I found the drifting steam a bit of a nuisance in my shot, but here I agree with Mac that it adds much to the atmosphere. Perhaps this would suit a mono treatment too?

Very pleasing, David. I do love A4s, one of man's most beautiful creations.
Best wishes,

Andrew

A purely personal opinion but I feel that A4s look oh so much better without the side valances! Some nice shots David.
