I took this at the county fair last night. I converted to greyscale and did a levels adjustment. I really like the color version on this photo personally, the light was just getting that golden look when this was taken.

Apart from the casual wear of the 'engineer' ('driver' to us over the pond), and the profusion of power lines, the mono version could very well be a photo from the engine's heyday. It's got that beautiful crisp tone.

There seems to be some noise on the forum today...

Bob, great work. I've seen a number of these old smoke belchers and have quite a collection of photos of them. I love to see them in operation. It's amazing how those little steam pistons on top can move that thing around let alone pulling something. As you probably know, they don't move very fast and seem to do their best work sitting still and supplying motive power to a threshing machine or other equipment.

Great conversion.

Cal

Thank you all, I appreciate your nice words! Minoltanut, I love what you did to the photo!!!!! I have a old photo album and lots of old photos in about that same looking condition. Would you let me know what program you used to do that?
