photoblog image Footplate Firebox

Footplate Firebox

I took this shot of the footplate of a small tank locomotive, a "Jinty" to those who know, at the Midland Railway Centre in the summer.  When I came to edit it a few weeks later I suddenly thought it might work if I gave it this colour popped finish so a quick run through Tint Photo Editor to pull out the red glow, and a bit more twiddling and here it is.  I will probably enter this in a Open competition at my Club during the current season.  I entered this into a club competition on Tuesday evening, the Judge loved it and kept it back in the final group but it didn't quite make the rostrum, I'm happy with that, the winner was a cracking shot.

Well...I think this is a cracking shot, Brian.

A fine shot & happy memories for me Brian. We always had a Jinty shunting the yards at Bath Green Park until eventually being replaced by WR Panniers in the 1960s
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. I never saw Jinty's much at all being an LNER based boy in my childhood.
All the metal comes out well with this treatment Brian almost a 3D effect. This should be a winner.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.

The treatment of this is making me feel the heat coming out of that fire Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased about that because that is the type of effect I wanted with this shot.
The heart of the engine, great capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred.
great selective coloring
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
This is excellent,Brian, really good use of selective colour, and b/w, the brew cans add the final touch, I can't imagine what beat it, my fave' of the day. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Frank, this is a link to the winning image on Tuesday evening http://www.flickr.com/photos/suonnoch/7578197342/in/photostream
Makes a great shot Brian and I do like what you've done to bring out the red! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Martin.
Excellent decision to pull out the red glow, Brian. You can almost feel the heat coming from it and I agree with Martin, it does give it a 3D look. Great job!
Brian Walbey: I will be hionest and say the colour pop didn't occur to me until I got the image on the screen.

That looks so clever to me, Brian
Brian Walbey: Not too difficult Lisl, but I didn't get the idea until I saw the colour version on my monitor.
Nice processing Brian, no wonder it caught the judge's eye.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, another time I used Tint Photo Editor.
Wonderful with the selective colouring Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
This works extremely well Brian. It deserved to do well in the competition
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, good old Tint Photo Editor again.
A nice bit of colour popping, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, I had help from Tint Photo Editor.

My favourite part is the tea flasks Brian - I love it when simple things shine out of the gloom.
Brian Walbey: They were one of the reasons I took the picture Mike.
Wow! i missed this yesterday Brian ...apologies. This is terrific.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Good idea, well shown, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.
This works very well Brian - I like you worked the selective coloring!
Brian Walbey: I didn't think of the colour pop until I got it up on my monitor, it does work reasonably well I think.
