A contrast in black and white, from the pure white of escaping steam to the black areas of the locomotive Duke of Gloucester. Shot at Carlisle on Saturday July 3. C+C welcome.

Your description of the image is apt David - it represents those things you nominate very well. The engine lends itself to that contrasty approach too, IMO.

Nice conversion, I think it might look better cropped at the top to just above where the number 7000 is and from the left to just behind the rail.

Thanks for your comments. Appreciated. Aliengrove hits the nail on the head and I totally agree with him. That was the picture I would have liked but this loco was quite a distance away and I shot it at 135mm then cropped it to get in closer. If cropped any more the picture quality would suffer even more.
