That scene is so beautiful, as others have said, that I found myself, when I first saw it, searching excitedly over the entire vista trying to figure out if it were real or craftwork!!! Frankly, the explanation by you notwithstanding, I'm still not sure! Wow. You are a very gifted modeler, Christopher. Everything in that scene makes you hear it, smell the fragrances, and feel the coolness. Wow.
P.S. I'm a little hesitant, now, to show these examples of a shallow, edge-of-a-city effluence I crafted but do so trusting it helps answer the original inquiry, too.
