Just be grateful that she hasn't noticed those very much larger rocks a bit further up the track that would fill the wagon quicker.

Lovely shot.

Maybe in time you will be able to get her to load and unload wagons for you.

Nicely composed - I bet it would look good in black and white.

A photo good enough to deserve more than one viewing to appreciate it gets my vote. This is such a photo.

Hi Phil
I did try it in B/W and in sepia but, because the background is a bit 'busy' the crane and its operator disappear.

With my Fat Controller's hat on, I have to point out that entries for the Gallery should (a) be the sole work of the entrant and (b) not be manipulated!
I'm sure Rik will do the right thing, and the original picture doesn't need any embellishment anyway, IMO.

-steves- wrote: Sat Jun 12, 2021 3:26 pm How about this one for you Rik, made it old style with the centre focussed and the edges blackening out, lol. Please do feel free to delete it from the thread ;) I see what you mean about the crane operator :cry:
Thanks Steve. As you say, the crane operator sort of disappears into the foliage which is why I decided against going b/w. Also, looks like the adjudicator's decision is final .... :D

An ideal job for a Wickham trolley! Did you commission an aircraft for the aerial view?
