All right, so I'm just starting to build some MOCs that I'm comfortable with sharing. The first one is a small fountain:

Very nice design.  I'm not too good at these types of builds, so I esp. appreciate the work they take.  This would make a great focal point/center for a park or larger estate.  
Some classic cypress trees nearby would look great.

It is a nice design. I tend to try and simplify things instead of make them more complex. So, I like this one because it is not made out of a bijillion little tiny parts. I wonder if it could be simpler and still have that look though.

Thanks for the comments! I'm glad you like it.

It probably could be simpler; just not with the pieces I had  :classic:

And TheBrickster, that's a great idea. I was fiddling around with the idea of a park (as evidenced by the bench in the background that didn't turn out nearly as well as I had hoped it would), but was unsure how to expand it. I need to look into getting some cypress trees, as all I have are the pines/firs.

Very nice MOC, Mariko! :thumbup:

It reminds me a bit of a marriage - supposably because of the white colors. Great design!

Very well done! :thumbup:

The fontain design is great but i think that the water should be more on top...

I agree with Lord Santos, the water level could be raised 1 or 2 plates higher. Also I think the fountain should be 1 or 2 studs wider from all angles, i.e. more water. However in saying that it is still a very neat lil moc  :thumbup: good job for sure
