Another Bryce scene. Sorry about the same objects!

I was going to put a light in the lighthouse, but I couldn't find anything that would help me do this, so I have left it as it is.

OK Here we go. Bear in mind that I did this in Bryce 5, so your controls may look slightly different. I built a quick and dirty lighthouse with prims.

In this one I reduced to intensity of the radial light and added a spotlight, set to visible and stretched.

Sorry! Hows this.


As Jadrail mentioned, bringing the forward dof forward a little will help. Might want to move the rear dof forward also. As the bear is lengthwise to the camera, having the back start to fade into the background will integrate the bear more into the image. Depending on the focal length the camera is set to, this would be what would happen with an actual photo.

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

I'm so happy. This month as started with some really good help and some very good renders in just 4 short days. I was afraid people might be scared off by a technical challenge but I appear to have been very wrong. I am really going to enjoy the rest of this month until voting time rolls around. I can tell already that that part will be very hard this time.

Looking really good so far. Maybe a bit more blur in the background, but that could be personal preference.


I think that I have gone as far as possible with keeping the foreground and background slightly out of focus.
Further changing f/stop and/or the focal distance appears to cause the main object to become slightly blurred.

For the Daz Studio users I would like to add to Jaderail's fine image (from Page 4) to advise where the point of sparness is which is displayed as Cross Hairs between the DOF panes see image below.

Thank you for Updating that Szark. It is a very good tip. Even one I was not 100% on myself.

Also if you are new to this these begineers contests then I urge you to read the back pages as there is some very helpful information there which should help.

WOW! Another cool contest (sorry I missed last months). Lots of great tips and advise, thanks teachers.

Maybe not able to try again this month, due to health and family issues, but it is great to see these great renders. Keep up the good work, will pop in when I can
