The Mines of Moria
About this creation

|Disclaimer|
This is only about 1% actual LEGO. The rest is pure photo editing wizardry.



This one is the original version, but for the main pic, I took half of it and mirrored it.


I built one pillar, took a bunch (90ish) of pictures of it in different positions, and edited them all together. It's far from perfect, but I think it turned out pretty well for my first try at something like this.



Here's what one of the raw pictures looks like. I had about 90 of these.




And here's what my setup looked like. A grid of masking tape on the basement floor, some posterboard, and a red light.


Moria

Have a very merry Christmas!
Soli Deo Gloria!

Thank you, everyone!
Quoting Justin L. Awesome photoshop work. On par with that one Dr. Who thing Mr. Xenomurphy built. Good job.
Thanks! That was my inspiration for this.

Like Mark said, very impressive work here! Especially for your first try at something like this. The lighting is perfect, and your editing work is really cool! I like how you included your setup for the pictures. Well done!

Quoting Vladimir van Hoek Well done! It took me a close look, but you mirrored the best side; the darker right side does have a nicer floor, but the left is so brilliantly lit! Too bad you cannot post it for MELO :P Good luck with that, maybe we'll cross paths again!
Thank you! I hadn't thought of that, but now that you point it out, you're right. Yeah, I definitely would post it for MELO, but that "no photo editing" rule kinda limits me. :) Good luck to you too, I think a rematch would be a lot of fun!

Quoting Noel Peterson Wow! Is this the creation that you said you could build in half an hour but, would take hours of editing?
Yep! It took about 6 hours of editing, 2 of photography, and maybe 30 min of building. :P
