Yes
Free week
It works well. It maybe a little over saturated for me, but the overall, good job.

Empty
It's not often you'll find an empty station. Good pov too.

Hi Tim,
I really like the shot for empty. The low PoV works really well.
Cracking portrait for your free week. I really like the colour pop too. I really must get myself to one of these events - there are some amazing photo opportunities.
Good framing and perspective in you shot for Building. It leads my eye right into the photo.

That's a lovely shot for building. Like the angle of view and the vanishing point. Are these scaffolds?
They are indeed scaffolding. It's a temporary foot bridge bridge over the Reading Main Line at Feltham
Like that Tim, great angle of view looking straight down the middle, does it need a slight tweak to straighten it?
Hmm, I'm not seeing any further tweaking, but then I know what it looked like before I straightened it!
Awesome shot for colour pop. Totally nailed that one. And your take on PLASTIC works for me!!
Cheer Bob. I do like the colour pop (and so did the cosplayer).
Nice trusses!:giggle:
I like the symmetry, and it's certainly an interesting perspective.
It's a smidge off centre, but since you risked life and limb getting in there to take this image, it's entirely forgivable!;)
Er yes, risked life and limb on some stairs ;) It was my favourite of the bunch I took.
Building
It's busy, but I actually think that works.
Cheers :)

Cheers Lee. I do like the building shot. Even though there isn't anything really at the end, I too like the way your eye is really drawn through.
If you do go to a Comic Con, do bear in mind the accepted etiquette is to ask, rather than snipe.
The cosplayers are (in general) only to happy to pose, most will know appropriate poses for their characters and are more than happy to have a chat / explain who they are etc.

Week XXVII - Dirty

The unglamorous, some would way 'dirty' side of railway preservation, the engineering / shed side that is usually not seen by the general public. Here we have a 7F from the S&DJR (Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway), also known as the "Slow & Dirty" on shed at Minehead.

Like the scaffold shot for building, as for dirty it looks quite tidy to me if the trains the subject then it’s a bit lost for some reason to me anyway.

It could do with a bit more grime, but there certainly is some and I thought it worked on two levels (the actual dirt and S&D being known as slow & dirty). But I might just be geeking...

Great work Tim!

Dirty: Lovely to see these magnificent leviathans being cared for.
It's a great 'behind the scenes' image...unglamouress?..yes, but it doesn't look that dirty though, but I'll take your word for it that it is.;)

Dirty: Scary, psychotic nurses give me the heeby-jeebies!:giggle:
Great portrait and the blues work well with the pink costume.
Her disarming yet menacing expression is perfectly captured.

To be fair, that is one of the cleanest steam sheds I've seen, they are usually a lot grubbier. But still the dirty side of the railway when passengers don't go, vs the stations and carriages which are kept far cleaner in preservation than they would have been during the end of steam.
Its a strong world you inhabit, nice enough portrait and no BG issues,
you have hundreds of these now have you considered doing anything with them, a book or something
Getting close to 11k Cosplay images on Flickr Allan (probably over double that stored locally). I've never considered doing a book, but I am giving back to the cosplay community by sharing their images back so they can actually get 1/2 decent shots. When you are cosplaying you get so many pictures taken, but rarely get to see them. Everyone I take photos of gets details of where they can find the images on Flickr, FB & Insta.
The background is one I took with me to that event, which isn't something I can do for most conventions.
