photoblog image Diesel at Toddington

Diesel at Toddington

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

During our visit to The Gloucester Warwickshire Railway last July, from which I posted some images last year this Class 08 diesel shunter was driven in to the platform whilst the steam hauled train was on a trip down to Cheltenham.

The yellow warning stripes on the end of the locomotive tempted me to present the picture in this fashion.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, and I oooked at the link, I agree with you. I have also bookmarked the link site for a further exploration.
Not so cute as steam but a nice little engine all the same.
Brian Walbey: They have been around for a long time now Chad.
Nice attempt at a 1960's Bridget Riley painting.

Nice result Brian,i also liked the link Chris posted with his comment.Hope you have some more railway shots still to come from your files.
Brian Walbey: Thanks graham, I had a train picture on Wednesday and there are quite a few more coming up in the next few weeks.
Works well, Brian - those stripes must have been shouting out for this treatment!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. I used a freebie called Tint Photo Editor as a starting point to isolate the colour.
I love this Brian! Crisp, wide range of tones and the perfect colour pop smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Pamela.
This is superb Brian. Great selective colouring!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I used Tint photo Editor, a freebie, to isolate the colour.

If it wasn't for the colour, you would think this was a vintage photograph! I know why you have done this, but personally I think I would have preferred it straight b/w.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: It does look good in straight B&W Ingrid, I just felt like having a bit of fun with this, I must show it at my Camera Club, some of them would prbably think this is an abomination of a picture.
Ah the 'Umble and Ubiquitous 08. I can see just why you have gone for spot colour on this one Brian, a fine image and a good view of Todington as well but I do have one complaint- it is just too clean, shunters should be under a layer of grime and oil.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les. This 08 wsas in immaculate condition, shiny paint and very clean, not as they used to be as you say.
great shot
Reminds me of my days in the New Zealand Railways......
Selective saturation is perfect!!
well done

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Aussie.
Very good...I like this.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much David.
very creative ! i love it!
Brian Walbey: There was a mixed reaction to this shot Ryan, I'm pleased you like it.
great subject. i have seen lot of images of locos but not any specifically of shunters. great job with the selective colouration.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, I done it like this for a bit of fun.
