    Wow, Frank, this is really special in B&W! I can see it hanging in a railroad museum. Fabulous!

I could spend a day shooting at a place like this. Nice use of the powerful diagonal lines to add to the impact of the engines. The B&W conversion adds to the timeline. Very well done Frank.

Wonderful image of these old trains, Frank! I love that you 'aged' it and chose to use B&W, which you did beautifully. Trains are so wonderful to experience as well as to photograph and you have done a masterful job here, my friend!

Frank,I'm not sure how I missed this before... better late, etc.
The details of these two trains are marvelous, and the blue tones dancing through the sky and clouds are such a nice touch in an overall B&W image. The thick black frame seals it all together beautifully.
Have a peaceful, easy Sunday, my friend.
