Still playing with Lego, liking this a bit more, my original ones were shot using natural light, this however is shot with artificial light and i think it's better for it. Any thoughts or ideas will be gratefully recieved.

An interesting and well captured subject, Den. Does it work with more contrast?

Lego land is doing well I see, Den. good idea works well.

I appreciate what you have been trying to achieve with the blocks, Den, and think this is the best so far.
The mono and artificial light bring out the strength of the shapes and shadows extremely well.
You obviously like precision. The 3-2-1 is a good idea, as is the slight diagonal of the display.
The perfect shadows are the only thing that I might change, if anything. By directing the light at an angle, your shadows could provide more interesting shapes on the surface, rather than just following the line of the 3-2-1 blocks. For me, this is just a little bit "stayed" and the different angle of the shadows would not only add more interest, but the image then becomes more artistic.
Another idea that springs to mind is a more random positioning of the blocks, as if a child has just dropped them on the floor. I know it isn't easy for everyone to do "random", and I find it difficult myself, but it might be worth the effort. You would just have to go for it and try not to re-position the blocks again and again, however tempting it may be. Try just dropping them, then dropping them again and again, and see what you feel about the results.

This is pretty good!!

Love the minimalist/abstract aspects and the almost 'architectural' feeling that comes through
