♫♫ Frank Sinatra - The train ♫♫

Juhlhaus

Train Soul

Fingers on the rails can feel
The pulse of steel and diesel
Engines, the working muscles
And sinews of a continent.
Ten thousand horses throb the air
And bear down on a mile of freight.
It rolls by like thunder
Under a clear blue sky, stirs the soul
With memories of lonely whistles
In the night, a desert wind, mystery lights;
When little fingers at the open window
First felt the pulse of steel and diesel,
A million iron miles ago.

These effects are very cool, picture 6 especially - how are doing it? Very artistic and surreal.

I use Photoshop and a very cool app called Topaz Labs. Thanks dear Radha

Wow, thanks for sharing that. I just did a very quick google on Topaz Labs and found that it uses AI intelligence. I also really enjoy digital art, which is very much the future of art I believe.

Obrigado Zé. Aqui, a ideia foi mesmo transformar algumas das fotos em pintura. Abraço. Então, e as fotos que restaram do Irão?
