[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the second of my images of old Victorian steam engines that gathered at the British & World Ploughing Championships in York last September.
In this image you can clearly see the steel cable under the belly of the fire box/boiler the was used to tow ploughs across fields. I have another shot of the plough in action that I will share tomorrow.

This image has had a little work done on it: Firstly, I cloned out some of the more modern vehicles in the background and cleared away a little clutter in the foreground using the cloning stamp tool in PS. I then did a little dodging and burning followed by some sharpening of some of the detail on the engine. Lastly I converted to B&W and added a sepia tone and border to the image.
Hope you like it.

Hi Dai,
Good PoV of the old steam engine and sepia tone works well

Olá Dai,
You did well to use photoshop because for purpose like yours is indispensable tool.
The result is this sense of beauty that the image boasts.
Good photo.

Hello Dai
The cloud behind the engine works well to highlight the details, and good work cloning out the background distractions.
