Fourth rail bridge

Fourth rail bridge by cdavis

Sorry to be pedantic but it is the Forth Rail Bridge. There aren't another three!

I like the interpretation

Redcar Beach by photodocktor

Featuring Europe's tallest blast furnace I believe.

I like the moody tones and the character on the left is the icing on the cake. Excellent.

Two points make this a winner:
1) the repeating pattern of the front ends
2) The steam between the locos gives the depth.

First class work

Under the Bridge

Under the Bridge by pengam

Yes. Excellent and the B&W suits it admirably

A good, crisp shot and great to see that you have included all the exhaust. I think it leans a bit to the right whereas in reality it should lean into the bend (known as cant) so a bit of anti-clockwise rotation is called for and perhaps a LHS crop to give a square frame and tighten up the composition.

I suspect you planned this but you have executed it perfectly.

A very moody shot. The drifting steam that separates the loco front from the tree was essential to give the depth.

Composition is fine. I would just trim the LHS up to the viaduct pier. I have an aversion to hanging arches.

I like the foreground as that is what harvesting is all about. it also neatly pushes the machine on to the top third. The dust adds the depth.

Trains a runnin

Good feeling of motion but I feel that the inclusion of the bright signal post was a mistake. Much better without it as it is a bright distraction.

Rail and canal

Rail and canal by robincoombes

A very well balanced picture. You have left the Overhead Line supports in on each side which provide the frame. The exhaust falling to the far side of the train makes the coaches stand out.

Only suggestion (not necessarily an improvement) would be slightly less of the plain sky and a little more foreground water to lift the train from the centre line of the picture. The letterbox frame suits it well.

A fine shot, but for perfection it needs to show more of the exhaust because the composition is really the steam arcing over in the top half of the picture and the train curving through it in he bottom half.

I also find B&W difficult. Increasing the contrast to get a good black and half the shadow detail disappears. That's life!

Beaver Tail Take 2

Beaver Tail Take 2 by spikemoz

I do like this although I think the idea could be improved upon.

Personally I would leave out the red brickwork and colour light signal (as nice as it is) as it competes for attention with the departing train.
This would use the bridge solely as a frame.

Try a less windy day so that the diesel exhaust does not blow down and degrade the contrast of the loco.

Finally, with a background of green trees, something other than a green loco would stand out more.

Like I said I do like this and the two tone green was the best livery for a 47 in my eyes.

Catching the morning light

Catching the morning light by robincoombes

The weather for both the northbound and southbound runs was excellent and you have captured the pink of early morning light very well.

OOOPS by barneyj

I like Carl40's use of the word "impact" - very appropriate! To concentrate and capture the shot in such circunstances shows great professionalism & timing. Excellent.

Over the viaduct

Over the viaduct by robincoombes

Very moody and very effective.
Not one for the rivet counters but it oozes atmosphere.
