Good work

I don't know if it is just random good selection, or the post-processing, but the last few weeks, I have thought there was a marked improvement in the overall photographic qualities of the Shorpy pictures. This one is particularly good, just the right amount of contrast, perfect tone, nice and clean-looking. I know that photoshop/gimp involves some artistic choice, it was pretty good on average before, but even better of late.
