[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After the great war many troops returned home on train carriages such as these....even more never returned....lest we forget.

Taken at York Railway Museum, turned to greyscale, adjusted contrast and curves, cloned out a sign for the fire escape and selected the roof space to darken to give it a night time look.

A very haunting but nice atmospheric shot!

Hi Brian,

great work - turning it into greyscale gave it a nice nostalgic mood. I like the light and shadows and contrast. Great composition and point of view.

Hi Brian,
What a lovely B&W photo. My only issue with this one is the over-exposed lights. Still a great capture.

Nice mood in this picture and a good comment. An other version "darker" in WS.
Best regards

hi Brian nice peice of nostalia here was at the museum in march realy grt place to visit .you have captured it well in this shot tfs

Hello Brian,

Nostalgia, indeed!
Your pov provides fine leads to the shot from the converging lines and, gives a good sense of perspective. I like how the flags assist towards this end.
The reflected lights look good in the windows but are a little niggle by their oe in the main area.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi Bri!
amazing shot! it gives me the chills when looking into it....great colors, light and exposure...
best regards,

Hi Bri!

I absolutely love the greyscale! It enhances the mood of the photo. So very well done to help us remember. It's easy to forget, especially when we haven't lived through it. Freedom isn't free, is it? Will we ever learn?

I really want to do a B&W or greyscale, but I can't seem to take a photo appropriate for it yet.....I'll keep trying!

I really like this.


Hi Brian!

Perfect postprocessing! You have created the spirit of the old ages! Nice to see!

Nice moody image, POV and composition is beautiful.


My favorite type of shot Bri! I love night shots, with minimal light, creates lots of mood! Very nice pp work on this to create the feeling! I love the feel that the glass and metal give at night. Good job on this one!

Boa noite Briamn
Love the mood you create in this photo.
My regards
