The Wonder Of The Train...

Discussion in 'People' started by Graeme, Apr 10, 2007.

  1. Taken two years ago on a trip to London on the train......

    With a Panasonic Lumix 2MP point and shoot............ :wink: Worked for me!

    Don't you just love photography!!!!!!!!!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

  2. Great shot!
    I like how you included the newspaper in the composition.

    Love it Graeme! The only time I have been on a train was going from London to Burton on Trent and then on to Edinburgh......your home town. :smile:

    This shot reminds me of how much fun I had with my dad making that trip.

    A very cool shot compositionally.

    Good stuff!
  5. Thanks Tim! :wink:

    Thanks Dave, it's cool that you took the time to look! :smile:

    Ok. how come you haven't told me that you'd been to Edinburgh before.......... or did I miss that one? :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Think back and you'll remember my photo..... dedicated to you..... of my tweed cap purchased in Edinburgh in 1981. I still wear it every winter.

    So did you shoot these in B&W mode or convert later? Honestly the tonality reminds me of the images that come out of my Leica D-Lux Point-and Shoot when set to B&W mode.
  7. Sorry my friend.......... I've got a s*** memory! But I remember that one well!!!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Shot as per camera settings (colour) in jpeg. then converted to b/w tonight! :biggrin:

  8. Stu, I was thinking the same thing....has that "Leica Look".

  9. Graeme, wonderful image...and great tones/contrast...love it, and the conversion. I remember taking the train from San Diego to Seattle once...an experience that everyone must have...
  10. This is great! I love the b&w!

    Never have been blessed to ride on a train, maybe one day...
  11. Thanks John............. :smile:

    Thank you!

  12. Hey Graeme, very good image - gives the 'wonder" feeling out pretty well :biggrin: one more thing, not exactly photo-related, about trains in general; don't you find it interesting people's comments on train and how they either wish to be on one or remeber fondly when they have been on one? :confused:  to me, the train is a normal transportation system - I used to ride from Milan (Italy) to Geneve (Switzerland) every week when I was studying there, and even now that I am living in Turkey where the train is not so developed as in Italy I am still getting on one from time to time... it just caught my attention, that's all :wink: back to your image, I loved it - it proves as well that Nikon - Canon - Panasonic - whathaveyou - they are just tools... :biggrin: though... I love my D2x(s)! Thanks for sharing my friend,

    Another nice one Graeme. The kids look like they love the train.

  14. Hey Vieri...... it's cool to here from you! I hope all is well in your world!
    I too, found the train comments interesting.. I suppose some folks don't go near them that often, if ever, so will always wonder what it's all about!
    By the way......... still trying to convinve the other half that a trip to Istanbul would be good for my soul! :biggrin:

    And you are right about the "tool" thing!....... though I'm slightly, if not a lot, envious of you little baby (D2xs..)........ :redface:


    Thanks Fred. they certainly do!
