The afternoon goods - again
A re-edit of a post from yesterday.. Keith very kindly pointed out some significant distortion with the original post so I deleted and I've had another go at it. This is a shot from a few snatched days in West Yorkshire last week. Unbeknown to me was the fact that it was the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway's Winter Steam Gala. A grabbed a few shots at Keighley and then again later in the day at Oakworth, the location of one of my favourite films, "The Railway Children". As well as passenger trains stuffed full of "anoraks" they also ran a goods train - seen here "speeding" through Oakworth station.

A super shot Alan, didn't see the original post, you were quick to delete that one
Full of action here, steam and smoke with the hint of motion blur in the running gear and the loco' and train coming into he shot, luv it.
I can just about accept the female station person but if I'm gonna be real picky the blue mobility thingy is a tad distracting and has to go.
Ohhhhh luv the washing on the line, adds authenticity to the shot, well done.

Much, much better Alan and well worth the time and trouble you took to make the changes. Steam, smoke and oil is always a winner with me and this action-packed shot is a cracker so I'll just sit back and enjoy the image and a trip down my childhood train-spotting memory lane.

A super shot Alan with plenty of bellowing steam & smoke etc coming from the funnel. Well taken & edited.

Great POV and quite a bonus in only having the official GU, George has noticed the disability walker but a tricky clone exercise there. However there is a house chimney pot behind the steam dome that I think should go, as it looks like it is on top of the boiler.
Sorry but am I the only one seeing a ghost/double image here ? More apparent in some areas than others. Just doesn't seem to be your usual pin sharp image Alan, apologies but just my opinion.
