Interesting color contrast, the dark engine with a little stripe of red across the front of the engine. The train cars being bathed by the white steam all set against the light green FG and BG. Actually, I was interested in the FG of the original. What kind of animals are they?   Posted: 05/01/2022 20:43:33

The animals are sheep. The two on the right are Swaledales and the others are a cross between Swaledales and Bluefaced Leicester sheep which are known as Mules. The lambs are about a week old. If you want to know more about Swaledales see:

I love a good old steam train. Your crop is excellent and fits the the subject perfectly. Great shot!   Posted: 05/03/2022 07:56:22

Wonderful image, David. Like Candia, I think your crop is perfect. To me, the image is "made" by the curve of the train tracks, the smoke, and the red strip on the engine. Well done!

I have never been fortunate enough to capture a steam train. This is everything I would want in an image. But I have to say I don't object to the sheep in the original, you have a nice v-line there leading from the sheep to the train and to my eye it is a good balance..

WOW! Love this photo..I would give it a bit more room in the front of the train. I hope one day I get to photograph a steam train!   Posted: 05/09/2022 12:23:43

Really engaging subject. Thanks for sharing. The processing has broken up the trail of steam and smoke especially towards the end of the train and I wonder if that could be done selectively. Also the group of dark green trees that sit behind the smoke and steam trail is very contrasty with the steam and they don't look entirely natural. It catches my eye, so I wonder if they could be lightened and desaturated a little.   Posted: 05/11/2022 00:10:55

A very nice image. I like your crop, as you can now see the train is coming out of a tunnel. This is an action picture as you see the smoke following the train out of the tunnel and the dark green color of the engine balance the light green of the land around the train.   Posted: 05/16/2022 14:18:52
