Splendid work on New York again.

I have to admit i was a bit disappointed you didn't make a picture with the twin towers but eh, it's been done already in the paste so yeah.

Happy New Year! And to start the year greatly, welcome to the Classics!

Central park is beautifully done, and stunning night scenes as well  &apls &apls

Finally, a few overviews of Midtown Manhattan in all its glory.
Oh yes this is glorious !  :o , like all that you do in fact!  ;)
I do not think there's enough superlative to describe what you've achieved this year, but one thing is for sure, as soon as I'm lacking in inspiration or just when I want to take full eyes, I come here see your work and I realize that this game definitely has no limits in your artist's hands!  &apls &apls &apls
Thank you.  :thumbsup:

art128 - Thanks for the nice words! Yeah, I was thinking about including a pic with the twin towers, but I ended up just doing the two updates for the 30s and present day. I might revisit NYC sometime later on, doing more historical recreations from throughout the city's history - so I'll be sure to keep them in mind for any possible update.

Also, thanks for moving me into classics :thumbsup:

reddonquixote - Thank you very much! Yeah, that was a bit of a shame that it didn't line up perfectly - but even with the statue being off a bit the scene still turned out pretty nice :thumbsup:

manga rivotra - Thanks so much for the nice words, I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I really appreciated all the nice comments you posted throughout the course of 2017, they mean a lot to me :)

For our next destination, we're traveling to another one of the world's most beautiful countries - Japan. We'll be taking a look at some of the country's most stunning landmarks, skylines, landscapes and more.

My all time favorite and longest time living and oldest population, lovely Nippon (Japan).  I have spent 14 years in this wonderful country and their culture and history goes back thousands of years and Japan is recognized as the oldest country in world history as China was in dis-array and India could not even create a wheel at the time.

So well done, as always! The realism level of the cross-roads and the temple with its torii is outstanding, and also a quite interesting visualisation of the dualism of Japanese society.
Come join me on a hike to St Edmea!

Ahh - I love the crossing  :thumbsup:. I've walked across there in real life (and hit my head on the exit signs that hang from the ceilings on the nearby railway station... I guess they don't quite make them for tall westerners)  :D) But it looks almost identical to how I remember it  &apls

Stunning crosswalk scene!  It almost has a way of drawing you into the atmosphere of the area.  The peaceful temple is the perfect foil for the bustling cityscape.  I'm looking forward to seeing more of the beautiful land that is Japan.  Good work!

I am not the most active member but I always have to llok into Your MD if I visit SC4D. But I am totally sorry, cause I am running out of superlatives. I love the Venice picture, and wow, Your picture of Frankfurt is really close to the original (I mean, I am living there, not at this place in the center but...).
But hey, I have no words anymore, I am still overwhelmed by the NY pics and this Tolyo crossing... Forgive me!  &apls &apls &apls

- UPDATE 66: Japan -




Today we'll be taking a look at one of the world's most beautiful countries - Japan. With an impressive mix of new and old structures, landscapes, natural wonders and more - there's plenty here to keep you in awe. Our tour begins with a trip to the famous Itsukushima Shrine in Hatsukaichi, located near Hiroshima on the western side of the country. It's one of the country's most sacred sites and popular tourist destinations - its 45 foot high Torii Gate is truly breathtaking.





We travel east to Kyoto, the former capital of Japan - where we'll visit one of the country's most iconic landmarks: the famous Golden Pavilion. Originally completed in 1397, this site has been a symbol of Kyoto for centuries. Despite being completely rebuilt in 1955, this famous Zen temple still retains its charm and beauty - and its famed gold leaf exterior attracts plenty of tourists.





Japan is a country that's also known for its stunning countryside - and its rice paddies are one of the country's most famous sites. With nearly 80% of the country covered in mountains, terraces like these can be seen for miles around.





Japan is also one of the world's largest tea producers - and beautiful tea plantations are a common sight in the countryside.





Not too far away is another one of the country's most iconic sights: Mount Fuji. Standing 12,388 feet tall, it's also an active stratovolcano with the last eruption coming in 1708. This legendary mountain has also been a pilgrimage site for centuries and is considered one of the country's most sacred destinations.





With nearly 40 million people in its urban area, Tokyo is the largest urban area not just in Japan but also the entire world. Formerly known as Edo, it became the country's capital in 1868 and has transformed into a global economic and financial hub. The city is filled with stunning landmarks, such as it's famed Shibuya Intersection. This "scramble" intersection is said to be the busiest in the world and every light sends hundreds of people in every direction.





The next stop is one of Tokyo's famous landmarks - the Tokyo Tower. Completed in 1958, it stands 1,092 feet tall and is the country's second tallest structure. The observation deck offers extraordinary views of the city - and is a must visit for anyone traveling to Tokyo.





Our final stop is Tokyo's famous Shinjuku skyline - located in the heart of downtown, it's filled with stunning modern high rises and is especially impressive at nighttime.
