Waiting for the rest.....


The other bits are spread around the yard, one day 44871 will rise from the scrap heap to take its place amongst the engines on the East Lancashire Railway.

Resurrection of the dead! I LOVE it, Les. Fabulous processing once again! MY KIND.
Les Auld: Yes indeed Ginnie, thanks to a large band of volunteers we are able to enjoy steam, and photograph it in different circumstances.

...and they thought his time was up!
Les Auld: Not a chance Mike, it will be back, thanks for the comment.
I do believe I have this one ..er '69 Lostock Hall...how sad is that, see you've worked hard on the noise suppression and the light is fantastico.
Les Auld: I remember Lostock Hall, used to pass it on the train from Liverpool Exchange to Preston for some spotting, never managed to bunk it though. One of the last sheds to be closed to steam if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the comment.

Great shot. I think you have used one of those templates again.

I have started making my own overlay templates. I found that it is one thing to have the template and another to have a picture that fits.
Les Auld: Well spotted Louis, and I know what you mean, you do need the right image to use a texture on, not all are suitable. Good luck with your overlays.
Very nice capture Les. Beautyful PP work
Les Auld: Thanks Richard, glad you like it.

Love your processing Les, the lighting is just right for this shot too.smile
Les Auld: Practically all down to Photoshop Tracy, thanks for the comment.
A legendary Stanier black 5. 45110 is at Bridgenorth. Love this picture Les and your overlay. Works really well
Les Auld: I've seen, and photographed 45110, a few times now. Thanks for the comment Bill.
Superb post processing, Les. Wonderful light, too. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, mostly down to Photoshop this time I'm afraid.

Reminds me of the Johnny cash song "I stole it one piece at a time...."
Les Auld: And spread it about a bit one piece at a time, thanks for the comment Dave.

They've got quite a few bits to find, haven't they wink
Les Auld: They are all there somewhere Ellie, I guess someone knows, thanks for the comment.
What else can I say Les but brilliant.
Les Auld: What else can I say but thanks Brian.
The light is great & the PP is fab, Les. Great work!
Les Auld: Thanks Dave, I did not think I would get the shot when I was there, took me a while to work it through later on.
