Thaqnk you very much Carolyn and Kelly for the sppreciated comments and kind words, my dear friends - your good friend, Allan

Kelly, as the sky was bland and washed out that day, I added in a layer of a clouded sky after deleting the original. Then I put the tracks and trains on another layer, then I used a 'motion blur' in the entire picture, and then brought the new sky layer in behind everything and the 'tracks and trains' layer in front of everything else - Allan #799152

Colleen Braun 9/23/2004 3:10:32 AM
