I tried but it was to big and slippery
I'm only 4fut3, but I look a lot bigger from a distance

A sexy little Q with 8.5mm Prime.
And a cup with a gorrila on it, it's also chipped a little, but holds tea perfectly well.

A most enjoyable day and great to Neil and Peter for the first time and David and Barry again. Sorry you didn't make it Daz you would have enjoyed the day.

This is my only candid shot, Peter photographing the "Rawtenstall Express"




The rest of mine are here (don't want to upset anyone!)link

Nice set Barry, love the driver shot.

Thanks Cliff! - looks like I could lose a few pounds round the middle. I'll have to find the one I took of you picking your nose

I like the monchrome Standard tank in the mist, Barrie and the light looks good from the opposite platform (Trackside Bar) on the green saddle tank. I wish I had tried that side myself.

Do I get the pedant prize for spotting that the Standard tank is mirrored for artistic effect? - "08008".

Thanks Cliff, I think I'll have to try some B&W conversions, but I will not get up to your standard, they are impressive

Peter, you'r not supposed to tell everybody about "08008"

It was a great day at the ELR, good to meet old friends once more. I like the pics you've posted so far + Cliff's excellent photos in his portfolio.
Here's some of mine:

Steam at Bury



The same engine again - at Irwell Vale



B1 climbing the gradient at Irwell Vale



The B1 late in the day at Bury



The joy of travel - an excited passenger at Ramsbottom

I like the colour rendition in those photos David.

Considering that we were shooting (partly) towards the sun, they seem nicely saturated.

Is that due to your lens & hood combination or have you enhanced them with a little post-processing?

The only post-proceessing Peter was in levels and routine cropping, except in the picture of the B1 under the bridge at Bury where I did add a tiny amount of saturation enhancement. We were shooting against the sun, when it shone at all, for much of the day but with the correct lens hoods this isn't normally a problem exept in extreme cases.

It would have been better if these pictures, and those some of us did the previous day from Beamish, had been entered on the forum under Your Pictures rather than Local Groups and Meetings.

Thats just a touch of "Wetherspoons waist" Peter


Great set David and being a mono fan I`m going with the first and last, both excellent images.

It's too complicated, we will just have to remember for the future to start a new thread.
