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!

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.

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,

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:

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

Thanks Fred. they certainly do!
