The plainness of the beach and tower is nicely done, it feels slightly lonely and foggy, like it'd be up north someplace, like Norway, or the Orkney Islands
I was just trying to add a bit of variety to our castle world. Using new colors and techniques (like Steve Decreamers different colors for depths covered with trans clear plates) really add alot to the ocean mocs.

Thanks Emily. I know that a few people other than Carl took photos so there should be more. Of course I might just have to rebuild it for the third time
True. I'm not saying your MOC isn't good, in fact, it's awesome, I'm just a little iffy on the flag, though the flag is cool, too, and should definately be used on another MOC. Your White Tower just seems like a UCS type dealy, with a bunch of awesome details and no figs. I didn't really convey that very well in my first post.
I think you have a point about the flag. My tower really needs to be a bit taller and have the windows spread out more. The flag is too large for the building unless the king is residing there.
First i thought you used jumpers, but the spacing between each step is very small, so 7 tiles 2x2 laid on each other perhaps? really curious how you've done it. also the oldgray/white scheme with contrasting flag works for me.
btw i envy you the old gray double convex slopes, i could defintely use them in my keep. (only have 1 now from rock island refuge i recently bought on ebay).
Tonight after work I hope to post my presentation on how I created the tower. Those 2x2x3 old light grey corner slopes were a very expensive order from Germany last year. Unfortunately they are even more expensive now. LEGO should really put those into a set for us. I like how they define the corners in both directions and are a bit longer than the other supports. The snot is quite simple for those.
P.S. I didn't make the Jurassic Park but it is a very cool moc. Good luck to everyone going into architecture. It is a noble profession, just do not expect to make a fortune from it.
