I've just had a quick look and it looks really good! I love the detail and explanations about photographing railways - specific subject not normally covered elsewhere.

To me, the 'art' in railway photography comes not from post-processing to give the impression of a painting (or whatever). It comes from including (emphasising, even) people, unusual viewpoints, careful use of focus and exposure, making something dramatic from unusual lighting, careful use of blur, very close up of individual components, etc.

In my world (others have different opinions!), a front three-quarter in good sunlight is never 'art'
