Thanks for the input guys. Ed I agree with you in that the longer I look at a picture the better the modeling must be which is why with some of the talent on this forum I can spend hours checking one thread! There is some green/blue coloring right along the edges. I was hoping to go for the vegetation reflecting in the water look. Think I should redo it?

No no no, don't redo it Mike!

If you're pleased, that's all that matters.

I shall curse my monitor forthwith.

Thanks Frank! Carl I'm not entirely happy with it so I will be adding some blue to tone down the green some.

Mike, I had a feeling you would. One simple reason. You care and you want it right. Very refreshing I might add. If you left it, still very good. But you are aiming for superb.
We all should do that. I look forward to seeing the change.

Mike I actually like the greener tint to the water'..Now it looks bluer. Both are, were excellent! It is a terrific scene, and it does require a lengthy study to absorb it all in'. I have used food color on wood with nice results. It appears that it is also good for water effects as well. Beautiful scenery'... Outstanding modeling'..

Thanks Ted, the green looked better in the pics than in person. Also none of the rivers around here have a green tint due to the acidity I think.

Mike I just went back to March where you started the scene, I like the way you put it together, I often over think my scenes.
What is the brand name of the bridge abutments? I'm going to need a wack of them on this new layout, like my bridges
For the water I would suggest throwing in a few rocks and dried out sticks for logs , it will help break up the water flow. I'm not sure how you made out with the modge podge ,last year Doug Coffey and I were doing experiments with it and found it was leaving bubbles in the finish, apparently even Dave Frary was getting the same results. I've found I liked the results using the Acrylic Gel Mediums give for a textured look but for smooth as glass you can't beat envirotex colored and a painted bottom. Nice thing about water is you can keep adding layers until your happy.
