photoblog image All Aboard

All Aboard

Just before the picture I posted on 28th.June, following my visit with a friend to Grantham, I took this at the Railway Station of a chap boarding the train to London.

In my eagerness to avoid getting an untidy row of people, also waiting to get on the train, on the righthand side I didn't notice the reflection of them in the carriage until I got the image up on the monitor and I feel that works quite well.

Is good...almost like an unintended double exposure.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, a bonus as far as I am concerned.

It's very cool, Brian. Ditto what Zed said.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Kay.
Good old East Coast for keeping their carriages so shiny....richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, a touch of Topaz helped with the shine I must admit.
It works very well indeed, Brian. And those coaches are amazingly clean and shiny. Great reflections.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, i did use a touch of Topaz to bring out the carriage side a bit.
The reflection is quite amazing Brian. I like it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, a touch of Topaz helped with the reflections.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Graham.
You've captured a fine image here Brian. The reflection is superb - the train must have been very clean to pick up such a clear one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pamela, a touch of Topaz helped with the colours.

Most impressive, Brian. It took me second to work out what this was. Love the reflection.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Alan.

It does work well. Something like a virtual world in that reflection. It would have taken a lot of spit and polish I believe to get the train car so shiny.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis, it had a little help from the Topaz plug-in.
Reflections can make great shots
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alabert, and this time it wasn't an intended reflection as I commented.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Jennie, it had a bit of help from the Topaz plug-in.
