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? #1985552

Great effects, you could make it a little more fuzzy below the three big wheels in the front. #2164976

Tom J. Hughes 12/8/2005 7:26:13 AM

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.

I am wondering if this picture has fake motion. The bluring may have been done in photoshop. The train . .wheels are not turning. Karen #7540390
