TMNT Lego : Sewer Fall

In this second set, I wanted something built upward with a lot of water. The side shot gives you a good idea of how the set is erected. I tried to see if I could build a waterfall with the blocks I had and built the rest from there. The water fall is actually fake, as you can see from this back picture, there are some blocks that hold the waterfall in place. In another set, I used bridge of pipes that the turtles could hang on to. I decided to reuse the idea and make a pipe bridge they could go over and under.

I uses the miniature sewer plate base as real sewer plate. I have little decorations available so I use what I have. Finally, in the middle of the water, there was not enough block to build a real bridge and I did not want the bridge to have a huge impact on the picture, so I built a remaining structure of a bridge. I also added some floating cylinders representing junk.

Scene 1: Come on, it's going to be fun!

I did not use a cloth for those pictures, It's problematic if I take the scene to close to the wall because it can cast shadows.

Scene 2: You shall not pass!

Each character managed to move on the other side using different paths. The bridge shot is not perfect, had a lot of trouble with the focus and the flash.

Scene 3: Charge!

From this point I started to experiment with the manual shutter speed to take better indoor pictures. The results seems relatively good with and without flash. I liked the idea of having a fight on the bridge stone, so I made Donny have a staff duel on the bridge.

Scene 4: It's not over?

I thought I could add more foot soldiers by reusing the defeated soldiers from the first assault and placing them on the opposite side. I only have 6 foot soldiers, but it gives the impression I have more. I also liked the foot soldier stuck in water. That is something I wanted to use a long time ago, separate the body and use only the upper half.

Scene 5: Take cover

This picture was a bit trickier to take as I needed to keep donatello and the upsidedown foot soldier in balance. Not sure if turtle could actually float like that on water.
