Played with some of the effects. NS 999 conquers the Horseshoe Curve and its 1.5% grade. ( Also, NS 999 is the only battery powered locomotive owned by Norfolk Southern. The battery powered loco. was the result of NS wanting less emmisions from its locomotives, so they transformed an old GP38 into a battery powered locomotive.)

A few days before Christmas, 1948, the PRR's train number 79, the crack Golden Arrow charges through a heavy snowstorm. The weather may be bad, the snow may be piling up, and the temperature may be falling, but nevertheless, the good men and women of the Pennsylvania Railroad ensure that the train gets over the road safely. Inside their berths or sitting in their coach seats, the passengers comfortably rest, soon to awaken in Chicago the next morning.

Really? Black Swans, normhart? I don't know. By the way,
your entry is fantastic, but, I'm not crazy about your entire desktop
being a part of it. Just my opinion, though.

I believe black swans originate from Australia but could be wrong. We have quite a lot of them here in the UK.

Of course. now I see them. Thanks, AHrian7. You have been honest all along. Congratulations on another work of art.

Is good to ask a question if unsure or querying something. If I tried to do something dishonest it would come back and bite me in the place where the sun does not shine - it is called karma :)

With the recent winter weather we have had here in California this seemed appropriate.

Here's my vote. I know that voting has not yet been formally announced, but I won't be around for a while after today and since the deadline for entries has passed I thought I'd put mine in because of one stunning shot which impressed greatly.


pm372




Nice subtle colours.
Great fog effects.
Superb deployment of gradient with natural varied rise in track from distant to near view (no fixed incline!).
Realistic looking trees (no lighting problems on billboard faces), and no obvious repeats.
Great use of bush and trackside grass & weeds.
Distant trackside signal hardware and poles merging softly into the mist.
Weathered tanker wagons are nicely varied.
Believable looking driver.
Landscape to the sides of the track are subtly created with gentle shallow embankments; no flat or over-exaggerated terrain.
Understated sky fits really well with the lighting conditions.

Great job! :Y:
