D_Pearce_3

At Norwich Thorpe Junction a class 37 departing with a summer Saturday working to Great Yarmouth from the Midlands in September 1982

"Someone said they'd not seen this view. I said, 'it's Thorpe Junction'. They said 'oh', not very convinced. But then they wouldn't be. They'd have been on the bridge - it was easier to make a picture from there!"

Dave Pearce

 

D Pearce 3
A well seen image of an apparently bored group of young people whose peace is about to be shattered by a class 37. Very few criticisms, though not overkeen on foreground out of focus railings, but unsure what could be done about it. A bit of spotting/cleaning up in Photoshop wouldn't come amiss. (Bob Avery)

 

Good human interest but could crop to just above 3/4 milepost. (Ian Cowley)

 

This is very well seen and full of interest. The empty bottom left hand corner is a bit empty though and jars a little. (David Flitcroft)

 

An unusual approach and a good idea to include the knot of trainspotters. I feel a base trim to just below the 3/4 post would tighten things up a little (Geoff Dowling)

 

Two pictures in one, and they complement each other well: top left and centre right in the frame. The indifference of the young people to the train is well captured, especially that of the girl – lost in though and not even taking any notice of the three boys. The shadow in front of the train makes a good frame. (Martin Higginson)

 

They're obviously there for the trains so do they now a 37 is approaching from behind! possibly need a bit cropping off the bottom but can see the attraction for retaining the 3/4 milepost! (Jonathan Cordle)
