Kostas, your models are beautiful, but WHY do you take photos from across the room! (get closer so we can see the detail).

I dont David, the pictures i upload are 1500 wide , thats constand x whatever the height they come out depending how i crop them each time ,but it seems they are downsized even more by the editors here so you get them rather small in the end.My lences are at the minimum focus distance when i take the shots to help maximise the clarity so at 50mm they are at around 30-50cm away and when i use longer focal lengths to get the telephoto feeling they are at 80-100cm which it is still very close if you have descent equipment.

Not sure what that all means, but when I take pics for my gallery with my plain old smart phone camera, you can see the dust particles and pores in the resin.

Wonderful dio! Did you scratch-build the cranes, or did they come from kits?
