A nice image between the Old and New. I would like to see more of the sides showing. I ran your image through Topaz DeNoise AI and Topaz Brightness and Contrast AI and came up with this. You can now see a little more of the sides, which also gives you a little more depth to the image, and doesn't take anything away from the image darkened. I like what you did with the picture.   Posted: 03/07/2023 13:09:56

Well done. It is very dramatic. The red engine just pops.   Posted: 03/09/2023 13:42:27

Deb, I,too, like the idea of combining the old in B&W and the newer one in color. I think it adds to the interest of the image. Great idea from Stu to bring up of the sides of the engines.   Posted: 03/13/2023 13:47:44

A great idea to put the old steam engine next to the new one. The BW and color really emphasizes the old vs the new. I also like the enhancement made by Stuart.   Posted: 03/20/2023 18:05:32
