This was a real nice shot, the steam gave it a lot of energy and interest. I was one of your many 7s; congrats on the nice placement.

Sarah I really like the kind of desat / low contrast feel you have done on this shot, has almost a painterly feel to it, very nicely done!

This image is cool, but I also think it falls a little flat, but not necessarily in a bad way. Almost feels like a drawing. Not a fan of the thick, white border, but that's a personal bias that I'm aware of.

From a technical standpoint, this is a terrific effort - crisp, sharp with everything detail well controlled and captured. From an artistic standpoint, it's rather bland and uninviting to the viewer - images occasionally suffer from too much detail and this is one. Sometimes an image, even one as technically competant as this one is, is just an image. A worthy entry into the challenge and directly related to the challenge subject. A good effort falling short in the artistic sense.

Nice shot, I would have like to seen this shot on a sunny day or even a partly cloudy day.

I came back to comment and bumped this one. The subtle, sharp detail and huge clouds of steam are wonderful on this shot. The viewer can almost hear the whistles and bells and clanks and creaks. This shouts.

One of the better ones I've seen so far in this challenge - glad you chose this one! (Comment only, no vote.)

you captured a great scene, but i think you overdid the shadows detail recovery and the image loses on contrast
