    Galt: I do see what you mean now. It appears the backdrop is running up hill :D What the heck.... I can probably get that fixed with your suggestion. However, on a different perspective (no pun intended -- yeah right) if you cup both hands together to form a tube it appears a little 3-D. The airship is kind of jumping out the picture. :D

    Thanks for the suggestions. I probably try another shoot this weekend.

    This brings an interesting fact. We should start a thread on Photo taking tips and tricks. Anyone else have thoughts on this? Get a photographer as a moderator. :wave:

    Train & Bus

    The 'Golden Pass Express' train is just drifting into the station, while a bus is waiting to take the skiers from the station up to the the Cross-country ski Center near the town of Zweisimmen (Bernese Oberland, Switzerland).

    Hehe, sometimes it pays to be in the holidays at the right time! :thumb: :D

    planes, trains and...steam tugs

    hello everyone, here is a scene from the piers of Baltimore. I am not sure if it qualifies as an entry because I did add water in Photoshop, as well as steam from the tug. I also added an exhaust plume in the sky from a passing overhead jet airplane. With the exception of the water, this is otherwise a shot from my layout.

    Sorry to take so long to get back. Going back, someone asked how a tank got to portola. Well I didn't have an answer good enough to tell so I did some digging. The only problem is I asked 5 people and got about 8 different answers...my kind of luck. The best couple were, "I don't know but there used to be two of them", "some kids were vandalizing the museum so necessary steps were taken" and lastly "storing them for the national guard" From what I remember overhearing the last one is probably the most correct. They may or may not be still national guard tanks, it would make sense to have them stored there because there isnt anywhere else up there to store them, however doesnt seem very smart to do that either. They very well could have been donated in which case they are for sale in order to raise funds for other projects(need a tank anyone?) Basically at the end of my search, I still don't know for sure...Sorry!@

    Here's one I took way back when I was a young lad, back when my family still lived up in Canada. Not buying that? OK, Steamtown, Vermont, 1980
