Hello everyone!

I recently finished this scene and would like to get your comments.

Done with Max5, Photoshop7, rendered with Max advanced lighting.

I agree. Harsher shadows, especially under the engine. But that's amazing. the tracks look photoreal.

Amazing. It's almost photorealistic O_o

brings me back to the days when i would hope a freight train to town to go steal andy.... haha kidding...

I like it alot.... i will crit this later.. all i can see.. is its a lil to boxy... but i am probably mistaking that for the newer ones... and not trying to remember the old ones... yaya what would i know about trains... refer to where i am from... Pgh is a.... or was a big steel capital... even to this day people dont come here because of the evil dark cloud... anyway it does look good...

good detail :applause:

Very cool. I love the image. I don't think that the shadows should be much harsher, because it is such a cloudy overcast day. I would like to see more color. Right now it is so desaturated that it looks almost Black and White. Maybe some color in the dirt, and the color of the train and boxcar. Overall a great image.

I have seen trains in the railyard on a cloudy day and your image returns that thought to me in a snap. Great job and a lot of dedication to detail. Very well done.

Very tight modelling job. The immediate thing that my eye was drawn to was your low anti-aliasing settings, and the resultant jaggies. Really bump that sucker up and kill your render time, the result will be much better. If you tossed a very slight blur on it in post it would clean that up a touch as well.
Right now it feel as if there is a sharpen mask on it. I did a test with a gaussian blur of 0.3 pixels and it made a world of difference.

nicely done!

I would add a little bit more shadow under the train.

Looks like it could be a postcard or something. Great details!
I like your style! :buttrock:
