    G'day *LYDIA*!

Why oh why has no-one commented on this before????? Beats me!

I reckon it is arguably the best of your series due to the following:

1. Your composition shows off this metal monster extremely well with plenty of room around the subject.
2. Your point of view displays the engine and part of the carriages well and takes advantage of the light coming into the tunnel and kissing the carriages.
3. Your exposure for all the smoke and steam and that cycloptic eye is spot on and also shows the engines structure naturally and clearly without that horrible HDR look.
4. Your depth of field, focus and focal point have delivered great clear detail.
5. That weak beam of light is a delightful touch.

I can almost smell it!!! 8-)

Hello Dennis,
Wow, I am so thrilled with your kind words about my "Iron Horse". I will remember them as I try to improve upon each of my photos in the future. This was an awesome trip on this metal monster and something I will not forget.

Keep up your fantastic captures and stop by again BP friend.

Best, Lydia
