In a "steam-punk", Jules Verne-like environment, a massive flying ship awaits departure in a futuristic Victorian train station (inspired by the museum of D'Orsay in Paris).

c'est une image absolument splendide ^^. Une petite question il me semble l'avoir vu aux imaginales il y a quelques années me tromperais-je? ou a tu exposé là bas?

Non, elle n'etait pas aux imaginales, mais j'avais effectivement une expo de reproductions sur metal la-bas.

I love the golden color and all the details. Did you know that the Musee d'Orsay really is a former train station?

I'm not that into steam-punk or Jules Verne but there is just something about this I love. I think it's the colors a composition combined with the massive scale.

A wonderful counter balance of culture and technology. Early industrial society conveyed against technology yet to exist.

A totally delicious integration of an art-deco "streamline" locomotive nose --with 70s-era intestinal-style underparts-- into a gigantic Beaux Arts environment.
With a seeming French-style nature scene out back to top it off.
Bonus points for the pallet on the machine and clever shadow work as well.

Gorgeous, I can see the Orsay inspiration. Will there be a painting of a flying ship in that background we can just about see as well perhaps

I think my favourite thing about this is the morning light streaming through the top of the station. It has that awesome early-morning travel feel to it, which is always kind of exhilarating.
