I prefer this to the under the bridge shot George, some wonderful detail in the engine, all the better with the larger size file now.
Again you seem to have positioned yourself ideally for the photo, but lots and lots of editing??? But all worth it I think, well done.

Like Jeffrey, I think that this is an even better view.The editing of the loco itself makes me think of the great paintings by Terence Cuneo, especially his "Evening Star" painting. Very nicely done; you and Sir Nigel Gresley have made a fine job of this

Yes I think this is the better image of the two, but that's not saying that the fist one was poor , again lots of interesting thing to look at and good detail. well taken

Your editing has given an almost soft glow to the image and made the very best of the detail and colours in the loco, especially to the smoke and steam which adds loads of atmosphere to the image, well done George.
It is a pity about the cars in the background, but not a lot you could have done to get rid of them.

Now this shot has got movement by the barrel-load and I actually flinched slightly when it open up fully on the 27" screen. A magnificent shot by any standard sir!
