Weird it certainly is.
The head is from Poser and the object from Archive 3D.

This is as close as I can get to my dream.  I’ve had this one a few times and it is a bit annoying.  The background is dark grey not black.  And there is something in the middle, the scale of the object in the middle is not clear, it is either very large or small, but whatever all I know it is feels heavy or dense sort of thick, like it is taking up all the air and space, like being trapped in a box filled with sausages.  From the top right or top left comes a line.  This is lighter than the background, also grey - it might be a point leaving a trail like the trace on an oscilloscope, but it is moving fast enough to look like a line.  It curves in towards the thing in the middle, and falls into an orbit.  At first the orbit is smooth and everything is fine.  But then it starts to break up and I have to concentrate to make it orbit smoothly and as I do so the density of the thing in the middle increases and the pressure to break up the line increases and the concentration goes up and so it escalates till the line shatters and the dream ends.

All done in Bryce.  One render making use of an adapted version of the 300 degrees EWL made by Horo.

This is a strange dream to me, I don’t know if it is strange by other people standards, because visually and in terms of context it is nothing like the other dreams I have.

OK, here’s the finished product, I’m much happier with it. I’m sure most of you could have done this in minutes compared to my hours but.. I’m pretty happy for a first “official” render here.

I call it..  Tower Dreams.

‘Fractal coral reef’

This one’s terrain started as a julia fractal. Then it was slightly filtered to look more like a natural terrain formation while maintaining its original fractal shape. The final image isn’t a lot altered from the original version. Postpro done in GIMP only consists of:
- saturation + contrast correction
- flare added
- additional colour correction via curves

The ship model downloaded from here: http://www.sharecg.com/v/27228/browse/5/3D-Model/BOAT-RACE-brice
The image is highly inspired by: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Julia_island2.jpg

Believe it or not, it still lingers in my Bryce at work folder and each time I want to delete it, I remember that I got it from Trish.

@dwsel_ - now the view from above with the reflected sun is incredible. We seldom think of using such a camera position.

I’ve googled several bird’s eye point of view photos the sea:

It depends on the water depth and the vegetation below the surface. The birds-views the links show are probably all tropical waters.

  While I haven’t actually had this as a dream, putting a saddle on a bug and riding it certainly wouldn’t surprise me as the kind of weird thing I would dream about.  Here’s my WIP, “bug hunt”.  I debated between very tiny people riding normal-sized beetles and normal people riding very large beetles, and finally settled on the later.

  @dwsel_ , I think the colors look nice to me, although admittedly I’m not an expert on overhead tropical ocean views.  When looking at reference photos, keep in mind there’s a good chance the colors could have been tweaked to try to make them look better, the camera doesn’t always correctly capture what’s really there, and the color of water can change quite dramatically depending on factors like the time of day.  I can’t remember where it is, but somebody had a great series of photos of the exact same bit of ocean taken at different times of the day, and the colors are dramatically different from one end of the photo shoot to the other.

I know on skies a camera can use a polarizing filter to get bluer skies. I would presume the same is true for water. Don’t know how you could translate that into a Bryce technique.
