    • Kyle that looks amazing; you're very good at background/foreground blending. Keep up the great work.

              • Larry C, George, Rick, Mike and Jerry; Thanx to all of you for your very kind words and encouragement; ya'll all know how daunting it can be to try something you've not done before. This background is only my second one, and this is my first attempt at trying to blend foreground and backdrop in a water scene, and it is turning out to be quite the experience. I also decided to photograph the whole thing as I go along. So, now that I've determined how far up on the backdrop I should go with the actual blend, and about how wide the river will be and where the rocks and outcroppings will be, I stopped and took some shots to document said endeavors.
                Although the pictures and blending efforts of the other day showed good promise, the real success was in determining how and where to blend the backdrop water and the 'real' water when it comes down to color and over all appearance and how much area I will need to make it all come out right. So now without further delay here are the shots so far.......

                Thoughts are always welcome

                • Nice progress. I like the bridge.

                  • Thanx BL, I hope the next shots won't sway your affection towards the bridge ('cause I modified it as per the plan for the scene.....OOPS) I needed to re-position the support piers, and so this is what I came up with so far. I'm going to add 2 more sets of diagonal supports, one on each side of the bridge bents facing opposite the existing ones. Also, sorry about the WHITE styrofoam 'rock outcropping' on the left; but I needed to see if there would be enough room for a small dirt road/trail on top of it that leads over to the JARVIS FLATS fishing area further to the left and not shown (I don't think) in these shots. Whadda ya think??????????

                    • I think all your effort in tying hey the backdrop to the foreground are paying off.
                      I like the bridge too.

                      • Thanx guys; First a little more (hardly noticeable) coloring of the river in certain spots that Mark (my co-hort) felt like had too much brown. Next I cut and added the other diagonal supports to the bridge, and placed it back where it will be; for the sake of my own viewing and a few camera shots and also not having it laying around waiting to be damaged until I get to the next step sometime later this week.

                            • Thanx so much fellas. My next step will be to form the area that will be the river bed and banks and the surrounding terrain. In the mean time here's a shot of the freight yard and std. gauge interchange at Blackrock, taken yesterday by my worthy assistant Mark.
