Thanks,

The photos are usually taken on a manual mode, lowest F setting with a varying shutter speed depending on the lighting. Some of my lighting is provided with a normal living room type lamp. The steam is cloned in from my real railway photography which sometimes doesn't always work! I then add the lights for the night scenes using the 'lens flare' option on photoshop to add that effect on the station lights & signals. A couple of them have had a bit of extra lighting effect added such as the Pannier at night.

The fog on the G6 is another photoshop effect which is the first time I've tried it.

The shot of the Pannier & M7 however is straight from the camera apart from the resize for the forum.

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?
