    looked good before, but FAR better now:) good job.

    I like the left side alot. I like the low joining bridge between the two sections of reef too. This is possibly one part i might change and see what its like havinga canyon between the two, but it also looks really good as youve done it.

    good weekend job :)

    Thank you, The Hammer did not do very good higher up but think it where only the stream and it is on a small piece of LR so it tend to fall off.
