    Great shots, Blazin! I particularly like the first, with the mountain shadows.
    Did you stage the CP one? It's a neat idea but I think it could use a different weather (sky, light) to really work. The bottom quarter is great on its own, seriously. Not much can be done with the subject's perspective.

    Thanks! :D. Also the Canadian Pacific screenshot is not staged, it was coincidental. I just ran under that bridge in a scenario on the route and I had no idea it was coming so I just went out in free roam, paused and took a screenshot. And at the time I took that screenshot I didn't know how to apply Armstrong Powerhouse Weather Pack to routes so it just has default sky, and since like I said it was a scenario so I couldn't change the weather so not much I could've done about that.

    Well done. It was an equal favourite of mine as well. Glad I wasn't judging.

    I suspect Blazin isn't going to be around to pick a new subject by 5pm.

    With time zone differences, work commitments etc. we is pretty flexible. If it runs a bit late then so be it.
    That is one of the reasons why I love this thread, it is just a bit of fun and pretty well laid back. We have a great core of folks that contribute and we all work around one another. I originally thought this thread might last for a couple of months and die. but here we are, Year 2, week 17 / 18 and still going. I raise a glass to "Long may we continue" :cool:
