The landscape elements are excellent! And I am a big fan of trains running thru beautiful panoramas, and this is a lovely scene. I agree that the blur belongs, however it's the color values of the train that seem a bit overpowering. 'Greying' out the values would help the train to sit a bit more into the landscape imo. Some weathering and grunge in the textures would be great, but probably not necessary at the distance.  All that aside, I really like the image.

Thank you zaxxon. I will play a bit with the colors of the train.

Lovely train scene and if it were fresh out of the station on it's way across N America but in VIA Rail colours it could be in Canada. Maybe a bit of grey in the colour channel would desaturate the seemingly over bright colour.

Yes, I think perhaps reducing saturation of the train colors would help make it look more natural in the environment. Also if there is no specular on it already, it might help to add some subtle, diffuse specular.

If that is the object I remember....good luck with that. I think it looks great! The passenger trains I am familiar with were actually kept quite well maintained, agreeing with bobbystahr here.  A little specular might help. :)

Vegetation quite impressive.

I really like this render! Veggies and train very well fit together.

The train looks so much better with the blur reduction, really feel emersed now. Great work! Still so amazed by people's work here. :O
