You may consider this cheating, but no photoshoppery was used for this image:

It's simply a matter of taking the layout to the scenery...

A cracking book, also photographers like Ben Ashworth, Mike Essau, John Spencer-Gills and others were taking far more interesting images than the Eric Treacy platform 3/4 into the sun shots. It’s good to see those more interesting images getting decent coverage. 

I wrote short reviews of ‘Transition’ and ‘Essential Witness’ (a US book) here Essential Witness/Transition  neither of them are cheap, but true quality rarely is.

 Believe you me; thirty quid is cheap for the quality of images in Transition.

 

I was paying well over double & beyond that over a quarter of a century ago, for photographic books by the likes of Maplethorpe, Bailey, Erwitt and their ilk.

I've just received my signed copy of "Transition", a delayed Christmas/early Birthday present, today.  Another and probably the last, masterpiece from Mr Gifford.  Between us Dad and I have his full set and I can't find a weak image in any of them.

The snapper should have asked the geezer towards the front to pull his troos up before hitting the shutter.

Only you would notice that!

Everything started out clean at one point in time :). Great modeling. Is the building in the background a backscene photo or a 3d modelled building? Either way it makes a perfect backdrop. I just couldn't work it out from the photo and had to ask out of interest.

It's a 3-D model - see the link to Tinner's Forge below :)

An intruder at Shirebrook Depot!

Spotted hiding away at the back of the depot next to the water tower a Southern Region Class 33 was photographed recently at  Shirebrook. If you have any further information please contact the relevant Eastern region operating department!

 

This un-retouched photograph was taken on my N gauge layout. The loco is a weathered and renumbered Dapol model, the water tower I scratch built from  a nickel silver etch, laddering platform and tank (from my own artwork) the tower itself being made from plastic sections.

Cheers
