Speeding Across The Lush Forests of Endor by Walter Boy, on Flickr

Speeding across the lush terrain of Endor, Luke Skywalker attempts to chase down an Imperial Scout Trooper who has become aware of his presence.

Built for the Eurobricks Star Wars Episode VI Community Build. The speederbike designs were inspired by Legohaulic and Larry Lars.

The build is beautiful, and the photography even more so. :wub:

Very nice work here, especially with the landscape, although I'm not too crazy about the figs not "straddling" their bikes. :classic:

Fantastic work indeed! The speeder bikes are great, and so is the vegetation, and especially the tree in the background which gives your creation the last touch of texture it needs. Not to mention the awesome photography. :wub:

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you all enjoyed it. I'd also like to thank Brickdoctor for the blog post! :classic:

I've been getting a lot of comments about the photography. Does everyone enjoy the more textured/unedited background I've been using now? I used to 'edit' out the backdrops, but i recently stopped due to issues with the results. Leaving the backdrop unedited has worked for me in some photos (Such as this one), while I've struggled with getting a decent backdrop in others (Like this one). However I think I'll stick to it for now, untill I figure out how to do it better.

It looks fine. With the lighting this good, it gives the photos a more natural look than editing out the background. (plus, the best way when editing out white backgrounds to make the photo realistic is to have realistic shadows, which is impossible on pure black - reflections are nice on black, though)

A very nice MOC! Luke looks great with the Endor Rebel helmet and those speeder are excellent! The foliage looks very lush just like Endor. :thumbup:
