My second study of ICRR 1518, a 1923 2-8-2-Mikado engine on display at the floodwall in Paducah. As can be seen from the position of the drip streaks, it was moved recently...about 5 feet. It was a huge operation.
I love the strength and stability, and the subtle shades of gray.

Slightly flat for my liking, some more highlights and shadows would do wonders for adding depth and character to this photo.

Just a little lacking in contrast IMO, but interesting to look at.
