More miniature trains
 
A couple from my HO scale layout which is still a work in process.

jelpee,

I like the prospective of the shot, but the White Balance seems off to me. It seems a bit to yellow to me.

Shoturtle: 100% agree with the poor WB. I tried a little more PP on #1...look better? I seem to have lost some detail though.

On #2 I recall using a flash light to try to illuminate the area under the roof of the railroad depot on #2. I'm sure the camera went nuts trying to figure out an optimal WB between a tungsten based flash light and the fluorescent overhead lights :D. Also these were taken a couple of years ago with my Pentax *istDL-an entry level model which was performed well on "average" lighting conditions.

Now that I am shooting with a D300s, I should retake some images and also shoot in RAW for more control of the WB. I also have recently gotten myself a WB calibration disc which I think will help. I also need to get a lens with a short focusing distance to get in close.

Very nice shots. Look quite realistic.
