23 Nov 2009 6:26am
I like very much the b/w and, of course, the details of this old machine.
23 Nov 2009 6:44am
I've never thought that this was a cow-catcher! great!
23 Nov 2009 7:14am
Fantastic detail in this b&w capture.
23 Nov 2009 7:15am
It looks like a pencil drawing. Fantastic.
23 Nov 2009 7:31am
Fabulous B&W and close-up and such a thought-provoking title, Jack !
23 Nov 2009 7:52am
@k@: It's what they called the front of those old engines.
bw perfect for me. Love this subject !
23 Nov 2009 8:01am
Perfect B&W! The feeling is that it has been freshely greased and shined! Wonderful detail!
23 Nov 2009 8:06am
Cool BW shot ! I can feel the strength of solid metals.
23 Nov 2009 8:54am
Fantastic BnW shot..
23 Nov 2009 9:11am
WOW! Very impressive!!! Great contrast and lighting. I love the title :)
23 Nov 2009 9:18am
Love the mono treatment. Love the details. Love the light. Pardon my ignorance, but it catches cows?
23 Nov 2009 9:36am
@Nicholas: I'm not certain they caught many cows, but that is what they called the gizmo on the front of the engine.
Exquisite detail. The b&W really works..just excellent!
23 Nov 2009 10:18am
Amazing light and shadow...wonderful B/W! I can feel the strength of solid metals. Stunning photo! Greetings master! Thanks Adela
23 Nov 2009 10:25am
Beautiful B & W image.
23 Nov 2009 10:58am
I wonder if those things actually moved the cows off of the tracks or pushed them and mamed at the same time? I guess trains did move slower in those days though.... Now, I will be pondering this all day:)
23 Nov 2009 11:00am
I didn't know where those things were made for.
23 Nov 2009 11:46am
Minimalismo acertado y cuidado
23 Nov 2009 11:48am
A very stylish detail for N / B bright and beautifully contrasted!
23 Nov 2009 11:58am
I think this is for B 'n W cows! :D
So, do you feel any older today?
23 Nov 2009 12:15pm
@Judy: Not particularly older, but infinitely wiser!!
this is a beautifully layered image.
23 Nov 2009 2:52pm
Great details and perfect contrast.
23 Nov 2009 3:05pm
Oh, such wonderful details, Jack! Love this in B&W!
23 Nov 2009 3:11pm
Again, such an impressive shot. Wonderful detail and perfect b&w processing!
23 Nov 2009 3:26pm
Super closeup. BW is awesome !
23 Nov 2009 3:52pm
A fine close up of this important element of older trains. I especially like the nice range of tones you produced with your exposure and processing. The bright highlights makes the metal parts very attractive. Very well done.
23 Nov 2009 4:04pm
Stunning b&w with superb tones!
23 Nov 2009 5:01pm
an imposing image, outstanding b&w and details !!
23 Nov 2009 5:05pm
It is massive and squat as aurochs, it is also graphic, beautiful in its stark contrasts of B & W, I like this light that flashed steel and thoroughness of detail, ground full of gravel. I like the force that emanates from it and the angle of view that puts so much value .. force haunting .. Bravo Jack.
23 Nov 2009 5:43pm
@Alivia: Merci, Dane.
Very clear and sharp image, well done!
23 Nov 2009 6:02pm
this really jumps out of the monitor with it´s sharpness, spot on ;)
beautiful details and dof, excellent contrast!
23 Nov 2009 6:09pm
Wonderful is a good word for your photo ...
23 Nov 2009 6:21pm
@micke bergling: Thank you. I can't find you on Am3.
Another stunning shot. (The air hose is slightly incongruous with the steam locomotive.)
23 Nov 2009 6:25pm
Beautiful detail captured in this BnW.
23 Nov 2009 6:33pm
AWESOME detail and tonalities!!!
23 Nov 2009 6:47pm
@dj.tigersprout: Thanks, dj, for all of your recent kind comments.
excellent b&w, wonderful clarity!
23 Nov 2009 7:05pm
Un excellent plan serré sur le détail de ce magnifique devant de locomotive ancienne! Très beau NB!
23 Nov 2009 7:16pm
very very nice
23 Nov 2009 7:22pm
Cool. I guess in Alaska they would be called a moose catcher. ;-)
23 Nov 2009 7:44pm
@B. Thomas: Right!!
A little preference for the colored pictures. But anyway, a very good composition.
23 Nov 2009 7:53pm
Gorgeous composition and B&W. Superb!
23 Nov 2009 8:03pm
@Steve Rice: Thanks, Steve.
Beautiful shot, but what a gruesome thought...."cow catcher" !!!!
23 Nov 2009 10:00pm
@Susan: I don't think many cows have been caught.
Another strong B&W of this machine...
The composition and the light on the steel are magnificent.
23 Nov 2009 10:30pm
Un b&W excelente. Nítido y contrastado. Buena selección de enfoque.
23 Nov 2009 10:53pm
Handsome details....love the silvery glow of the black and white !
23 Nov 2009 11:25pm
May be buffalo catcher? Nice details.
23 Nov 2009 11:31pm
Strong contrast and composition.
23 Nov 2009 11:38pm
I really like the old steam engines. This is an excellent b&w with a lot of interest to it.
23 Nov 2009 11:45pm
I think the tone of the shot is really bringing out power of the engine.
24 Nov 2009 12:43am
Such great shot...I like your point of view!
24 Nov 2009 4:46am
A lovely crackingly sharp B+W shot.
24 Nov 2009 11:03am
excellent detail and tones! well framed
24 Nov 2009 10:03pm
Still one of my favorites.
25 Nov 2009 3:37am
So glad to see this. I was trying ot explain this to some students of mine the other day. Cow Catchers...:)
25 Nov 2009 4:14pm
Love all your train shots, but this B&W is my fav! Something about an old train and B&W..... great job!
26 Nov 2009 9:08pm
