April, Thanks for the comments. I did this with about 5 layers. Train picture was taken at the ILL Rail Road Museum in Union IL.

Larry, I have an old Lionel train and one of these day I too will set it up and play with it. It has been 45+ years since I last turned it on. Wonder if it will still work?

Great effects, you could make it a little more fuzzy below the three big wheels in the front.

thanks everyone.

This was truely a surprise to get "POTD"

I have to be honest with you all. At first I had no idea what "POTD" was.

I had to look it up to find out what it was all about. Jut a dumb old former football player who now is into art and photography. Who would have every espected that from me!

You should have seen the orginal picture. I may do a "before and after image" amd put it out on Better Photl

Believe me this enhance image is much nicer that the orginal.

I was trying to see if I could master and enhance this image with Photoshop.

It was a lot of trial and error with layers. Cut parts out work in them and paste the layers back on top.

Again, thanks for you nice comments.

Beautifulo Tom. Perhaps maybe blur the rails under the wheels and remove the block on the rail behind the front driving wheel.

I am wondering if this picture has fake motion. The bluring may have been done in photoshop. The train . .wheels are not turning. Karen
