Been experimenting around with trees lately…especially for this time of year, and Bryce works well with them. BTW, character in first work is not nude! Ooooohhh, that’s gotta hurt the moderators..heheee smile
Title: “Autumn”

I haven’t noticed those before. Both are two very lovely renders.

Horo...thanks on that. Bryce trees worked okay, and setup originally is a small island, plonked with 50 or so trees - small to large - on it.

Found, by mistake, that if one offset’s one of the conical lights (four in all giving the rays, effectively, in second work) ever so slightly at the camera, ones ends up with a kind of small ‘lens flare’ effect (I know lens flares aren’t a fav.,, however, they work when not that so pronounced, I guess).

Cheers again
Jay

Thanks for the nice comments my abstract renders.

@ Silver – Frac-man is a very interesting render. Just browsed your flickr account, your work is amazing. I love the abstract effect you have in almost all your renders. Are they all Bryce renders or other programs as well?

@ Jamahoney – lovely renders. The trees look awesome.

I enjoyed doing both following David’s Panoramic Caverns and optical illusion. I don’t see any illusion in my image ~~sad~~
Does anyone see any illusion?????

@mermaid010, thanks for the visit to my Flickr page, to answer your question yes they are all Bryce, except where i have imported some of my images and use them for backgrounds

I am always impressed with what I see going on in this thread. This is my contribution to the thread. Having some fun with my Volcanic Archipelago project before the next phase when i tear it apart again and start over from scratch with better ideas. That;s why I cannot ever complete anything. Ah well.

Thanks all for your time. Feedback is appreciated.

Your archipelago “world” always amazes me. Though there always detail that can be improved, I think the shot is very near to photo realistic.

Lord...mann…will it ever be over – you probably saw this YouTube vid the other day, it is so dramatic. On the leaves issue, if they don’t blow away on you naturally, I saw advice given by Phil PLatt (aka The Bad Astronomer) – QUOTE:”I heard an interesting piece of advice that seems sound to me: rake your leaves! Leaves get clogged in drains and can aid flooding. By getting leaves up out of your yard, it lowers the odds of flooding – though by how much I couldn’t say. Still, it sounds like something that can’t hurt, especially given some of the predictions I’ve seen for more than 20 centimeters (8-10 inches) of rain!”END-QUOTE

Horo...that sounds also interesting using the weather data that way.

Mermaid...many thanks. Yeah, like with David’s illusion, yours works too – the movement of the dots for my eyes anyway are counter-clockwise (right to left), and it seems also to work better when just a single image of the illusion is on its own (looking at a general area in the bottom right quadrant sector of the image helps aid in the illusion, too). But, it’s probably different for other people.

David...great vids on sky and sunsets…I’ve so much to learn still. How does that saying go: “When the student calls, the master appears.”

Jay

Actually I had already raked the leaves in my yard, the comment I made was in jest, it was all I could come up with at the moment as far as trying to find a bright side to going thru a hurricane. smile A good thing I raked them too, it’s been non stop rain all day yesterday and today and the hurricane isn’t due here until tonight, ugh. When it’s all over they’re saying we’ll have gotten 6-9 inches of rain, maybe more?

I can’t imagine anything making it so much better as to be worth starting over from scratch. Although you could add some touches to it to improve the render such as disturbance of the water where the male figure is and if possible something like footprints in the sandy areas behind both figure’s paths.

Good to see this thread rolling forwards with such a wide selection of interesting images.

Silverdali’s being just as outstanding as Rashad’s on this page, and yet so markedly different.  To me they both look excellent, but I can only really offer any criticism to Rashad’s since I know his aim is photorealism.

Caustics under the waters edge and vegetation are outstanding.  To my jaded English eyes, the colours seem entirely too vibrant to be realistic.  Then again, I’ve never been anywhere like the place depicted in the scene so I may be wrong in saying that that makes it unrealistic.  All I can say is, I live by the sea and the predominant colours are brown (the sea, vegetation) and grey (everything else, the sky, people’s complexions, rain and mist and so forth).

My own contribution to this every expanding thread is more abstract and experimental.

Using export HDR options in Bryce and importing back into Bryce IBL to add postwork effects. A similar process to those explored here.

Bryce 25 minute scene project - wings3D to render to postworks - a video by David Brinnen

But this time including the use of the Spherical Mapper to overcome limitations in Bryce’s HDRI export capability.

Model in Wings3D. Gamma adjustments and layer combinations in PSP8.

@Silver:  As usual, that’s a stunning render.
