Hey Tony,

Both of these recent ones you've posted have been gorgeous. I particularly like the density of foliage in this one. One nitpick, should the smoke effect be going straight up? Or should it be curving backwards?

Thanks. It seems more people like the photo than I do.

Regarding the steam, I was envisioning the locomotive just starting up from a dead stop. Its one ofI the only times a steam engine releases that much visible steam from the cylinders. See this video I took from Railest 2009:

Aha. See, I learned something new there. :) I love all of your scenes set in a totally LEGO setting. Someday the admins should discuss making a castle themed calendar along these lines ....
