Default Incredibly Life-Like HO Layout

This is just... incredible. Especially the lighting. I thought that everyone may enjoy looking through this guy's photo-stream.

You can tell on a lot of them, especially all the ones with water in them. But they did a good job.

Its incredibly realistic and surreal at the same time, the backdrops dont seem to be intended to be photorealistic but he did a very good job matching the backdrop colors to those used on the layout, giving the whole thing a very painterly appearance. Alot of the shots look like the whole thing is a painting. Very cool!

Pretty nice, indeed. Tom Johnson's INRAIL is a lot more impressive, though.

Ok.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
