Re: Arboretum Valley

Thank you for the really nice comments. Much of the modelling results I achieve are totally enhanced by careful photography. I usually go for low angles reflecting the eyes of a model on the layout, it takes a vantage of how our brains work, then you can focus on the better detail and hopefully blur...
