The mood and combination of elements work wonderfully for me but I have very strong reservations about the bands. Why why why? I really wanted to give an 8 but those bands. Looks like a TV screen. Is that your point? A reluctant 6.

I started to blow this one off as DNMC, but I kept looking. Well done.

real?

Certainly looks REAL, although I don't know why there is a lamp post out in the middle of nowhere, and in the middle of the path.

I'm guessing photoshop because it feels somewhat disjointed for some reason.

Beautiful photograph either way though. =)

Looks very genuine, but I could be mistaken. If manipulated, you did a great job because I can't see a thing that might be added separately.

effective shot - I'd have to say fake but maybe you're blowing smoke up our ...

Not real. But I like the massive feel you've created on the train.

This is cool and definitely heavily photoshopped. I think the lighting on the track is slightly different. That doesn't seem to be real world shading and light variation on the underside of the train and top side of the track. The track seems to be lit uniformly no matter how far under the body of the train it is. My guess is the "smoke" is some sort of mask. And the lights were added in PP. I'm assuming this is a model train of some kind? Cool shot, nevertheless, and I think it'll be a top finisher.

I'll guess shopped?

The mist looks photoshopped and possibly the lights too. Nice image.

Real.

Ghost train. I love this!!!!

THE train to nowhere. Or nowhere good.

interesting image, looks to me like it's been edited pretty heavily so I'd say fake in terms of fool the viewer. Cool scene though seems like a setting for a horror novel (Stephen King maybe).
