    Whenever I get a picture that I like, I install it as wallpaper so I can look it over for awhile to see what can be done to improve it. This picture was one of the first I posted with the digital camera. I made some corrections to the scenery and (hopefully) have gotten a little more experience with the camera. For those that like a "story" to go with the picture (and I'm one of those), this would be the Southern's local out of Bryson City as it clears Big Ridge tunnel on it's way to Tellico Gap.

    Thanks Shamus! But the truth of the matter is a few months ago I doubt I could of pulled off a shot like this one. I have been studying the photo's of the better modelers here and have been impressed by the attention to detail (the devil's in the details you know :D ). Your ground covers for example are some of the best I have ever seen, and the way you blend those tree stumps into the ground is awesome! Anyway I've been working on those details. Everything from how the ground mates with the rocks to how the track looks. To you and all the others here, Thanks for making me a better modeler!!!

    I LOVE this photo, Tyson! :cool:

    And speaking of details... The '1899' in your tunnel, have some history about or is only fortuitous? (I'm just curious :D :eek: :D )

    Thanks Javier, the tunnel portal is a commercial casting and the date was already in there. The area I model did put in tunnnels in that time period and a few did have the dates on em', so I left it rather then plaster over it. Shamus I better not check that out right now, I don't need to get anymore sidetracked (pun intended) from working on the layout. This new camera is so d*mn hard to turn loose of!! :D :D :D

    Yeah, it looked 3-D to me too. I thought it was just my eyes playing tricks on me (happens at my age :D :rolleyes: :p :D ). Nice to know someone else thought so too!
