There's a lot about this that makes it a Likey for me, Les! The lighting, the color-tones, the steam, the mood.
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, really appreciate the comment.

Great shot, Les! So pleasing on the eye. (:o)
Les Auld: A great engine to photograph Roz, thanks for the comment.
DROOOOOOOOOOOOOL. Likey, likey likey
Les Auld: Thanks Bill.
And it's Great Western
Les Auld: Even the GWR produced some fine engines, although we can show them at their best "up north". Thanks Bill.
I showed a railway fan friend of mine your earlier shots from here which he enjoyed, and I know he would really enjoy this excellent presentation as he is a GWR buff, (for his sins), we both emanate from LNER country.
Les Auld: As an ex LMS enthusiast, can't beat Stanier's best, even I have to admit that the GWR and LNER had some fine looking engines. Thanks for the comment Brian.

Ver yunusual image. Shooting under the lights gives this a very different feel to the more usual "preserved railway" image. Very atmospheric.
Les Auld: Thanks Alan, credit must go to the enthusiasts who set tis up for us to photograph.

Looks fantastic Bill - lighting is tremendous ;o)
Les Auld: Thanks Mike, and thanks to photoshop for getting it right.
Please excuse me whilst I drool over your delightful shot Les: I remember this loco in BR service
Les Auld: Thanks Chris, it is a grand engine.
Absolutely fantastic shot...the post production treatment is perfect, it looks almost 3D. One of your best Les!
Les Auld: A grand engine deserves the best Dave, thanks for the comment.
I'm not into engines but this is a quality pic, I love the effect of the slow exposure
Les Auld: Thanks Nigel, it is one of my favourite subjects.
