Steam Train at Shantytown


This engine which worked coalmines at Kaitangata in Otago for 70 years was preserved by the mines department to the West Coast Historical and Mechanical Society Incorporated and was transported to Shantytown by the Ministry of Works and New Zealand Railways.

These are fantastic. You should do more black and white. I love the dramatic tones. Black and white really gives these a nice historical/nostalgic feeling.

How did you do the second to last shot with the benches? Is that a Photoshop effect?

Just a tiny bit of vignetting :)
