    Default Sepia for Tegan

    I am calling this "Consultation" because this scenic steam engine rail road ride had a break midway on the trip...the brakemen approached the conductor to have a mid trip consultation.

    I like these shots tomorrowstreasures

    shot 1 - I like the sepia colour in this shot and feel it adds to the mood. I'm not convinced the shot needs the coloured hats. I think I see why you did it (modern man colour - old train monotone) but I'd love to see them without the hats to compare. I bet the shot stands on its own quite well as is shown by the other shot. Either way, the red border does seem to work with the hats. Even though many people feel it's a dated techinique, I love handpainting (actually painting on a print) and computer handpainting (selectively colouring portions in a computer image). Something seems to draw me to these images so I'm glad to see you trying it out.

    Shot 2 - I'm not exactly sure what time machine refers to?
    Either way - I like this version as well, I prefer it to shot 1. I like the muted tones a wee bit of brown colour. I might play with lightening the face of the guy in the train by maybe 5-10%. Aside from that I dig it. Borders too.

    Hope that helps,

    Agree with marko - great shots. That's Mayo #3, right?

    Marko-



    The time machine was in reference to the filter i used on pspx2
    I love trying new techniques - I am not so sure I like the hats colored either. The brush I used was a water color brush, I wanted to be able to see the shading beneath the paint, but, the paint went on vivid and not in the muted tones that i loaded...again, an experiment.
    The 2nd one i like better too. I agree that his face needs lightening up.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to give your opinion!

    There is no Cass #11 AFAIK...

    Edit: Yup, a quick check of their 'site reveals Shays 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Very hard to tell from the cab only, but that looks like an 80 ton; could it be #7?

    Okay, got it now. Took a little digging; they've renumbered their 90 ton, formerly Feather River #3. Wasn't doubting you; just didn't make sense based on what I knew.

    Thanks - and if you've got any more Cass images, I'd love to see them (or any railroad images at all for that matter)
