All done here. The island here is actually based on a tiny island near Guernsey there’s about another 4 or 5 structures in real life all snuggled among the rocks sheltering from the elements. I’m using google earth at the moment to try and find some interesting landscapes to base more of these aerial photography pieces on. I want to include more of these huge, mythical beasts.

I once used Streetview to get reference images of a particular building. :)
But it didn't look as good as that pic! I love the subtlety of the water being displaced. Very convincing.

Now that you mention it, I used some sort of street view for an aywas background (with Globen, Stockholm, in the background) but I don't think it was google earth, probably a similar function on hitta.se (Swedish map service thingy).

Thanks both - I struggled with that water displacement for far too long. So much so in fact I nearly abandoned it but I'm glad I pushed through - and, while I dont think its hugely successful I learned a few new techniques that I can take into other pieces so s'all good.
