    Popye The Tractor

    Another old tractor; but this one is still working around the fish quay.

    It is a David Brown and is lifting the bronze centre keel from a Salcombe Yawl.

    Beautiful machine.

    The first seems is a bit busy and, I think, could do with the exposure taken back a bit.

    The second is, I think, a much better picture in which the tractor is very much the focus of attention

    Yes, Donald, but I included the first photo because it shows what they are lifting.

    I did play around with that one but the new paint is causing a bit of dazzle. It was an awkward light angle; about 3 pm and the tractor is facing SE. Probably a little bit more selective adjustment is required, although I did tone down some of the white areas.

    Looking again at the second image. His face was starting to get a bit noisy so I reduced that a bit. On reflection, I think I may have gone a little bit too far.

    I have had a second go at the first image with more selective adjustments, but I can't alter the background. That is just the nature of this area. In fact I tried many angles and these two were the clearest of background clutter.
