processing style you have. For me because the background is modern and not terribly attractive I might have been tempted to go a step further and either blur the background (Gaussian blur) to draw attention to the main subject or convert to black and white, sepia tint with a vignette. Regards Russell
two things here:
1. I do agree that the background should've been blured a bit to allow for more depth
2. More attention could've been given to framing the scene - the front, bottom wheel has been cut.
apart from the two things above, I think this is a great photo and the mono works very well too.
Well done my friend!
this is a beautiful image, with an interesting steam roller subject with people to give scale. the detail and colour are first class as is the composition.
Thank you to everybody for C & C's, this was a last minute picture grab whilst shopping and a few hours process late one evening/morning.
wonderful processing, wonderful photo. deserves a lot more votes!
Great result, deserves far more attention.
I'm not fond of colour popping (or whatever name you know it by !) but it works fairly well here. I like how the effect is subdued nearest to the driver. I'm thinking you made a selection and reduced the saturation, as opposed to applying a desaturation gradient? I also would agree with others who suggested a blur on the background. Good shot and good processing. Well done.
Damn that wheel! Otherwise Perfect, I like it.
