Christmas Family Photo
For many families, getting a family photo is a tradition. So I decided to build a MOC of one. I originally created a build that was too big, so I separated it into two parts. This one is for the contest entry, the other part will be a different MOC.
About this creation
This is my contest entry for the Christmas Contest 2012 Enjoy, and good luck to the other contestants, Merry Christmas!

Background - This was originally going to be a family picture studio, but it was too big so I just have the "forest thing" instead. The background has trees and a mountain far away. The studio and this will be in a separate MOC, but only this part qualifies for the contest.



Overhead view with the minifigures.



The tree. I'm happy how this turned out. I just needed it tall enough to fit a family photo since I have limited leaves. Plus it had to fit in a studio.



Side view of the scene.



The backdrop. I had fun with this part, it looks cool because it's a mountain far away, and it's not just flat! I also have trees further back that turned out great!



Side view from overhead.

Thanks for looking! Don't forget to rate and comment.

Quoting Kenton Lanier Thanks for participating in the Christmas Contest! 4.5/5 for originality/creativity. A great idea for a Christmas build. 6.5/10 for build quality. The partial tree on the right side works well, and the mountain makes a nice backdrop, although it's not easily recognizable as a mountain. 4/5 for presentation. The photos are clear and bright, and I think the black was a good idea for some of them, to contrast with the white build. Total score = 15/20. Nice job!
Thanks!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist 3.5/5 for originality. Nice idea, one which I wouldn't have thought of. However, you could have played it up more by building the photographer or a set of lights. 5/10 for build quality. I like how you chose to try forced perspective, though I feel that the mountain could use some work, such as having light grey at the bottom or including patches of greenery. The base was fairly simple, though the use of cheese slopes was effective and the half-tree turned out pretty well for the main photo. 4/5 for presentation. The photos are fairly well lit and clear. However, while the background works well in the main photo, the black/white contrast is distracting in many pictures. Total: 12.5/20 A solid entry. You're good at presentation, you just need to refine it a tad. The build itself would have been improved by more details, a larger and perhaps SNOTed landscape, and a bit more work on the FP. Still, you definitely have the potential to do great builds, and all the best in the new year!
Thanks! The contest has a size limit....so it couldn't be larger. That's also why I didn't have the photographer in it, check out the Christmas Family Photo Studio. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/349064
