You're right Phil - the backscene makes a huge difference.

The layout was fantastic BEFORE you added the backscene - now you've taken it into a whole new dimension.

This picture is a stunner.  The white house, caught by the sunlight, stands out beautifully from the dark hill where presumably, a storm is brewing.  How many times has a scene like this been used in "art books" to define contrast.  An iconic scene brilliantly captured. :cheers:cheers:cheers

I think most of us can simply ditch our efforts and watch the likes of you whilst we imagine it's us doing it .............:roll::roll::roll:

Forgot to ask - what are the backscenes ?

Thank you Peter, appreciated!

The backscenes are ID, they are excellent, they come as two 5' lengths per scene, it's possible to much up some of them to make a long scene, they're on thick paper too IMO well worth the price.

They are indeed very good backgrounds, perfectly matched by a very natural looking foreground. Great modelling and photography Phil. As a matter of interest are the backgrounds permanently installed. Or have I missed something somewhere.

They are now permanently installed Robert, I wish though that they were available before the scenery was started, but I am talking about a long time ago!

Once again, great pics !

For those looking for ID backscenes, here is where I bought mine from : http://pufferwillies.co.uk/uk2ecommerce/department/i_d_backscenes/

As Phil said, they are well worth the price.

Cheers, Gary.

The first two pictures were taken with natural light which is the best, this was from roof windows, the rest were with two 500w photo floods placed together.

Fantastic modelling Gary.   Are you using the 9" or 15" backscenes?

What can anyone do but admire Phil. Stunning, absolutely, especially the black and white picture.

Wow Phil. :shock::shock::shock:

As Bob says, absolutely stunning.  They really could be shots of the real thing.  You must be chuffed to bits with them. :pathead:pathead

Where did you get the smoke on the Prairie (?) in the last B/W shot ?  I'm not usually a huge fan of "shopped" photos but that one looks extremely realistic.

Thanks Robert and Peter.

 

Peter the smoke came from a 4MT in "Heritage Railways of the British Isles" but I would have used whatever looked good. There was'nt a lot of time spent on PSing that picture, I admit it could be better but again, everything takes time :roll:

It always amazes me the difference between viewing from a standing position and ground level, from almost toy-like to realistic.

Here's the original.

 

Phil

Thanks Ray, for the very nice comments. There is still a lot to do with this layout, the station for example, at the moment only the platforms exist, I haven't even thought about what buildings to create.

There are also a few area's that could be added to, to the right of this picture for one. This was a quick snap with a pocket camera so the depth of field is not as it should be.

 

Phil

I'd say everything to the right of that shot is perfect Phil - I'd be chuffed to bits if it were a part of my layout.

If it needs "seeing to" it will be really interesting to see what you add.  The difference between an ordinary guy and a Master eh !!!!

Actually Peter, it's the area behind the storage building which is on the right, I don't have a picture of this part but you can see it from my layout plan.
