            • Larry, Phillip, Rick, Jerry, Michael,and Larry C. THANX so much for the comments. I have some other shots that I feel like came out rather well and was thinking of posting them. I sometimes think that ya'll might get a little tired of seeing the 'same old locations' on the RR, but I haven't gotten around to having anything else worth showing, 'cause I'm terrible at shooting something while I build it (I always forget). Anyways here are some shots of the backdrop blend from a couple of different locations and angles; also some shots of the sun getting low on the horizon (as by the lighting) in Ft. Compton. I did include a shot of Dilapidated that came out rather well I think. Sooooooooo here we go ...comments always welcome and needed.

                        • Thanx guys; I'm gonna start work on the "LITTLE BAND RIVER" rapids area, I'm gonna try to blend the background into the bridge scene. I think I'll try using some blue shop towels and shade them with pastels to get a better blend. I think this will let me see just how much area should or should not be 'water'. I'll also be able to determine how many rocks and where to place them. Once all that's done I'll do a traditional water/rapids scene using the usual types of 'water' products over my riverbed/rocky rapids area.

                          first lets look at before.... Click image for larger version  Name:	001.jpg Views:	0 Size:	159.6 KB ID:	968473

                              • If you look closely at the left hand side of this shot you can see the absence of any background/foreground blending; not so on the righthand side of the shot. One can actually see the seam along the intersection of the backdrop and the base of the scene. Click image for larger version  Name:	021.jpg Views:	0 Size:	167.0 KB ID:	968487
