Earthrise.
My take on the earth theme: EARTHRISE.
About this creation

One small step for minifig...



Suddenly, from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel, a light, delicate sky-blue sphere laced with slowly swirling veils of white, rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes more than a moment to fully realise this is Earth…home. –Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14-





Different shots of the LEM. I was shocked nobody posted a LEM before on MOCpages! Please correct me if I'm mistaken...





Detail of the many facets of the LEM.

Detail of the ladder.

Detail of the landing platform. The cuffs were a good solution, thanks for the idea, Lennaert!

It's not all work and serious on the moon. Them astronauts had some good (unrecorded) laughs too!

" Uranus, or mine?"


Moonshot!


Or about that time they left the keys inside the LEM. "Uhm, Houston, we have a problem!"




Thanks for playing everybody at the big O's .

Very clever use of the background! I had to subtract because it was on the moon, not Earth. But you gained all those points back with the moonshot pic. Congrats!

Gio, The lander and the astronauts were spot-on. The one shot of the astronaut descending really carried the low-gravity feeling. I wonder if you pushed the backdrop further away if you could create more depth of field in the photograph and a little focus shift to make the Earth seem distant? Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave

I love the forced perspective of our planet in the background. The lander model is also top notch.

Brilliant take on the category! One word of advice though, if you're ever on the moon, DON'T pull down your space pants.

Wonderful... it's about time someone made a LEM - it'll be a very long time indeed before anyone makes a better one. Great scene - good luck!

This is great! you've really captured the moony feel here, the way you've placed the minifigs makes it look likes there's zero gravity. I really like everything but i think you could have done a little better with the earth, it looks a little alien ;)
