    I took a generic shot of clean tunnel motors, and added some photoshop magic: heat, sand dust, dirt/grime, weathering, etc.
    What do you think?

    looks great, but the white hoppers are FAR too white, espically when pictured in that dust storm!

    Be careful! You could be running through a quicksand desert! ;)

    Yeah, I don't have any D&RGW Trainworx hoppers, so my BN cars had to be a stand-in...
    I added some grime to the BN cars, but I guess not enough...

    Hi hemi,

    I've noticed your increasing proficiency with a camera! As well as the great prototype shots you track down. Now to work on your manipulation skills. . .

    This one, to me, is a little heavy handed, but then I have only a 500 x 375 image to go by. (I went to the Railimages site but couldn't find a bigger one of this specific shot.) I think it needs a little more transparency in terms of color blending and the dissolution of the edges. Usually for me that means a little more randomness, and a litle freer hand. It's hard to comment further without knowing what software you are using. Photoshop CS has "adjustment layers" that really let me play.
