I really enjoyed doing this one, and I like it the best so far, despite it’s issues.
I do know better than to do things straight on, and I did attempt to adjust with little success. It’s a mix of two different Dickens Village Fezziwig buildings, and I think I missed them pretty well.
It was impossible to avoid people altogether, but they’re small and just in the window…and blurred slightly on purpose, though I think they looked better before I obscured them!
The weakest part (from my perspective) is the added boxes in front of the window (at least the top two) and the wreath and garland above it. That and the mixed building styles, but who would have known that if I hadn’t mentioned it? 😉
“He has spent but a few pounds of your mortal money; three or four perhaps. Is that so much that he deserves this praise?”
“It isn’t that, Spirit. He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our servitude light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power is in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count ’em up: what then? The happiness he gives is as great as if it cost a fortune.”
