Pretty good job. How about some blur on the train if it's moving? :) Unless you want it clearly visible which, I guess, you are after.

Thx Kadri. :)

Really wondering if you would even see a motion blur on a train with modern cameras. I've taken lots of train pics at Picnic Point here in WA of the Santa Fe, and never have seen a motion blur. They don't move nearly fast enough.

The foliage all looks really good, but kinda noticing a similar green pallette in some of the same vegetation. Maybe a PF to kill some of it with browns?

Great. But maybe I would like it better without the blur. Veggies are terrific.

Thanks guys! I looked up some pictures and the motion blur will have to go. If the camera would be focusing on something close by then a little motion blur would be okay but in this case no.

Great! And I like the blur. There's one thing that could be improved to my taste: if you'd add a very thin localised (V2-) cloud layer, there'd be some haze to add a bit more depth.

Thx Hannes. Yes I am also thinking about the clouds. I will see this option.

Nice! Ok, so the engine could be old and grimed up and I guess the cars, too - to a degree - but some reflection on the metal would probably look good.

Thx Otakar and Bobby. Rendering a version now with some clouds. Technically the cars are already dirty but I can give a bit more. The engine definitely will need more...hehe...
I was fixing these engines before. This model got about 5000Hp. One of my favorite engines all the times.

Great! I may have been a bit vague when I mentioned the thin cloud layer. I sometimes use such a cloud layer (on the ground), often without any density shader just to put the distance into a haze to get more depth. When I try this with the actual haze in the atmosphere tab, it sometimes affects the whole scene too much.

Ohh....  :-\
I made one with clouds...
But I don't liked it so I nuked the clouds...

Anyways here is an update. Will try the other clouds after.

I think your picture is really better with blur on the train. Maybe you can try blur on all the scene without the train.
