your treatment makes this look like something out of a graphic novel. excellent effect
Les Auld: Thanks Ayush, a bit of HDR mixed with a touch of Topaz works well. Thanks for the comment.
Engine driver to Fireman: ''Blimey Sid , we cleaned up the engine and she ain't even bothered to come and say thanks driver.''

A little slice of perfection here Les!
Les Auld: Thanks Chris but there are several imperfections if you look closely.

Working up a fine head of steam - ready to roll.
Les Auld: And then was delayed for 15 minutes Mike, thanks for the comment.
The headcode every driver would be proud to have on his engine Les.
Les Auld: Indeed so Brian, thanks for the comment.

Love it (despite it being Great Western)! The shed and the grey metal box may be the only things to date this image. I like the framing with the bridge and the al important steam. Very atmospheric. I hadn't realised that there was a specific head code for a Royal train; obvious I guess now!
Les Auld: Sometimes you have to admit that other railways have a presence Alan, thanks for the comment.

No-one does steam trains better smile
Les Auld: Thanks for the compliment Paul, I suppose it is my No. 1 passion.
