Gleneagles Station

Gleneagles railway station is very picturesque. It retains the old cast iron deatils and supports; the brickwork is kept clean, the paintwork is in keeping, and the gardens are neat and tidy. What not to enjoy.

P.S. I seem to be having a problem with some photos appearing dark (underexposed) and undersaturated. I don't know if it is the camera (I have noticed the occassional shot looking darker than expected on the back screen), my monitor (not calibrated), my laptop (the nvidia graphics drivers adapt to game settings - played by other members of the family, not me - and may not restore when the game finishes ), my editing software, or my eyesight! Please let me know if you think any shots I post are over or under exposed (adjustments made in post processing if I think it looks wrong) and outside normal acceptable limits for an uncalibrated system. Is there any system for assessing the "average grey" of a jpeg so I can compare shots to see if any are wildly out?

Re: Gleneagles Station

Nice photos. - I like all the leading lines.

The first photo appears to be a bit underexposed, but the rest appear to be fine when viewed on my iMac. Why not take the photos in raw format as well as in jpeg and try a bit of shadow recovery in post processing?

Re: Gleneagles Station

Yes, nice series with great composition.

Agree the first photo is a bit dark. The contrast between the sky and building is a bit large. I use Lightroom, and find reducing the Highlights brings out the sky nicely.

But nicely seen and taken,..

Re: Gleneagles Station

A wonderful series, OM, puts me in mind of a UK tv series by ??? ??? who takes us on various rail excursions in Britain. I don't mean Michael Portillo, but another shorter figure.
