Re: Quarterly Garden Railway Gallery - June 2019 FINAL REMINDER

A definitely semi-scale BR Standard (on a Bachmann chassis) and GRS coaches
I don't have too much 'railway scenery' so it's got to be one of these really. This bridge has now been replaced (and pictured in the previous gallery).

Re: Loading hoppers for the sand quarry

Those final three photographs of it all in place are terrific. Beautifully realised and convincing as usual. Will you leave them all outside permanently?

(I’m having a go at a first foamboard/plasticard building, scratching my head regarding adhesives... Thank you)

Re: Semi-scale BR: the first train of spring

Thank you all for your kind remarks. Regarding Rik's comment on 'steady camera work': 'The first rule of photography', it has been impatiently explained to me, is 'always use a [expletive deleted] tripod' which I now adhere to religiously. Probably even when I shouldn’t (it’s video and stuff moves)....

Semi-scale BR: the first train of spring

Spring has sprung, the track's been cleaned, the first train let loose. Shortly followed, inevitably, by mobile phone with camera... https://youtu.be/ojlGOevnSiI Nothing new unfortunately – and it doesn't really make all those noises, of course. Audio clips of real Pannier tanks ladled on in the edit.

Thank you. I thought this one was a laugh, that's all. I'll find another picture for the Gallery.

picture_edit_3P_800.jpg Not posed, not a Photoshop composite but reportage – real life, candid photography, as it actually happened! Didn't even stop to square up the computer screen or rearrange the other items more agreeably, as I probably should have done. It’s straightened and cropped - but the...

Re: Peckett Body Build - First Attempt

Wow. I’ve had enough problems attempting some of this stuff in plastic, let alone bleedin’ metalwork. Terrific.

(First kit I attempted was the easy-to-build, GRS plasticard version of a Peckett like this and even that just about drove me insane)

Re: New Photographic Competition

I'm not really fussed, whatever rules you choose to apply: whether 'rigidly restrictive' or 'anything goes' but captioned with the relevant info, as BorisS suggests. I'll have a go anyway. I reckon a more problematic issue is likely to be coming up with appropriate, varied but viable topic suggestio...

Re: New Photographic Competition

Why does the Photoshop ruling "nobble" you? Do we need to rethink this rule? You don't need to rethink this rule. I wasn't being entirely serious: It was sort of, a joke... I've got used to helping pictures along with a bit of Photoshop: spotting, colour balance, darkening the sky, extending backgr...

Good idea. It should generate a load more considered, careful pix of what everyone’s been up to, one would hope. I’ve been nobbled with the Photoshop ruling though...
