    QUOTE=marko;4454]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,

    Now we are getting into personal taste.

    Just so it's clear I'm referring to the last post # 11

    I prefer the first shot. The only thing I like better in that second shot is the lightening of the driver's face. I realize that I'm bucking the whole wide range of tones dogma - but some shots can occasionally break the rules. Given the unconventional nature of the shot I feel the rules can be broken here.

    For me, the first shot has a much more interesting 'mood' due to its darker tones....but we are getting into personal tastes here. Also shot 2 has many funky 'artifacts' and coloured shadings that detract from the image and its mood.

    hope that helps,

    Hi! First time I have had a title named after me.

    The first shot is much better than the second in bringing out the shapes and details in the structure of the train. Some selective work with the brightening brush in PaintShop Pro or dodging in Photoshop, I would recommend, particularly toward the bottom of the train.

    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)

    The top one for me... I like extremes on either end... either extreme contrast or no contrast.... I don't like to sit on the fence.

    I just looked over all of them. I can't decide which one I favor. I like them all for different reasons and do not feel comfortable saying which one fits well technically. sigh.
