From a recent trip to Hungary:

This is a historic engine that is put to work every Monday for the tourists between Kecskemét and Bugac Felsö at the border of Bugac Puszta. Usually they only run a diesel engine.

Tokina 12-24, Colors via Andy&Tony in Bibble.

Here are some details (no Tony, only Andy for B&W):

Like the drips in #3 and the way you silhouetted the person in the first shot. The tone is very good in these too although I'd darken the first a bit more, add more contrast like in the other two.

Thanks Mike,
I was thinking about more contrast on the frst, but I am still unsure if it would keep that old look. Time to get off my lazy bum and exeriment.

thx

The faux sepia really works well with this photo!  I think you could up the contrast, and as long as you keep the tone, the photo will still have vintage appeal.
