I think it's time for this forum to have its own Photography Thread, as I could not find an older one.

I'll start with some pics I took during these holidays, using my LEGO Dino sets (custom items that appear in some shots are from BrickArms):

Posted Image
First sighting of the Triceratops.

Posted Image
A moment of rest.

Posted Image
Don't look back!

Posted Image
I like to call this one 'The Three Hunters'.

Posted Image
Successful hunter.

Posted Image
The crossing.

Posted Image
Egg or fruit?

Posted Image
Poor Jack was here...

Posted Image
I particularly like this last one. :blush:

Hope you'll enjoy them and you'll contribute with your shots!

Awesome foto's! I too like the last one. I might upload some Ninjago photo's later.

Love your photos.  I have the Triceratops, and really like it.  I really need to get a hold of some of those Raptors though.  They could have lots of uses!

I was tempted to start this thread myself. I might have to take some Monster Fighters shots later (Similar to that Night of the Living Dead homage I did a few weeks ago)

Great pics, BTW. The dinos look so natural there in that environment and the pics are crystal clear.  :thumbup:

Edit: D'oh! I had a couple of Pharaoh's Quest shots I wanted to share. These were when I first finished the Scorpion Pyramid set  and I wanted to take a few pics.

Do you have a pterodactyl? If so, I think you could make some great shots using some wire. For example one with the pterodactyl swooping to grab a fish.

Thanks. The Triceratops is my favourite dino right now (probably because is the newest I added to my collection), but the Raptors have a special appeal to them.

Thank you. I spent some time trying a number of poses to have them look natural, but I always have this (palaeontological) doubt: how do we know those are their 'natural' poses; in the end it's just the way we envision them. :laugh:

Unfortunately no, I do not have a Pterodactyl, nor a T-rex (at least from this series, though I have the old Adventurers' ones). Your idea for the Ptero shot is really nice, and I'd be happy to see someone try it sooner or later! :thumbup:

I was kind of referring to how the dinos looked with the background, but that works too. All the same, they look great.

Not sure how I missed this thread.. great shots, Luxor! That's the perfect terrain for those figs. Although, I don't know how wise it is to be hunting dinos with a bow. :laugh:

Or Turok Battle of the Bionosaurs on GBA! That was one awesome game!

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.

I had to use my digital camera because I couldn't find my proper camera (haven't needed to use it in ages!) so forgive me if these aren't the best.

Those are some nice scenes!  :thumbup:  I'm just waiting for my newer camera (I tryed a couple with the older one and decided it wasn't worth it.  It's so old you have to download the photos on our stone age computer and then transfer them one by one on a floppy.  Not worth the trouble!)

Looking good, Wall E2624. I especially like the Training in the Dojo one. :thumbup:

Looking forward to more. :wink:

Glad to see this thread back up and running. I really need to do more Monster Fighter stuff, once I get another set or two (Though I have a few funnies in mind, that is if this thread can be used for funnies as well, not just action shots)

Wow. Pretty nice shot of Lloyd and Garmadon. I use a similar design for the megaweapon, but with the blades turned 180 degrees.

I wasn't very careful, but I took some photos of the Monster Fighters sets I put together, and decided to play around with long exposure and playing with post-processing. Here are the ones that made the cut.
