Station Master by SquarePeg


Available to buy on…

Hello. 20th August and number 232 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Taken this afternoon at the Great Central Railway in Loughborough, Leicestershire.

Today was a Bubblemeet attended by myself, Yhun Suarez, Elaine123, Aggpup and my brother, Matt. We went to the GCR and then on to Bradgate Park in Leicestershire. It was a good day and there should be some stunning work coming your way from these talented artists.

Straight black and white conversion with levels and contrast adjustment and a high pass filter layer at two pixels.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
