I agree. There are so many elements which contribute to the success of this picture. The lighting, the overgrown track, the track curving out of sight, the hint of a loco just appearing, the single passenger and that slight dip in the track.

Wonderful!

I'm very behind here (been taking children to Uni, etc etc), but very pleased to find this was the winning picture as part of my catching up - congratulations!

After a last minute flurry of votes ( thanks guys) the March 2023 Gallery winner is... a dead heat between BWLR and myself :lol:

Since I've won a couple of times before, I'll leave it to BWLR to rack his brains for the next theme :D If you could let me have it by the end of the month please Peter?

Both worthy winners. But it was a tricky choose this time. The standard was very high.
Well done to all those who contributed.

A very high standard of entries this time and I think reflected by the votes being spread out amongst all the photos. I’ll have a think about a theme for the next comp.

...and the winner of the June 2023 Gallery is........... "Spring in West Cornwall" by SteamGeorge. A lovely picture and a clear winner by an unusually high margin, so very well done. In some ways that's a pity because there were some other really lovely shots, but this one obviously struck a particular chord with the voters.

Anyway, all we need now is your theme for the next gallery, please George.

PS. Again my apologies for the delay in announcing the winner.

Congratulations, it's a lovely photo!

I like how the hipped roof of the house in the background has L&B station vibes...

For me it reminded me of my younger days when we went out on excursions for the day and the weather was good and all the flowers were starting to bloom.

A well balanced and presented image, good enough to make into a greeting card, in my opinion.

Cheers folks! I have to say the credit should go to the builders of the railway for providing the picturesque scene. Not me!
