Woah, that is some really unique fantasy style architecture and waves. An enviable collection of seagulls too!

Amazing work. I particularly like the beautiful curve on the part of the wall that juts out towards the sea (more obvious in this picture). It somehow seems elvish, and fits with the curved weapons. Of course that cliff-scaping and the crashing waves are pretty amazing, as is the overall scale of this beauty. I like the ornament you got at the front corner and at the ends of the walls - I've never seen that piece used well before, but it works here. Also the bell in the tower is very nice.

Thanks, both of you! The curved wall and beach on the right half were the ideas I started with when I began building. The scope of it grew as it was built. I'm glad you commented on the ornamental banners, Bruce. I admit to being a little giddy when I discovered their utility and I might have purchased them in the other available colors on Bricklink.

The waves crashing into the rocks are really striking here as well as the beautifully landscaped rocks with the greenery. And then you top it all with that wonderful castle ;) Really neat work!
