Ticket To Ride

<- Click here
So it seems that my litte ride over to Strasburg last weekend resulted in a some posts here and visits to my website, where they're saved under the "Lancaster County" tab.
Which got me to wondering what sort of poster a gallery about that visit ought to look like. Since I don't do that kind of graphic art, but really admire artists who do, I thought I'd give it a try... To create an introductory image that would both identify the collection while encouraging visitors to explore them.
How's this work?

That's a great poster Ted. It certainly works for me. I found the white print on the wheels in the foreground distracting though and would probably have cloned it out.

Thanks for the viewpoint Bill. Hmmmm... Maybe it's not a good reason, but I did consider cloning away those numerals. Then I thought that I wanted this thing to look reeeeeely authentic. You know how a magician tries to distract with his free hand while the other one's slipping a rabbit in the hat? Well I wanted just the slighest distraction from some of the enhancements I did that weren't authentic. I mean hey, "If the guy was stupid enuf to leave in the numbers, hell... everything else's gotta be real, no?"
