About this creation
2014 MA

Hi!

This is my fourth entry. At first, I was really struggling with another idea and probably wasted a whole week :P But I managed to scrape up this build.

Welcome to my little vacation area! As you can see, we start with a lovely beach. This is not tropical, though.



Here are some nice beach chairs to recline on.



As we come around here, the beach ends and we approach . . .



The basketball court! Complete with a 3 point line and free throw line, this court is definitely top-notch.





Coming around, there is a nice tree that provides shade.



There is an open area here for whatever you want to do!



There are stairs carved into the rock here.









Here we come to a peaceful lookout, shaded by trees.



That concludes our little tour! Thank you for watching.




The build:

Boulder and some foliage. Pretty happy with them.



Trees! Also fairly happy.



Rocks! I was very happy with them. In a few places, like my previous creation, I slanted panels of rocks and mixed that with standard up and down rocks. Quite happy with them.



Reasoning: I like being outside. I like beaches. I absolutely love basketball.

Quoting Halhi 141 I think what's stopping you from getting a four is size. Your builds tend to be big, but very spread out and sparse. If you built something smaller, more detailed, and more complex, rather than having so much plain space (like the landscaping here) it would probably be better. That aside, the MOC is pretty good; your rockwork is definitely getting better!
That was nagging me subconsciously - the size yet not a lot of detail. You are giving me all this fantastic advice yet I haven't really been following it . . . Well, thanks very much Halhi - I'm going to make myself focus on smaller and more detail. Ooh, I'm glad you like the rocks!

Quoting Grant Davis Very nice! I like the hoop in particular. I think you might need to invest into a little better spot for photography, paper works, a sheet if you have it is better IMO.
Fantastic advice - thanks very much Grant.

Quoting sam the first Dudey!! i wouldn't mind staying there...though, it lacks acres of land and ramps, for a Sunday's afternoon quad biking...
Haha, I've never really been into off-road stuff like that, but it would be really cool to build. Thanks Sam!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it s a great scene! I think what I like best about it is that it has all types of terrain, rock, grass, court, sand, water, whatever someone would feel like doing is available, bravo!
Thanks so much, Frank! I wish the judges saw it as that, though :)

Quoting Chris Phipson Score of 3 ~ Chris.
Thanks, Chris. But I gotta say from my subjective perspective. . . There has got to be a huge gap between 3 and 4. I use more advanced techniques than other builds that were given 3s. I included more feature. That said, I most likely lack in presentation. Ah well.

Quoting Professor B. It's an interesting place to play basketball. :P Nice build! Really like the hoop. My only complaint would be the stairs. They seem a little too steep. Great build all the same!
Thanks Professor! Yeah, I agree - they're about right for someone a little bigger than a minifigure.

Quoting Stephen Boe Very nice rockwork! I think the tiles on the beach should have been placed on the part where the water hits the sand, to emulate a smooth, wet look, though. Overall, a solid build, Alex!
