    Thanks LaRee! Great to hear from you. Have been so busy in my work (and w. my summer pics), that havenīt had much time to diskuss in the Panasonic forum.

    Old Finn,
Hats off to you. Though not novel, you have applied professional photography and made best of the blend. Excellent choice of aperture that provided full range focus, iso 80 to make clearest of it and 1/8 seconds to compliment the above under exposure. Finishing touch by B&W.
A well deserving win.

    Thanks your all for your kindness. I must say, Im very pleased and proud for the success of my pic. BTW, it represent a museum locomotive stored in the railways station of the little Finnish town, Kerava, where I live.

    Crop for comp looks good. A minor pick on that would be to pull the top down and the right side in just a bit. Enough to remove that upper right corner. Looking at the rest of the shot I don't think that would hurt anything. Your b/w conversion looks very good. Well done!

    Great B&W. Lots of detail and perfect placement of wheels & track for the composition.

    Something a DSLR with typical lens would have difficulty to match... Terrific PIC and perfect subject for this challenge.... Good work.

    The black and white really work well here and I like the framing. I had a similar potential shot with a tram

    A beautiful photo in B&W. Love the sharpness.

    A great angle for the shot.
I think every photographer at one time or another tries this shot and you have captured it well.
B & W conversion a must.
My #1 -- well done.
