    I agree totally, especially about the backdrops. The image blending really adds to the pics. Excelent work. I would love to get mine to look like yours in real life. :thumb: :thumb:

    I join the ranks of the happy onlookers!

    Great layout, very natural looking scenery, beautifully blended background, fine weathering, beautiful scenic details (I love that abandoned spur! :thumb: ) and very good photographs - thanks for sharing these pics with us!

    So do I. ;)

    The big challenge on my future layout will be to figure out a way to make my real backdrops look as nice as the ones I Photoshopped. I'll have a few years to figure that one out, and perhaps advances in technology will ultimately provide a solution by then.

    The photoshop backdrops are nice, but I'm really impressed with your modeled scenery!
    That pond is especially impressive! Very realistic! :thumb:

    I agree. The water is really well done. Coloring and waves (ripples?) are very realistic. :thumb: :thumb:
