The colouring here is really great, blue sea, green grass and especially the yellow roofs - very nice.

I have to second Karrde's comments on the coloring. It's unusual to see a castle MOC done with yellow and, honestly, I think it's refreshing.

Other than that, the rock work and the cabin-like structures look excellent.

I like the tree (I'm always a sucker for a good tree) and the house with the tower in the middle of it. Nice work.

What I think is interesting about this MOC is he used the landscape from another of his MOCs called Mayan something or other. He even left the paths in there. Very Creative. Great work on the rock texturing here as well!

I like the yellow roofs, they work well in this MOC. The middle home is neat with the tower in the center. The "right" side of the MOC needs either better lighting or a better close up on the minifigs. I can see the lady in the white dress standing near what looks like a female wizard. The other nearby figures its too hard to discern what they are doing. I agree that the center tree is cool as well.

Good find Bruce, this moc is very nice!
I love the simplicity of this, its very well balanced.
There are enough colors and architectural variations to satisfy the viewer,
while at the same time its not overly complex or cluttered.

I've noticed a recent trend in the past few years with AFOL's cramming and cluttering
way too much detail in their mocs. Not that details are bad, its just when there's too much of
them, it ends up taking away from the whole moc.

But this moc is well balanced and is a pleasure to look at.
I agree with others, the yellow roof tops are refreshing.

I also like the yellow roofs. I also like how you have that cabin structure at a slight angle so that everything isn't on a grid.

Nice work.

I think the best bit about this MOC is that no two building are aligned in the same plane

It gives a very reall feel to it
