Green Machine by shenanigan87 Green Machine by shenanigan87
So, we meet again!



Privately owned V200 diesel locomotive from 1957, seen here hauling aluminium slabs through Leverkusen Alkenrath. Took this today from a photo spot that I never used before, namely a level crossing near an Aral petrol station. That's also where I took the shot I submitted earlier, as they have an Antonov An-2 on display.



Since I usually always photograph passenger trains, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to have some freight in my gallery as well. Now this train may be very short, but the locomotive was by far the most interesting one today. I mean, how often do you see locomotives from the 1950s in regular use? Thought so... Went for a wider crop with this one, since I liked the rails disappearing into the haze.

What do you type into a comment to make thumbnails like this? Or did you make them using html coding?

You can use the regular thumbnail code, but you must have premium membership.

Nifty. I think, though, that I would crop just to the left of the locomotive and pull it all in tight.

Thanks for the feedback! I gave that a try, and it does look quite good, though I'd have to go with something more akin to a square ratio. Guess I went with the standard 3:2 because I liked how the rails end right in the corner... x)

Yes, you would end up splitting the difference between the two sets of tracks.

But my working camera is a Yashica-D, so I think in squares. :)

Heh, I see. :lol: I try to go for the standard picture ratio most of the time, unless of course the composition is fit for a square. :)

Mint ahogy valaki más már mondta: Ameddig megvan a két szin és a V az orrán, minden rendben van. :D De eredeti szinekben persze még szebb. :)

Naigen :). Bár RTS festéssel is tetszett nekem, szerencsére ott is megőrizték a "V"-t :D:).

Ah, wie schön! So lange sie das "V" dranlassen, sehen alle Farben gut aus. :)

Ne V200 ohne V sieht auch nicht so schick aus. ;) Zwar find ich die original Farben schöner, aber so siehts auch noch sehr gut aus. :)

Ich kenne noch orange und gelb, jeweils mit V, das schaut schon gut aus, wobei das dunkelrot natürlich die beste Farbe ist. ^^
Was gar nicht geht: Ozeanblau-beige und die orangene COMSA-Lackierung...

Blau-beige stand leider nur wenigen Loks gut, und der V200 besonders schlecht...
