Wow Joe - that’s really amazing. Reminds me of Albert Bierstadt, one of my favorite western US painters.

I won’t lie Dan but I was browsing around and saw Bierstadt work and it did inspire me on this one. The light he captures is incredible. Spent hours trying to replicate it but to no avail.

I agree that is a superb render,  Nice tip about the waterfall as well, I hadn’t thought about using my waterfall brushes that way.

nice - may I suggest you make the camels and male smaller
they would fit the scene better .

I agree, at the moment the scale looks wrong.

@Dave - that looks dramatic.

@mermaid010 - I like the idea. The water droplets are difficult to see.

@orbital - beautiful scene.

@adbc - that’s a nice idea. As has already been suggested, the scale is yet an issue.

@Jamahoney, I really like your feet in shallow water scenes - kind of nostalgic idea and they look great!

@Savage64’s glass of water is almost perfect- Wow! - makes me thirsty to see it! Only perhaps the watery pattern on the floor is too odd and less convincing.
Your ship in the rain is also amazing and spectacular - did you do post-work effects on it? The ropes and detail have a sketched look on closeup view.

@JStryder the frog in tub idea is great - maybe needs some waviness of the water surface around the edge, and the frog’s skin texture is a bit dull and not living up to the liveliness of the other objects. Add some more reflection and shine in skin the eyes and you’re away!

@Hansmar - I’ve seen those water-drop pics you mention and they are so beautiful - your modeled drop in looking very good indeed!

@Horo’s moody scene is very beautiful indeed - so realistic and peaceful.

@Orbital’s idyllic scene has indeed managed to create the feeling of an old image and is very grand.

@Adbc’s scene will also look majestic with that white desert once the objects’s scales are better matched to the scene terrain scale and the perspective.

I haven’t had time to do a scene just for this watery theme yet -  but to show my interest,  I’m posting this one which I did in preparation for the December competition. this was a bit of an inadvertent render but it looks quite unusual and dramatic anyway.

@orbital: Wonderful scene! Lovely atmosphere.

@adbc: I agree with the others on the size. Otherwise a nice render

@keryna: Thanks. And your ship scene is very nice, but maybe indeed more of an icy render.

@orbital:  A very beautiful and awesome scene.

@adbc:  That’s a nice first entry.  When you make the adjustments it will look better.

@Keryna:  Love that ship.

Thanks. Yes, the spils are a bit wrong, but with such a long render, I’m not sure I’ll find the time to fix it and re-render it… Maybe I will though as I agree it does let the picture down.

Your ship in the rain is also amazing and spectacular - did you do post-work effects on it? The ropes and detail have a sketched look on closeup view.

No post work… The sketch effect is a result of refraction from the rain filter I put in front the Bryce camera to get the rain drops.
