Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Thanks Ralph. It took all of 10 minutes to achieve the conversion, courtesy of Silver FX Pro!

I printed it out on a matt art paper up to my maximum capabilities of A3 wide, and it looks good, so I'm just off the phone after ordering a larger framed print from Peak Imaging.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Not wishing to take anything away from Stephen's splendid photo (or add anything to it, like a steam train ), but Denis Thorpe is a photographic hero of mine and I have a print of his Ribblehead shot on the wall:

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Nice picture, taken from the other side of the viaduct. He could do with cloning out the con trails.

I prefer Stephen's.

As a local, I think it fixes it better in it's surroundings.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

That's some compliment! Thanks!

Actually, that's what I was trying to show. This massive civil engineering feat dwarfed by its natural surroundings (that's Ingleborough in the background - one of the Three Peaks). Somehow I thought a train on it, whilst it would be a great picture in itself (and I have some with diesel railcars crossing), would detract from the construction of the bridge.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

Thanks Peter. I knew there was a bit of limestone pavement over this side. However, it meant crossing part of Batty Moss. I sent the dog and the wife ahead to test the sheep trods for sogginess!

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

A nice conversion a stunning photo both in colour & B&W it doesn't bother me the absence of a train on the viaduct.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

That's a fantastic shot, well processed. It's great to see how a bit of discussion among sensible people can further improve an image!

I know many people feel happier about 'shopping things out than 'shopping them in, but I don't really think there's much of a difference, ideologically. Actually I suspect this is something to do with a photographer's age - those of us brought up on Kodachrome still tend to shoot to fill the frame and accept all the image contains on its own merits.

(I suppose you could always get rid of that nasty, grubby old brick thing running across the middle of the image, Stephen...)

Thanks, Mark. It is a bit of an eyesore ...

Nice shot. Ribblehead viaduct (with steam engine) is on my to do list.

Re: Ribblehead Viaduct

I've been over a few times in a diesel railcar, but to be behind a steam loco would be something else.
