Hows it going. The lighting in this is good and the positioning of the driver gives the shot a nice balance. The colours are good and that probably comes from your PP conversion. I wonder what the shot would look like with a B&W conversion. By the way, if you got on train and got off at Grosmont (prob wrong spelling) you'd have seen where they filmed Heartbeat !!!

Interesting and impressive capture, enhanced greatly by your HDR post processing technique. Just enough HDR to pull the shadows out a bit and adding a bit of detail, in my opinion. Nicely done! I like the composition, too - just enough train to show that this shot is about the engineer. If I ever get back to Great Britain I will have to remember this train so I can take a trip of my own.
Have a great weekend!

The engineer of a steam locomotive looks like enjoying his work. An interesting PoV has been chosen. Neat and clean engine is adding charm. Such a fabulous portrait, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Its a pity that photos do not convey the smell of steam trains as well as the visual stimulation. Probably not eco friendly but for someone as old as myself I can still remember the steam train era with a sense of nostalgia and the smell. Very nice shot with good composition and colour.

I think this really suits the tight crop. The shot is nicely 'weighted' by the position of the driver, and the loco's boiler is also well compressed by the focal lenght, but still gives a nice lead in. Good pp too. A super location, I must get up there again, I last went in 1984!

What a powerful shot with amazing details, Dai!
The colors are just amazing and contrasts are wel kept within the scene.
Person with blue clothing and his way of posing for this shot also adds to the appeal of the picture. Well caught mood and action!
Have a nice weekend.

Very nice capture of this train engineer in his cab. I tried to get the engineer to pose for me in my train photo but he refused. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
