Cool mines, I have an idea when taking photos of lava if you don't have a light up brick would be to shine a small torch like a maglite or something on the lava patch, I haven't tried it yet but it's an idea.  Love the mine cart and interesting pick axe.

I love it.  Are you planning on connecting these scenes with future scenes?

Great job on this ones as well Legonardo! Mines is something that I have to create someday cause they are really intresing and you have done a great job with yours!  :classic:

Perhaps some more details over the first mines entrance? Some statues or carvings so it looks more dwarfish?  :classic:

You've done a great job with both of these!  We haven't seen many dwarven MOCs, but these two are excellent.  You do a great job of conveying the mine coming out of the side of a hill - the rocks and foliage along the top are very well done.  On the 2nd, one it is just presented very well.  I like all of the mineral deposits, and I like the back view as well.  The only thing I would suggest is perhaps a black tile in the window over the 3 studs?  Just my though.  Excellent MOCs!
