Like a beggar seeding the pot, I will throw in this one I made the other day for the “underwater city” thread, which seems to have been abandoned by the OP. I am most pleased that I finally found a way to use the “light sensitive” material option. The harder the lights shine, the higher the density of the material - for added murk.

The Kraken, by Alfred Tennyson
Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber’d and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
@David: Your last image in the last render thread looks like something see on monitors in Sci-Fi movies. Looks neat. Your latest underwater looks great. The light prism affect on the toppled statue is a nice touch.
@keryna: That’s a very nice shell. Sky and water do it justice.
@Dave: That’s an interesting image. I only wonder about the light on the near tank.
Great render. I don’t particularly like the subject matter because of what it implies, but the render is excellent.
Thanks Horo. I’m glad you like the render.
Maybe the subject matter isn’t implying what you think it is, though I usually like to leave interpretation up to the viewer.
When I was setting it up I had in mind last year’s events in Egypt where due to the Arab Spring revolutions the treasures of Egypt were pillaged by people taking advantage of the country not having any Government or law authorities.
@ TheSavage64 the pyramids look fab against the haze and the color is stunning, The tanks create a disturbing slant to the image that reminds me of war and peace
Though I’m not exactly sure of what make and model the tanks are, I’m quite sure they aren’t contemporary to either of the world wars.
In their original livery (which I substituted for rust) they were UN badged… but like I just said to Horo, the viewer’s interpretation is more important than the artists intent.
