I can assure you it was the hardest task of all to get that 1metre long train in the same photo with the ten Seesoldaten. There was no way displaying it completely without either have to use magnifiers for the soldiers or get parts of the trian off focus. Meh...

That is a wonderful-looking train Michi, and a brilliant use of perspective  :-*

(I couldn't figure out how to get the view along the railway line in my Round 10 entry... Tried it - couldn't get it to work...  ::)  Kudos to you for achieving such a difficult composition)

And now...over to the other side.  Is that E.T. The Extraterristrial masquerading as an Egyptian mummy in the red?  Lovely bit of movie making work there.

 :-* nice train Michi - another masterpiece to add to your long display cabinets. :D


And the snakes escaping their box always makes me chuckle. Nice scatter!

Cheers
