How realistic are your models? Photo challenge.

Just pressing ‘craftsmanship/clever’ doesn’t do this justice. Really very good indeed.

What a stunning picture!

The colour and weathering are spot on as is the track and ballast and the firemans face is so clearly defined that I thought I recognised him!

Enough to make me change to S7..

A photo I took of Plumpton Green at the Bluebell Railway on Sunday. By far one of the best layouts I've ever seen. I don't often see Sussex layouts at exhibitions. Very inspiring stuff! I could have watched it all day.

A photo I took of my layout yesterday, in a rather lower league. :p H Class with Birdcage set and A1x with parcels in vent & passenger luggage vans.

We used to soak the photos in sodium sulphide solution to get the sepia finish. But, you have to be careful how long they are soaking.

The ageing process is addictive, so, with apologies to Tricky, Kevin-KNP and Green Giraffe ....

The difficulty is finding shots taken from a low enough viewpoint to look realistic.  A survey of my own exhibition snaps reveals that I have consistently failed to take such pictures.

 

I wanted to see some shots of MrKirtley800's Kirkby Malham duly 'aged', so conducted a brief smash and grab raid to copy some of his pictures, so, again, I apologise for pilfering from others' posts ...

Coal activity in the main yard - the goods in the background hasn't left yet.....

All quiet on the Forfar line in a low sun.

A few of my layout. 

Not the best but I'm sure they're not the worst either. 

IMG_20190710_150449.png.fa063556440ae2a8052c807aa99ef7ea.png

Firstly, a GWR 2-8-0 prepares to depart Ashcombe, with the driver at the ready on the whistle.

A peaceful afternoon by a small foot crossing.

Cattle in the lineside fields settle down for the night in the long summer grass.

A night time shot of the evening dining service ready to depart.

Another black and white photograph, this time we see a Parkside Beetle prize cattle van.

And finally, my attempt at an ivy covered telegraph pole. It still needs some improvement but looks OK. 

 

I must say, some of the other photos here on this forum are absolutely amazing!

Cattle lying down is supposed to be a sign of impending rain, isn’t it, or is that horses?

 

These are definitely not the worst, and better than some of mine!
