Nice idea dave. It should look great when finished. I haven't posted any progress on my entry yet ( although I have done quite a bit on it already ). I probably wont post any of my WIP's until the week we submit.

Sounds cool, dave. If I had to imagine a photo in which a small robot would be placed... it probably wouldn't be a tranquil stream. So I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes together. Good luck.

Haha, when I read you were putting the robot in the river pic, I had to read twice to make sure I read it right. I'm curious to see how that will work out too. You got your work cut out for you. Good luck...nice robot so far, I'm liking it.

Very nice results dave. Are you going to keep the reflections sharp, or are you going to blur them?
