The nice puff puff adds to this wonderful picture.
Great sky with it.
Bill Phillips: One for the jigsaw puzzle collection Lady P...The sky would be a killer!
A wonderful and magical picture Bill!

This could have come out of a story-book, Bill - such atmosphere
Bill Phillips: I could be the fat controller

I think I would have given the train a little more prominence
Bill Phillips: I didn't want to place it too centrally

The cottage in the fore-ground is rather delightful to look at ..The backward moving engine is working stoicly
Bill Phillips: Corfe Castle is full of such buildings Comrade....strangely similar stone to the castle

and all the smoke has covered the sky and the houses and walls of the village - I like your composition very much!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Philine. Have a good day. Our Helen is popping over this afternoon with Joseph and Kathryn is coming over too

Nice picture of fairy land.
Bill Phillips: More pleasing than a load of modern terrace houses Ridge
The "nice puff puff" is a delightful addition to this scene, Bill. smile
Bill Phillips: It is the same puff puff that pulled the train we were on Ginnie

Looks like a painting. I can just imagine "The Famous Five" enjoying a jolly romp over the hills.
Bill Phillips: My daughter used to read the famous five

Is today a special day in your family? My congratulations!
Bill Phillips: No but seeing the family will always make it so Philine!
Very nice. The treatment is very different than usual.
Bill Phillips: Done from a single exposure, rather than several Mary
A lovely place with the sea hidden just beyond those hills
Bill Phillips: It is indeed John. I hadn't thought about the see being behind those hills...but I suppose it must be!
You found a good viewpoint here Bill, excellent shot.
Bill Phillips: Just happened to be there as the train came into the station
terrific shot here, the treatment adds more to this scene
Bill Phillips: A gentle twiddle Ayush smile
Has a lovely pastel look to it, Bill. Beautifully composed as well.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Beverly. Pleased you like it

You are an accomplished picture engineer
Bill Phillips: Hit it with a spanner and hope for the best Louis grin
Been at the twiddling box again, I see, Bill smile Good result!
Bill Phillips: It is a way of life for me Tom
Love the smoky sky and smoky grey buildings and of course the puffa train coming into the scene
Bill Phillips: Very obliging wasn't it?
Beautifully caught, Bill. Did you have to wait ages for the shot?
Bill Phillips: It just happened to be coming as I was half way up the castle Pauline

Shame about the radio mast in the background - we are almost back in the 1950s although the colour would have been a tad different Mr Twiddler.

Nice puff puff as you say ;o)
Bill Phillips: I confess I hadn't noticed it!! It would have been easy enough to clone it out.

Silly sausage seems to be running backwards...
Bill Phillips: A common sight when there is nowhere to turn the engine around!
