for me
i am not keen on either version of the first one, the train doesnt seem to stand out enough
in the second i prefer the colour version the b/w again doesnt stand out enough
in the third i prefer the b/w it is a really big bold train and i like all the shapes and shadows

just to confuse things more lol

oddly enough people use to hand colour b/w photos
now we have colour and we turn them to b/w
I remember reading how people colored photos years ago. Thanks for the reminder.

And at that it was only two tone (usually blue and red) as three color was far two much work, still giving a slightly colored sepia effect..... where the brownish green came from. (The print sepia toned to beging with)

As well as the period look, I also find that b&w brings out the detail in the complex mechanical parts of the engines. I suppose it is because b&w takes away all of the distractions of the colours and leaves us focused on the textures.

Great shots by the way.

Very interesting captures ... but I think you went a little overboard with the sharpening.

Would love to see it in its original version. To that point - pictures from the old era never looked tack sharp.
