Thanks for your good comment Adrian. In addition to the natural light I did bright the bulldozer up in the post processing.

Now, that's very nice - better than I could imagine me doing - green with envy- how did you light the machinery - if it was flash, top marks, very subtle, and in just the right place - not a trace in the snowy grass - very, very good - Most impressed
