The SW MOC Contest on LowLug has given me the opportunity to practice with taking pictures. That's why I got to work with this fantastic shot from the first Star Wars movie (IV).

Building the scene was fairly easy and quick. But taking the picture has taken me more than an hour, creating the right shot, until I was pleased with the result:

Very nice photograph WFTH, you really captured the 'Tatooine feel' of the reference picture very well. I just feel the added neckpiece is a bit distracting, but maybe it's just me. Overall great job on this one! :thumbup:

Excellent photo. :thumbup: It looks like it might not quite be an exact replica, but it's barely noticeable. The only thing is that I would've used an original  Luke face.

Nice shot workfromtheheart. I like the out-of-focus background and the colours.

I disagree, in the reference picture Luke looks very young and thoughtful, he seems vulnerable and IMO the small mouth of the alternative head helps capture that feel (the freckles are unfortunate though).

Yeah. The freckles make him look too much like the 9 year-old we're supposed to sympathize with who supposedly becomes the heartless evil man.

Perhaps you could send me an original Luke head, because I have non.  :laugh:

The only figures I own are Vader, R2-D2 and C-3PO, so  my choises are limited...

I like how you removed arms from torso so it looks like picture from the movie. :oh:

Great shot. I love the perspective, and Luke's wrap is a nice idea. One thing I'd change is Luke's face. It's not serious enough with those huge eyes. :grin:
