Oh these are lovely, really lovely.
What lens, nice and sharp they are!

very nice, i have some shots of me dressed up for one of those a couple of years ago at the Severn Valley Railway 40's weekend, the ex liked the idea lol and before you ask NO i am not showing you the pics !!! lol
Nikon 17-55mm F2.8 and Nikon 70-200mm F2.8 VR
wow - these are superb - Does this event take place evey year?
the Severn Valley ones are June 23, 24, 30, & July 1, 2007, looks like East Lancs is yearly
thanks will look these up - ron
SVR will be closer for you too, Kidderminster is the usual start point for it, but several stations you can get to along the route.
Yet again Oy a superb set of photos
Great shots, I particularly like the one with the pipe in his mouth. Just seems to shout that era to me loud and clear.
Hello I was playing the bagpipes at this event on the Monday at Irwell vale and Ramsbottom I was wondering if there are there any pics of me??
heres me anyway with the SS of all people ! DID YOU SEE THIS MAN!!!
I'll have to check, but I think my dad did try to get one of you.
I'll ask him at weekend.
Very nice, I like those alot. 1st one stands out especially with the lipstick on his cheek.
3rd it good aswell, the desaturation works well.
As my son (whiteflyer) said I did manage to get a shot of you playing on Monday.
Some really good shots there -Oy-.
1st shot instantly made me think 'Dads Army' ... puts on voice "Do you think thats wise, sir"
Also really like the last shot of the couple ... looks very vintage, & reminds me of 'Pennies From Heaven'.
Do you go to these sort of events often? What actually goes on at them?
How comfortable are the people with having cameras put in their faces?
Im inerested in attending one of these butI dont have any long lenses.
People shots from the ELR "War Weekend"? Righto...
Basically, it's re-enactors travelling up and down the East Lancs Railway line, sometimes interacting between themselves as well.
Generally, they don't seem to mind... but you'll know by their body language if they've had enough.
All I use is a Sigma 18-125. That got me some good shots, given I could only visit the event on the last day.
Thanks for that Dave.
I may be getting a pass for one of these events but wasnt really sure what to expect.
I was involved with re-enactments myself (medieval) some years ago but with that, there was plenty of freedom of movement, I somehow envisage this as being quite restrictive if its confined to a railwayline/station.
Are the events popular/crowded?
It is a popular event, and can get crowded... especially if the weather's fine.
Thanks Dave ... keep looking at your pic and thinking 'They dont like it up em'!
Heh. Have another...
It's not pinsharp, due to the shot being handheld (as the vast majority of my work is), the shutterspeed being 1/50. and the lens nearing the 125mm end.
I like that too Dave, not sure I'll get much chance with the candid stuff ... not when Im poking my 85mm in their faces anyway!
You'll never know until you try it.
A few more of mine
