We often see unbelievable rock colours on layouts.

Had to take a pic of these rocks at Colwyn Bay.
The green of the algae makes them unbelievable for a layout!

Why do they look so natural in nature, but stick out like a sore thumb on a layout?

Probably has something to to do with selective compression?

Jus' finkin'...do we accept it unconditionally in real life? After all, your subconcious remarked upon it sufficiently to prompt the taking of the photograph?

As for whether or not we'd accept it  on a layout, perhaps it is the absence of the surrounding stimulii such as  the smell, breeze, temperature, humidity, sound of sea-gulls et cetera that makes it unbelievable?

Thanks for posting it and starting a train of thought in what passes for my conciousness!

 

Doug

Just like telephone poles, they can be on a slant in real life but look out of place on a layout!
Or we build trees of more correct size & they tower over the layout - is that because of our "helicopter" view?

I think Doug has it - out of context, it looks very odd.  However, if it were Blackpool rock ..............:roll::roll:
