Kumar,

Every detail you add enhances your diorama terrifically. The scree provides some great texture and the fences emphasize the road and slope.

Hi Kumar,

I really like the look of the scene, and especially how the leading lines of the both road, and fence draw the viewer into the scene. I do wonder if you should add a well placed tree that hides where the track meets the backdrop thou.

Take care,
Rob.

I think I agree with Rob. You need something to suggest that the track doesn't just end at the hill. The level of realism in your scene is excellent!
Cheers,
Dave

Good catch. I'll add a tree or bush over in the corner tonight.



Thanks all!

Hi Kumar,

That does make a subtle difference. I think it was the leading line of the fence that was drawing my eye towards where the track meets the backdrop. The scene looks fantastic.

Take care,
Rob.

Kumar,

The tree helps a lot and I think Rob has nailed the reason why. I also suspect the bright red door pulls the eye toward that boxcar.

Mike

Is Michael hinting the door should be tamed down a bit? Better him than me.

No, that was not my intention at all. In fact, one could view that spot of color as providing a focus to the scene that satisfies the "rule of thirds" for picture composition.

Michael, I know your answer would be intelligent, and educational at the same time.
Now I'm digging the red.

Thanks all.

Over the coming months a whole range of rolling stock is going to appear on the bridge. It's going to be interesting to see how the different colors affect the whole scene - the Soo Line red in particular. In this instance the red helps balance the scene as it softens the effect of the green and draws the eye towards it.

kumard I would lose the Soo line boxcar. That red door hogs your eyes and it's hard too notice all the outstanding modeling you have done in the other 99.99 percent of the diorama.
