I was wanting to try and push my modelling skills in SketchUp a little further and, what started off as a test exercise, became a little obsession. I've always been inspired by construction photos taken in the early 1900s, especially in America (New York, Chicago etc.). Back before health and safety was an issue. So I tried to create a scene that would fit into that period.

I spent way too much time focusing on the smaller details of this scene. So much so that you can't even see most of it in the final render. But, I was enjoying the process. So I took it into Photoshop and made it into a full scene. I've still got lots to learn, but I felt this was a step in the right direction!

Any feedback would be appreciated!
