I like the softness around the edges and the sharpness in the center. Great work, as usual.

Hi Carletta
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Just a post note. At midnight all the tiny figures come to life and run the trains. OR maybe it is the cat making her nightly rounds. She loves walking on the layout.LOL
