While DP. platform  1., is on the (occasional). dining table, I decided, to give the trusses and upright's a lighter shade of blue,instead of dark grey.

Later,in a few day's. the platform fronts,will be lightened,from a dark brown.

Ah now that's better, you are getting to the juicy pictures.

Quality even if not quantity, love the pictures. can you get a through the (looking glass) tunnel view?

Plus I think a very light touch of black weathering for shadow in the bushes will help give it a bit of oomph for the photographs. Lovely work.

Have you ever notice greenery always has blackery..........for the deeper shadowed parts.

It is amazing how with the almost black background how much more realistic the bushes look.

The greenery is looking really good.

 

N.B. 26 and 27 look to be the same picture.

I think I have sent you this link before, most of the product's John supplies,are really effective.(just practice,like all things).

Best to drop John,an email,for best time to ring,have a chat,as to want you want to do, really nice chap.

Better still,save your Saturday pocket money,(Swedish Knoner).

See his products @ Newark, Exhibition,21/22.Sept.

No doubt, Kal,will be saving his,to spend on Richards' (Dcc Concepts.) new product.

Will be good to catch up with Richard again,after last year.
