Very nice render Dax. I see what KYA means about the DOF, though I don't find it really disturbing. The lighting and scene composition are very nice Do you have a higher res of this? It's a bit smallish
I am sure I commented on this yesterday and faved it I guess not, must be the lack of sleep
AnyWAY, great scene, and nice subtle lighting that is VERY pleasing to the eye. Personally, I am not so fond about the DOF effect, but then again, I rarely like CG DOF int he first place, unless it looks like a photo to me and the word CG hasn't came to mind at all watching it. I would have made it more subtle, but that is just my personal taste. The grass itself is beautiful, the "dark" areas have a nice hint of light on them, which make it very realistic, make you feel you are surrounded by big rocks, excellent scene with a great feeling of "being surrounded"
/offtopic-in general-and unrelated to this render/ "sigh" The better a person gets in making realistic scenes in Vue, the less you find scene's achieving photorealism, I noticed this yesterday, I showed a very good friend of mine my Vue work from old to new, some looked like photo's he said, while I only saw a bad CG image, with bad lighting I think as an artist that wants to achieve realism, we are not easily impressed anymore. Is this good or bad ?
