photoblog image Grantham Trains - 2 of 2

Grantham Trains - 2 of 2

The second picture of two from my recent visit to Grantham Railway Station shows a local train ready to depart for Nottingham from the bay platform which has always been used for this service I understand.

This is made up of a two car Class 158 diesel unit about which more can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_158

As you can see just for a bit of light relief I have presented this in three different ways, it will be interesting to hear which you like the best.

Just to remind you I will probably not be able to view and comment for the next few days but will definitely catch up with comments and postings in a few days time.

Interesting, I'd say the top one for atmosphere and probably colour accuracy but the lower one using Topaz seems so clear and could easily be used as a promotional shot.

Topaz has it, Brian. Never have been keen on b&w for this type of shot. I'd be interested to know what settings you have used.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, sadly I never take note of settings, I just click o.k.when it looks alright.
You pays your money you takes your choice....fence sitting me

The original is good but the Topaz (if used sparingly) puts a shine on the finished result
I'll stick with the original, Brian, though to be honest I can't see a lot of difference between that and the Topaz version.
The original is my favourite one Brian!

Which one gives the most accurate record of this shot when you took it Brian?
Brian Walbey: I think the original at the top is the most accurate Graham but I think the Topaz one has just lifted it a bit.
think the topaz just pips it for me Briansmile
The topaz no doubt for me.

All good, Brian, but bottom one works best for me.
I really like they way Toapz Adjust brings out a degree of depth in the image, but it is far too easy to go over the top if you are not careful, No chance of it here though Brian a nice conversion, the mono works well too.
