RAW rework, recomposed, lighting adjustments and noise reduced.
This was from my third session in the Engine House.   The first one had been shot on 35mm film and was somewhat of a disaster due to too low an ISO film being used.   The second attempt at 1000 was with the Sony A200 and was better although there was some composition problems.   This version is my best effort so far; the lighting is more even and the composition is much better.   I could probably improve on this if I could use a tripod, but I don't think that would be permitted (and the locomotive is no longer resident there anyway).
This photograph is one of five used in the new biography "Sir Henry Fowler K.B.E - An Henrician's Engineering Journey", current only available from the Evesham Almonry Museum.   It is also one of two used in the review of the book in issue 181 of the "Vale Magazine" (which I wasn't credited for).
