    I like these better. The others were too bright. The darkness of these add to the feel of the "war."

    What did you use for lighting if you dont mind me asking? I love the dramatic effect.

    The concept is that when nobody is about these models come to life and the German soldiers fight the British troops over certain "territories" in my room. It is a set of work for a gallery installation for my university degree.
    It looks at the possibility (or should that be probability?) that there may be other plains of existence other than our own. It looks at the world in a different perspective to that in which we are used to seeing it.

    The focus in these seem to be pretty spot on from what I can see, remember that most of these are macro shots so I have had to get as large a DOF as possible for some. I'm quite happy with the lighting, with the possible exception of the first.
    And the background in the first could possibly be better, but I didn't want to falsify things too much. These are not supposed to be realistic dioramas but rather toys that come to life and battle in the surroundings in which they find themselves.

    I value critique highly, could you please elaborate on your comments as I would be willing to reshoot in order to get higher quality shots.
