BTW, in case anyone was wondering how I fared thru the storm, I fared quite well actually. Fortunately I live far enough from the shore that flooding and storm surge was not an issue. Also the storm tracked more north and west then they were projecting a few days ago and while that made things much worse for New Jersey and New York it spared my area from alot of potential damage and the winds weren’t as strong so I never experienced a power loss which was my biggest concern. Of course my prayers go out to the families of the 39 US deaths and the 20 some deaths in the carribean as well as all the folks who are facing terrible damages and property loss north of me in NJ and NY.
Glad to know you are okay. I live in Manhattan and we got hit pretty hard. Luckily the only service I lost was my internet, I still cannot log in from home so I am popping in from work.
The fact that I was not allowed to close the restaurant made for some pretty interesting and dramatic moments. On Tuesday just after the storm was fully passed we were one of the only places open and we were slaaaaaaaamed. I mean, no time for being nice and certainly no time for anyone’s attitudes. Luckily everyone was in good spirits thankful we all made it through.
Lots of deaths. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are too “wise” to heed the advice of public officials who told them to get out. Every time these big storms happen you have those narcissists who think the storm isn’t a danger to them. They risk the lives of the first responders who are sent to rescue them. A part of me is almost sad Irene was so timid in our area because too many were jaded and stayed home for Sandy. Bad choice, seriously bad.
I really like that scene, and that special material you made works perfectly. Your work has always caught my eye and this piece is no exception.
Glad to have provided some inspiration. I’d say that of the three the first one is my favorite as well. In the revised version it looks quite nice. Gotta love True Ambience.
Wow. Thanks for the confident vote. I am never satisfied so hearing your feedback helps quell the obsessive compulsive drive.
I’m going to need an aspirin if these mind bending images keep coming. Curious how the light vignettes around the edges. The fast rendering clouds look great. I think the indoor image of Twisted looks amazing. I am curious about the anisotropic reflection on the water in that landscape. Nice effect.
Very nice. I agree with the others!
