Sorry for not having the time to mark every picture posted here with what is wrong and what is right.
You might just take a look on older posts of mine on certain buildings where i did as you directed.


But for gods sake, just some examples of how its done right:


http://24.media.tumblr.com/0915e6ef7394e95d043260e644ea607d/tumblr_n0ymsg26XF1qgpvyjo1_1280.jpg


http://24.media.tumblr.com/4601c8df30384107370a7f57adeb448b/tumblr_n0wwztLQPS1qgpvyjo1_1280.jpg


http://31.media.tumblr.com/33481a42607cbc0ce1ed6f4da6e53c58/tumblr_n039x0dhrR1qgpvyjo1_1280.jpg

And now compare these to some buildings on Baku for an example...


http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/9300/225005494.2a/0_b5936_fc8ad27e_XXXL.jpg


http://s019.radikal.ru/i612/1308/fc/3f27769fef67.jpg


http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/9064/225005494.19/0_ad971_1b9a4f80_XXXL.jpg

or even worse...


http://img.dayazcdn.net/clickable/10/2/zdanie_v_baku_437985_021.jpg


This one looks actally good on most of its details, but still suffers from its low ceiling hight:


http://radikale.ru/data/upload/ba193/05615/ea84717857.jpg

and for fairness a bad US example which is not bad in material or detail but in overall shape/massing and totaly neglects the style it is suposed to be. It looks like a generator hall and not like a church
Sadly the fade of a lot of US traditional stile buildings


http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/102...90/40/q5jr.jpg

while this is done right in all aspects because its a copy but still great.


http://s020.radikal.ru/i721/1305/43/27ef4cd91c5c.jpg

i hope you can spot the differences in proportion and detail. shouldnt be to hard at all

New Homes by Linden Homes - UK

* I'm only going to post a few pictures on here as there are literally hundreds of new houses built by this company. Linden Homes appears to be the largest traditionalist builder I've yet to encounter. Check out their site for further pictures and info: http://www.lindenhomes.co.uk/
