    OK, I'll admit to that about the spelling .... :rolleyes:

    So, this guy is really doing lighting in Moscow, Russia?
    Aren't they on 240V over there?

    So, does that mean you sold him a 24 V system?

    Nice detail work on the columns and nice lighting effects. I have to say i prefer the downlighting on the rounded wall in the second photo to the uplighting effect on the other columns.

    The uplighting looks a little hot IMHO, and the details are lost (compared to the downlighting) from this perspective.

    Oh, in the third photo... a Nove at the base, right? What's the other uplight further up the column on the right?

    Oops... exceeded the editing time limit... meant to spell "Nova"...

    Anyway, the column on the right... Nova at the base... then halfway up.. Northstar? Lunar? Or what?

    Actually we make 240/220v TF's Gregg. Thats what we sell to Europe and Russia. They just ship with the power cord cut off.

    We use them here in the states when you want to tie a TF in at your A/C power suppply! 240/220v to 12v!!!

    Again sorry for my spelling, I am the worst at having bad spelling in my posts!!

    On the third photo all lighting from the base made with Nova, columns on the right too.
    We use Nova's with 20w 10dg narrow beams so they look more bright than 36dg. Customer wanted to have this part lit more brightly so we did it.

    Uplighting of the round wall was not possible because where was technical problems to place fixtures and cable. House was already built when be came to it.

    Long week but grabbed a quick shot before we left... will send ash back to take better pics next week. 4 Gambino transformers. All exterior lighting is on the upb. Need to finish setting up the scenes and changing some lamps in the orions. Im not sure why the pic is so yellow... There is a rather obnoxiously blinding street light behind the camera.

    back lit trees in the foreground? Are we looking at the same photo? They look front lit to me.

    the trees directly in front of the home are unlit. The house is reflective enough to give that backlit look and I did not want to detract from the original architecture of the home. The tree to the extreme left is kinda sidelit just to show its there and the tree to the right is also sidelit. When its VERY dark out you cant see that bed when your pulling in to the circular driveway. There is to be 3 more tree lights added in front still. Hard to tell but there is already 4... 1 at each turning point of the drive.

    4 more tree lights to add on this property and need to finish the dock structure outback which will be underlit per request.

    Someone told me I need to play with the white balance on my camera so I will look into that more and try to reshoot it. Hard to see in this pic but there are downlights mounted in the sofits on each side of the front entrance area to show the landing.

    Billy, Nice job. That is a beautiful home. Adjust the white balance like on your camera settings, that should help with the yellow coloring. Sometimes I forget to adjust mine and I get yellow light just like that.
