Gatehouse
This is a gatehouse to a castle, but since I don't have enough parts for a full realistically sized castle, I made part of one. This is also my first foray into photo editing.
About this creation





Minifig's eye view. Impressive, isn't it?









Here's the moat. It's brown because there weren't a lot of clean moats in existence.



Both portculli are functional. They are raised and lowered by these simple mechanisms.



I didn't plan very well for taking pictures, so I couldn't get a very good shot inside. You can see the murder holes and the hot something-or-other ready to be dumped on any intruders.

I really like your roofing solution here. Your application of SNOT techniques is clever.

Quoting Legofreak2444 ~ Wow! This is very impressive. :D I see a lot of Bricklink orders in there. :P
Oh yeah.
Quoting Ian Spacek Incredible! I had to do a double take when I saw your buddy icon. Dude you have become a master of Lego castle! And is that two portcullises I see? Nice job being historically accurate!
It is two, yes. And thanks for the compliments!

Great build. I like the road very much. I would also leave out the bushes, but that's the only thing I would change! Great!

Awesome build. I like the tree and the grass, but I think you could have left out the bushes - they seem oddly placed. Great gatehouse too. I'm working on my first attempt at castle. Nothing like this, but it is a start. -LB Senior

This is a really nice gatehouse! I like it alot! If you want a dirty moat look you could mix some trans green tiles with dark blue to make it seems swampy.
