Wonderful colours and processing. Tough competition this week, often it would win.

tecnoworld: Great picture. Just a question. How were you able to sharp freeze the persons at just 1/20sec?

Image stabilisation and luck! It was full aperture and on 400 ISO which is as high as I wanted to go. I see I took 30 pictures over 3 minutes and not all are sharp though focussing seems to be more a problem than shake. The lens has an old IS system but it copes with this speed ok.

Steve Bingham: Nice, very nice. And I see some cheater gave it a 1 star. ?

Thanks. I like the way you process many of your pictures so I take your comments as a real compliment. Worse than 1 star it is a 0.5 but well it happens all the time so I don't get too upset. I still think the scoring system is pretty clever working with low numbers of voters.

The Mick: Hello cjf2,
I really love the cinematic feel you've provided in this photo. Very intriguing shot and beautifully done. The title is icing on the cake. ;o)
Cheers,
Mick

Hi Mick,
Glad you like it. I've done it several ways including black and white. I wish all pictures out of the 7D were as easy to use! Funnily enough I'd never used the lens at full aperture before but this picture showed it is worth trying when the light levels are so low.

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.

On That Was Close in the Kids at amusement parks challenge (1 comment in total)

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.

On The Wye Valley from Symonds Yat Rock in the 'How Green Was My Valley' challenge (2 comments in total)

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.

On Green of Nepal in the 'How Green Was My Valley' challenge (1 comment in total)

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.

On Caparezza live @ Koko, London 12/10/2014 in the Stage lights challenge (1 comment in total)

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

On Carew Castle in the Fortress challenge (2 comments in total)

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.

Thanks Mick. The weather was pretty dull this day but the locomotive and train were a good combination for a railway enthusiast.

On Y is for Yamaha in the A To Z - Letter Y challenge (2 comments in total)

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.

On 20140812-_m1b8272 in the Four Thirds Sensor Challenge challenge (2 comments in total)

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.
