There you go see - keep everyone shut in to the Southern Region boundaries and they won't know there anything better "out there".

Nowadays, they call it brain-washing ............ :mutley :cheers 


p.s.  Those Merchant Navies and the "spam cans" might just be acceptable to the LNER....... ;-)

Well, the LNER did have plenty of experience in bad engineering design and retrospectively addressing fundamental mistakes. Big ends, valve gear, marine boilers come immediately to mind. 

Not that the GWR was immune from the bad designs of some of their early chief engineers. Luckily they made very few mistakes post-Dean. Must have been the clear air in the south.

Now now, no squabbling at the back there.  We will all agree that all regions are equal.   It's just that Southern is more equal than the others.

I agree, being just beautiful does not beat being "beautiful  & utilitarian"
now back to my Irish diesels .....

I haven't had much time in the loft as there are "more important" jobs to be done, apparently.  However I did get to make and fix some detailing and figures to the quay.  The fishermen are back as dawn breaks with the first catch of the day and enjoying a well earned brew and discussion before heading off again, this time to set some lobster traps...

That scene is made more spectacular by the dawn sky.

I agree, the sky adds to it! Your photoshop skills are improving. 
At first I thought you’d secretly poured the resin… the seabed is pretty convincing as it is (or at least on that photo!).

Lovely picture Michael, to enhance it more, the sky works well but the gaps between the leaves in the distant trees show the original blue sky, if you create another layer and colour it the same as the pink sky, put this layer under your main layer, then, if you use a magic wand tool on the blue areas and cut, the pink will show through, alternatively, sample that pink, then with the brush tool paint over the blue areas.
Here's a quick adjustment but it could be perfect given more time.

I hope this helps?

That's a fabulous shot Michael - it really could be real - love the weed on the harbour wall and the silt base. 

Very well done Sir !!!  :cheers

Hi all, and thank you very much.  I am still learning the software, I only noticed the blue of the trees when I posted it here, but thankyou for the advice Phil.  I had a play but not sure I have got it exactly. But it's a little better.  When it is a blue sky, the blue in the trees doesn't really show up.



Although I do have access to photoshop at school, the software I use at home is free open source, called photofiltre 7.  I think someone on here recommended it once.  It is pretty similar to photoshop, probably not as powerful, but more than enough for my small brain.  I know there are other open source programs but they were too much for me, to much of a steep learning curve for what I need.

Michael

Much better, if you blow the image up and reduce the size of the tool, you get smaller areas through the leaves.

Michael, I've just had a go at your flowers, made by freezing a crayon and rubbing on sandpaper, I think that's what you did? Well, the crayon just stuck to the sandpaper?

Hi Phil
I'm fairly sure I scraped the crayons with a knife and then chopped them into smaller pieces.  I'm sorry if I said, or gave the impression, that I sanded them.  As an experiment, I also tried using a grater, but still needed the blade to chop them into finer pieces.  

Out of interest, I also tried the salt method, but my salt didn't really take the colour.  Once I ground it,  it tended to be more salt like than colourful like yours.  Perhaps it was my impatience and I needed to wait longer in the colouring and subsequent grinding stages.

Nowadays I use my own coloured flock, made from sponge intended for seating, or fine coloured powder if I need it to be very small.

Michael

Lovely looking scene Michael - the fish market reminds me of the oyster sheds in Cap Ferret near Arcachon here on the coast.  Beautifully executed Sir !   :pathead


Sorry Peter, I missed this post.  Thank you, it is coming along and starting to take shape.  

The fish market is based on the actual buildings at the quay, which have been repurposed as restaurants or boutique shops in real life, but were almost certainly once the oyster sheds (and shrimp was a popular catch back in the day).  I find it interesting that they are similar to the French ones.  

They even predate the oysters though, and there is evidence that they were corn and barley stores, although the history gets a bit sketchy further back in time.  As they are listed buildings it means that modern users cannot really do much with them, which has meant some much needed investment in the town has been lost from enterprises which wanted to reconfigure the insides.  I am all for protecting our buildings, but I'm not sure it should be at any cost.  I mentioned I was involved in a restoration project and we wanted to make it a very green development - very energy efficient - and we were thwarted at every stage by the planning processes.  Seems a bit daft to me.  If water levels rise due to climate change, half the town, including the protected buildings, will be gone!

Michael
