Great Work, this looks awsome! I think you're photos would be better if their was a bit more contrast. They look kinda faded the way your doing it now. :)

Wow is that a lotta grass! I love the door, and the little details of the build really add to it (fence design, chimney, etc.).

Still haven't found that dang squirrel. Keep up the good work,

Lovely creation! You have done good work on the door and the landscaping with the grass looks really effective here. Also, I don't know whether it's intentional or not but due to perspective the placing of the cow makes it look just as huge as it should look compared to the hobbit, which is a very neat touch in my opinion.

Great job on the MOC! Lots of stuff to like.

Since everyone else has already showered you with compliments over on MOCpages ;) , I will point out that you are still over-exposing your pictures way too much. Not sure what the reason is other than I assume you are using a photo-editing program to reduce contrast in order to clean up the background so that it's all white? If you aren't using photo-editing and it's still coming out this way, maybe your lighting is too harsh? I'm not really an expert, but I'd say that you could really benefit by trying to get the contrast levels worked out.

Hopefully that's helpful feedback. :)

Great job! I am always curious to see how people handle the steep grass slope in builds like these, and the technique you used is very nice.
You would rather be building right now.

Yes, the squirrel is on the left side of the chimney. Nice work finding it you guys. :wink:

Love the lush green atmosphere you've made Justin. You did a really great job of capturing the feel of Hobbiton. :)
