Yes, well-done! Naturally colour gives it away, perhaps seat's cloth as well. But the look is there.Smile

Beautifully done.

I would be tempted to lose the part of the window on the left, just to hold the attention on the main subject.

A wonderfully recreated scene beautifully composed and illuminated. However I feel the processing is not in keeping with the era.

That's interesting because I purposely spend less time on processing to try and keep a more authentic look.

Very beautiful Scott, great atmosphere

I have added a variant with an aged look. I did consider a tighter crop but on reflection decided it would make the picture more like a portrait and much less like it was taken on a train. Keeping the edge of the window and seat makes it more like a candid picture which is how I wanted it to look.

Yes, you are right about the crop. Removing what earlier I considered contemporary colours helps finding the right atmosphere. Good show.
