The Engine Driver

By TrevBatWCC    
Had a steam train ride out to Goathland from Whitby on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Captured this shot of the engine driver as the loco was uncoupling and changing ends. Thought it suited mono, but included the original colour shot as the version.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5, Nik Silver Efex Pro, and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

superb!! as always Trev
for me it has to be the colour

I like both version equally, Trev.
I love the way the driver seems to be removing an offending 'speck' of something or other!
