cjf2: Thank you. I thought it showed off the good points of the camera's sensor for this challenge. The grime of the locomotive and crew and the dull subtle lighting was what made it for me. Did you like the title. I was rather pleased with it!
No they got on fine, it was just a split second they looked like that. They had been up really early to prepare the locomotive and were waiting to get going again after a lunch break.
Wow that's a great picture. I like combinations of flash and movement and that is a classic of the technique. I suppose the adult is a major part of the picture which is maybe not right for this challenge, otherwise I can't see why it did not win.Sorry but I did not vote on this challenge or it would have got a 5 from me. Hopefully it will fit another challenge in the future and win.
Great view. I thought this would place much higher. I've just noticed it is a panorama. I thought I'd been there and not seen such a view! Well done that's the best use I've seen of a panorama.
I really liked this picture. Maybe there is too little to show it is a valley for this challenge but great shot for another challenge. Well done.

Great photo. Might place better in another challenge as it is more about the performer than the lights.I think I'd crop tight up to the elbow to remove the lighting gantry in the top right that competes for attention
What a great picture. Good subject, perfect for the theme and great processing. By far my favourite in this challenge. The birds make it. Maybe there'll be another challenge you can enter it in when hopefully it will be placed higher.
Great picture. I was sure this would win.
The Mick: Woo-wooh! Nicely done.Cheers,Mick
Thanks Mick. The weather was pretty dull this day but the locomotive and train were a good combination for a railway enthusiast.
A worthy winner.
Thanks, Mick. With short circuit motor cycle racing you get a lot of chances as the motorbikes go passed for 16 laps or so and several races in a day. Eventually one of them had to be right! I liked the exhaust to.
Lovely lighting making a great picture. I'm surprised it did not place higher. That is the problem with open subject challenges. Hopefully you can enter it in a fountain challenge in the future.
Great picture. Deserved to place higher.
Brilliant picture. Maybe it didn't say "W" to the low vote people. I'd try it again in a moth challenge as it certainly deserves to win something.
I agree, great picture.
Great picture and fitted the theme well.
Great picture Percy, as many people obviously thought.
Thanks both. I'm pleased you liked it. I must admit I didn't think it would win but I'm trying to get an entry in every one of the A-Z challenges.
I've been away and come back to find this has won which is great. I'm glad you liked it as much as I did. I don't think I can make it to the rally stage on which this was taken, which is a shame.
This was favourite. It deserved higher placing. Congratulations on a great picture.
