    Is this closer to the colour as the stone looks rather blue?

    ASAP one brandy balloon coming up I will do it in all black if I can.

    Its either that or a Mini tank with a T5 light unit attached

    Plants ?????

    I think you can work out what I am saying very quickly here.

    Its too flat

    Lift the RH back up about 100cm
    Spin the LH end of the LH DW around towards the front a little to eliminate the flat wall effect.

    The RH piece OK at the moment.

    I do not think the two pieces in the front are necessary it takes away the sight line leading to the top of the back RH corner

    Most impressive is the Substrate matches every thing, its big and bold.

    It might be an idea to start a new topic if not it will get lost in your other posting.

    Now is the time to chop and change things around

    My suggestion is do a few changes take a few photos forget about it for a few days then think about tweaking it here and there and finally BINGO its there ready to go.

    I have even had tapes stuck on the front where the "Focal Points" are, and you would surprised how helpful that becomes.
