Can you repost your image, using a smaller size. Maximum size at the moment is 800 pixels on the longest side.

The Automtatic image resizing is not working at the moment. Sorry about that.red face

It is really very good, for a first render, well done.


Only one little problem, can you please resize the image to be a maximum of 800 pixels wide. At the moment the automatic resizing is not working.


Thanks.

It's great to be back!

Since the theme is "Here and There", I was inspired to give a shot at a scene from "There and Back Again" (The Hobbit). Per the comments I received in the old forums, I added two low-intensity distant lights to increase the brightness. I added light flare on Sting using the supernova filter in GIMP

Very nice for your third render. The lighting could be a little stronger to match the background; but otherwise is perfect.
The expressions on the faces tells it all

WOW! This looks fantastic. The posing is very dynamic and the lighting is very nicely done.

This looks like a still from a Movie. Very well done.
