MO-R3-2D-Leda Kat vs Parrington Levens
MOC Olympics -Round 3- group 2D. Category: “Waterfall Landscape” Create a majestic waterfall.
About this creation
Please view my opponent's excellent entry from across the ditch.



Here on Mars a majestic waterfall creates a romantic backdrop for a Martian wedding.






Water on Mars differs from water on Earth. Here on Mars it is a rainbow of colour, it shimmers like jewels and it glows like neon at night. No wonder these falls are a popular attraction for weddings, vacations and picnics.









Some lighting to set the mood...







I chose a Martian landscape due to the fact that my trans pieces are all coloured and could use them to their advantage by creating something fantastical. I have very few clear pieces that I could use for water for this category and also a lack of greenery to make a beautiful earthbound waterfall.





Here are some photos taken with more light so viewers and judges are able to see the build in more detail and without too much distraction.

Quoting jacob meier how did you light up the water?
It was a small flashlight behind the moc that shone through the transparent bricks.

Stunning! That lighting effect is really beautiful! This reminds me a bit of one night during the time I went to see Niagra Falls, and how the water is lit up like this. Really great work!

Quoting James Witt Yes very nice.Where do you get those heads?
I assume you are talking about the Martians? They are from the Life on Mars theme from 2001: http://www.brickset.com/browse/themes/?theme=Space&subtheme=Life%20On%20Mars

You can borrow them whenever you want, only not this weekend, I need them for a concert I'm giving at the...Oh wait, you mean my trans lego pieces?... Oh yeah, trans is my bag baby.

Now this is amazing. I definitely would have voted for you, especially since the category is "Waterfall LANDscape", not "Waterfall...foliage(?)scape." Sorry, just tryin' to help. :P Anyways, this is truly magnificent and beautiful. You are now one of my favorite builders :)

Truly an amazing piece of work Leda! The lighting really put this one over the top for me. Both entries were amazing! So glad I didn't have to judge this one. Woulda been a tough call. Come on over to the "beat the judges" group and lay some smackdown on me! You know how I love the abuse... ~ Chris.

Quoting LEAD Leda Kat September 14, 2010 Cheers bro. And best of luck to you also. It's always tough competing against friends (even thought Aus and NZ are mortal enemies...)but I think we both did our countries proud. If one of us makes it over the ditch one day, hows about the winner buys? Hehe, looks like the beer's on me. Anytime you plan a trip to Melbourne, just let me know...

Look honestly, when i saw the title picture i thought you were trying to portray a glass pipe organ - i was very interested in what the theme was. Then i saw it - i am loving this waterfall, the whole mars scene works for me - those judges cant have seen Total Recall for a long time. If i were a judge id be giving this mine and the two others votes lol. Gives me some awesome ideas... 5/5 my Kiwi friend!! ~Thoy

My uncle wrote a book about Mars. If he was looking at this he'd be delighted to note that you have accurately depicted the surface of Mars as brown, NOT red. If I'd been voting that would have swung it your way... as it is, congrats on a spectacular waterfall and commiserations on the result.

Certainly you had it on the waterfall part, but I would have to agree with the landscaping part. Still, very creative and colourful. Lee.

Great job Leda, I love the lighting and iridescence of the water. The martian landscape is pretty barren, but that was also a bit of the problem with the judges I think. The one thing you might have done is to add rocks to the flat lands, just to give it some dynamic. But other than that, amazing. ~Waff
  September 14, 2010
Quoting Mister Bones I love how Yuri voted against this as well, but Hansi wants to see ME beat up by Leda.....thanks Cheffy!
What does seeing you beat up by Leda have to do with the judging? You're the one reading something into it;^) I would just like to see you spanked by her, is that so wrong? :p~H

I love this mate, cleverly stepping around a lack of clear trans by utilising all your other trans pieces - I even see windshields integrated in there! It was always going to be a disappointment when You or Parrington knocked the other out, and i'm sure there'll be more matchups like this where i'm not rooting for one or the other, just waiting to see what's posted and enjoying it. Comisserations on not advancing, but nice build regardless.

What? This is a barren Martian landscape, it's supposed to be desolate! I see what you mean, though, perhaps scattered rocks and stuff would help. Still, I'm blown away by the creativity and execution of this category. If only I was judging...

Wow, the mighty have fallen...This really was a tight one(shut it!), each MOC having it's outstanding features. I love the lighted waterfall effect, it makes me so jealous of all those colorful trans pieces. Now, Mars does have beautiful rock landscapes, something that would have probably put this over the top. Oh well, you battled hard, now it's time to join me on the sidelines so we can heckle the remaining competitors together! Plus, you could always challenge Bones in one of the side-games; that is a spanking I want to see!~Princess

Your waterfall is outstanding and the concept is brilliant! The lighting you used is awesome as well. This was a tough choice for me, but the category is "waterfall landscape" and your landscape simply leaves something to be desired, even for Mars. My vote is for Parrington.

Wow! You have a lot of trans. peices! I like the waterfall a lot, the way it lights up is a nice feature. The landscape is bland but its meant to be, because Whats actually on Mars thats not bland? I also get kinda jealous when people use aliens, 'cause I never got any. >Eric

Quoting Parrington Levens Gorgeous. I knew your build would be prettier, but I had no idea you'd do it like this! An alien waterfall! Like der, how did I not think to do that? I was sitting here looking at all my trans yellow with a smirk on my face, but never thought to just go alien like you have here. Clever. I love the little aliens, so cute! This certainly looks majestic Leda, especially that shot from in front slightly overhead. With the light going through the trans colors, it is a magical effect. Best of luck in round 4.

Really love this martian landscape and the lightning, it's beautiful ! On the other hand, your entry don't have a story (even if it wasn't needed), so I think I love your entry and Parrington's entry for different reasons. Once again it will be hard for the judges... Anyway wonderful job, good luck !

There is no scenery on Mars! Its just a barren landscape! I gave you a waterfall and some trees, what else do you need huh?!

Very fantastical and romantic. I think that moving the whole set to Mars due to lack of trans white piece is a master move. Plus, we get to see a real Martian threesome wedding ;)

This is exactly how you bring it when you don't have the "norm" to fulfill the category requirements. Like I told Parrington....you building a 3D waterfall could take it....but the whole martian thing may take it regardless. I didn't mean to be harsh on last entry, but I want you to be just as honest with me in this contest....if it ain't up to par call it out. The only thing you lack here is scenery. No matter how the judges call it, I'm extremely proud of your entry here.
