Hello David,
I took a ride on this cliff railway on a short visit to Bridgnorth in 1966. It was a short but nice ride and this photo is a fine combination of old style "train" and old style building. I noted in my diary (I just checked it up) that I enjoyed Bridgnorth but found nearby Ludlow even nicer.
Best regards,

Talking To jemaflor: Holy..crop!

For this shot to look like that I cheated like a dog : in fact this is NOT a vertical shot.. it is in fact a horizontal "bad shot" that showed some dirty apartment blocks to the left and a badly graffiti mangled marble bench and a terrace to the right. And I cropped those useless pieces. Why did I say cheated? Well- the 3500 pixel limit here on TE.. I did not resize this image, I just cropped it from full resolution. Gotta love when you have a lot of resolution- you get to do these kinds of (dirty) stuff. Now my secret's out, I am ashamed! :P.
Yes, it also involves the polarizer and the "fine details" mode on the camera but the crux of the matter is the crop-to-resize technique. Does not always work- depends on the image of course- and does translate badly when resize is still needed after the crop, the virtual resolution goes to hell in a hand-basket like that and the result is drab. But like this- crop, don't resize- and you will enjoy out-of-camera good sharpness, not AI "enhanced" or other digital wizardry from a common image manipulation app. Hope that's informative.. All the best,
