About the Image(s)

This was taken earlier this year at a steampunk event I went to and from which I’ve already shown a couple of images to this group. I’d completely overlooked this shot until I was reviewing images and decided it was worth upgrading to an image that might be appealing and eye-catching. I decided on mono as the the silhouette image worked best that way and kind of helped the ‘period style’ of the image. Taken on my Fuji XT1 1/50 at f16 with ISO 400

Spooky and fun, Peter. Halloween just past, this has throw-back feelings to all the events of then. Well caught, composed, presented. "The Ghost of Diesels Past."   Posted: 12/03/2019 15:54:28

Peter, I really need to tag along on your next Steampunk shoot. You have shown some very interesting and different takes on the gathering. This is another one that has so much going on in it - in a positive way. The woman on the track could carry this image on her own as well as the train being a separate one as well. However, they both compliment each other in this scene. A very minor point, could you open up the shadows on the wheel area of the train? I think there is a lot there.

So when should I book my flight?   Posted: 12/04/2019 09:24:45
