Hey Gang,

Been awhile since I've been in here, but I'm pretty pleased with this shot and thought I'd share it with you all.

Flickr Link

It was taken at the Colorado Railroad Museum on Saturday during their "Shay Days" weekend when they had Shay No. 12 fired up.

C&C always welcome.

Boy does this look like a period shot. Very well conceived, famed and converted.

I love the B&W. It goes great with the railroad theme. The contrast and detail in the blacks are great. Have you tried it in a sepia tone?
