Great work on the tower L! :thumbup:  But I'm not sure about the landscaping, the trees with the bandana's are working fine. But the key and the pistol are making it messy for me. I really like this kind of creativity, but in this case, for me it's a bit of an overload.

Thanks guys! I have to agree with you ecc on the key, I wasn't sure about it but thought I'd leave it in anyway. the pistol however I thought looked quite good.
anyway glad you like it/

You really have gone from strength to strength with your building. I've seen a lot of great stuff from you recently and it's good to see you constantly improving and trying new ideas.
  This is a great moc and looks spot on. I love the use of the technic cog for the tower, perfect!

Agreed mate, I dig seeing builders improving all the time. There are some hits and misses in this build, but overall the look is really nice and abstract as others have said.

Great job!  Very experimental and creative.  Some of the landscaping works better than the rest for me, but kudos for trying a bunch of stuff.  The tower, however, is spot on; you really nailed it!

Great job, especailly the way you used technic pieces on the tower!  Personally, I'm not too much of a fan of using chains for landscaping, but it looks great here.  Also love the flag on top!  :thumbup:

As Angeli said, I think this is more abstract and not meant to be studied in detail. When you first glance at it, it looks like an birds eye view of a woodland tower (how I imagine you meant it to be) with the textures and colors blurring together to form nature's random charm. So all in all, I think this is a wonderful little Lego creation!:thumbup:

Very nice microbuilds. Can't tell if it is real or CG. So, nice photography and photo editing, I guess.

Sorry it's taken me so long to get around to commenting on these beauties Legonardo! I have to say i'm really enjoying your emerging style with these microscales - they feel very impressionistic. I like the fact that as a viewer you both instantly recognise what they are meant to be, but also can find surprising elements within the composition. The presentation is great too, especially the muted, washed out tones in the stronghold one. Great stuff!  :thumbup:
