Not bad, but there are a few things I need to point out here.

First off, this is not the Lincoln Monument, it's the Lincoln Memorial as your reference image states. Secondly, this isn't architecture, it's just a sculpture. I suggest trying to build the rest of the temple in order to make this count as architecture. Also, it looks like Abe is piloting a podracer, :laugh:  so I think it would be better if you could find a way to attach his arms on top of the armrests. I am also not sure about the hair choice. Personally, I would prefer Count Dooku hair or generic male hair, but it's up to you.

No offense, it's a good start, but far from being a worthy addition to the architecture line in my opinion.

Yeah, the whole building would be better suited to the contest. The only architecture I see is two columns. It's a good start though. I know you said it in your post, but how was this picture not taken in '07? Did you take the picture yesterday, and just for kicks you put '07, I don't get it...

You're not the only one.  :wacko: Also, if possible, could you use this piece for Lincoln's hair:

I find it much more realistic.
Also, why are his arms positioned like that? He looks like he is angrily getting up...

Looks good. I have to agree with what others have said, you should try a different hair piece of the same color. I really like the lighting on the second picture, maybe it would be good to have your first picture like that too?

Anyways, good luck.  :thumbup:
