Hi Janusz,
I really like this image. I like the foreground of the colourful wild grasses & shrubs,I like that dirty black cloud of smoke, billowing from the steam engine,I like the old building as well as the lamp posts.I would have preferred that the car was not in the scene,as it competes too much with the train IMHO, my eye is pulled towards it to much.I wondered why you chose f6.0 as I feel the train & carriages could be sharper.I looked at your gallery & your images are tack sharp when they need to be,so wonder if you meant it to look a little soft to give it a warmer mood? or?

Hi Janusz,

Nice capture of the steam locomotive. The billowing smoke adds some nostalgia to the image and the tall grasses in the foreground add a nice touch of color. I understand what Ronald is saying, but under low light conditions one has to trade-off; either softness due to wide aperture or graininess from a high ISO.

Nice work.

Best regards,

Hello Janusz,
the motion of steam engines are rare scenes nowadays. I like the lovely composition with the headlights on and the space filled with black smoke. We at once go back to yesterdays...
