    During the recent SIJ I took the opportunity to transition from processing my images in ACR or DxO Optics and Photoshop to RawTherapee and GIMP.

    I think I've now cracked it, certainly in terms of monochrome, and have been processing many of my older images. Over the years I've taken many at the South Devon Railway, mostly on special weekends with engines from elsewhere or running unusual duties. These go back to 2012 or 2013 and the cameras are either the Panasonic G1 or GH2 often with the Panasonic 14-45mm zoom.

    This engine went in the shops for a paint job at the end of it's week in service, it was kept dirty to be in keeping with services during the final years of steam operation
