Wonderful! It's like they're from another time - kind of ghostly, sort of. You used the light beautifully to your advantage. (Did you use any of your special light effects, also?) I hate to say it but, I love these (as usual!) (Agatha Christie, except in Dutch.)

I upload a psd file for you (see pm for the link)
i use a fixed frame, so open the psd and your picture, then place the picture in to my psd
resize it using edit>free transform
hold the shift button and grab a corner and start to resize until you like (dont let go of the shift button)
add some other filters as well, just play with them

Like these a lot, but tell me - are they cobwebs I see in some?
The only one that doesn't quite work for me is the last; because there's a very sharply defined bit of daylight showing under the carriage which really 'grabs my eye'.
Very nicely done,

Hi, Dave! I didn't realize they were cobwebs, my mind took in scratchy, old photo. No wonder I was thinking Agatha Christie! Also, Vandenberg, I did notice that bright patch, too, but forgot about it scrolling back up and looking through them all again. That last photo has such a wonderful sense of place/context.
I fiddled around in PS with the piece of light that you gave me. I'm very, very, very new to PS and it was good practice to remember what I've figured out already and I learned, at least, four new things, tonight,....only, I realized a couple of them a little too late. SO! This is just a very messy play around (I need to give up and go to bed!) but, it's worked! Talk about post processing that adds atmosphere to a photo - wow! Thanks, again!

Like Dave, I find the last one is not as strong as the others. But the rest are, I think wonderful images. The way you have framed and composed these, as well as your processing have given us images that are full of atmosphere and mood, as noted by Katy.
Again, this is a wonderful example of how getting in close to a subject can work so wonderfully well. Many people who don't think hard about their composition, will stand further back and try to get the whole object in the frame. The creative mind knows to look for that image that is different.
ps - Katy: I like yours as well.

I like these trains taken as if from a small childs point of view, as if overcome by the complexity of the engine and focusing on small areas.
The processing is also wonderful and I'm taking note. However I do not know the process you use.
It could be useful for trams; I have great deal of trouble taking pics of trams because they tend to be full of kiddies, and of course the close up won't include any but it is not much use as a historical record since a spring is a spring and looks much the same on any tram.
It is very arty though and might be worth a go. cheers (refrains from getting out pics of trams and trains )
