Nice work Jamie, Roland.  Here’s my offering just for a bit of fun.  A mix and match combination of TA effects and reflection.  Fireflies are intended.  In fact were encouraged by me.

Digitalis…very nice render and sense of scale with the man. I don’t like the layering in the rocks - the geology looks too perfect, but the protruding rock effects coming out of the layered rocks is great as it adds to the 3D effect.

Roland…wonderful use of light effects (volumetrically done, I suppose?). The circular pit area looks odd – wonder would giving the edges (where the water/sand meet the main rocks) an additional piece of terrain, or small rocks attached, so as to take away from the near-circular look to the edge?

Here’s the how to without the theory Bryce 5 minute lighting project - how to set up “obscure” lighting - a tutorial by David Brinnen Five minutes of your time… and some more of your CPU’s is all you require.  Bearing in mind that you already have a version of the HDRI shown in your content supplied by Horo that you got with Bryce 7.1 Pro!  Know your content?  Bryce Content PDF by Horo

David, your renders all look so good while I am still exploring the wonders of wings with more wacky shapes, Somehow I still cant the lighting right to make it look as realistic as yours.

Interesting Wings shape.  Post me your scene (if it is small enough) and I’ll make a video of how to go about relighting it.

I put Horos lake pic in and it became shinier.

That’s good.  When you have mostly reflective objects in a scene you can get away by just using a nice HDRI backdrop to give an impression of complex lighting.  If you use mat materials, then it is time to invest in more advanced methods.

Yes, I think its time for me to learn more about materials.
After all materials probably play the most important role in getting a nice looking pic out of any 3D program.

BTW: I sent you the shape per e-mail.

Here is the Hi-res terrain (sans dragon) I adjusted the composition a bit to make the moon more prominent.
looks like an alien landscape.

@David:  Thanks David.  That’s a very interesting image you created.  It’s really interesting how the light makes it look really busy.

@Roland:  That’s a nice secret place.  Love the results of the trees.  The center gives me question in that the left half is colored and because of the intense light the right half is washed out.  Was this intentional?  The light rays look very good as well.

@eireann:  Love the intricate cubes you made with Wings.  Even better the results when rendered in Bryce.  You may not have obtained the results you were after in the first image, but I think it looks very nice.  The touch of purple(?) and the hint of shadows is very pleasing.  And the shiny affect in the second image is wonderful, even though it might not be what you were after.  They’re both very nice.  I also like your alien landscape.  Almost looks like someone dusted it with powdered sugar.  You sure this isn’t a close up of a ginger bread cookie?

@Rareth:  Those the mountains are rather dark, I like the way you’ve done the sky.  With the moon(?) as large as it is.  Real nice.

I was going to make the same observation that Jay did but when I saw his post I decided not to but I would say it looks better now. Before it just looked too perfectly round to be a believable place in nature.

Looks like a targetting laser for a DeathStar strike. smile

Thanks, There is a light in the background and i think the position is not good.
