    I was playing around with the camera last night, & took a couple of B&W shots of K&I #810 doing some switching on the Four Sisters Branch.

    I think the B&W photos, especially of layouts modeling eras before color photos became the norm, seem to be a little more realistic. Anyone agree?
    BTW, great pix!

    Agreed

    I agree. Black and White tend to hide the details enough to up the realism factor, as well as adding character. That first one is a great shot.

    Hey Charlie, nice to see a photo in Black & White, have you tried the other ones available on the camera yet like Sepia ?
    I like the top photo best of all, it has character, and looks busy.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments!
    Shamus, I thought the sepia looked a little too "old-timey" for my diesel-era setting, so here's a sepia shot of the little diorama that I keep on a shelf in the living room.

    Black & white does look good. I'll see what I can do with my pics.

    That's a great picture, Woodie!
    Your scenery looks like it goes on forever in the background!
    You've done an excellent job!

    The secret is out!

    Thanks Charlie! :cool:

    Should really leave you with the "illusion" phtography can create and leave it at that! A bit of cropping, some enhancing, and colour removal and VIOLA!

    Some of the "scenery that goes for ever" is an out of focus poster on the wall!!

    Should I ruin the illusion?? OK.

    The original.

    Thanks for the pics Woodie!
    Hey, illusion is the business we're all in here, right?

    Another one.

    Here is another one. Trouble is, for B & W, you sorta have to have an olde worlde feel to the layout. I'll have to try some setups that reflect that when I next borrow my friend's digital camera.

    Wow, I really like that Sepia. For B&W I use the greyscale is some image program on my computer as well. It doesn't do the greatest job, but it works. My problem is that my camera will not focus when it is within a foot or two of the subject...too cheap for a good camera I am. ;)
