    Horo, Yellow Pen, adbc, MelanieL, hubert, Mermaid, drachenlords, Thanks for your positive words, glad you like it.

    In olden days, druids would talk to strange creatures at holy places, I understand. That is what happens in my second entry: Meeting at Stonehenge.

    A DAZ Michael 4 figure with clothing, a Greyling, Stonehenge and a Fawn on a field with daisies (lots of instances). A HDRI enhanced sky by Horo. Kind of the same colour setting as my previous entry. That was not originally the idea, but I found this sky most fitting.

    Hansmar - Stonehenge! Why didn't I think of it? I have it and also used it once or twice long ago. I also visited the place twice. Really cool idea Hansmar, and very well done.

    Hansmar : very good idea and very well done. 

  • huberthubert Posts: 128

    Hansmar: A cool idea! I was always sure that Greylings were involved in Stonehenge!  ;)
    A very moody scene. Great job with the instances and the lighting.

    Hansmar - wow another outstanding entry beautiful atmosphere.

  • @ Hansmar: Great work! Cool atmo and Light.

  • Thanks so much for the comments on my first entry. They were very much appreciated.

    Also do we have a closing date for this challenge? 

     

    adbc - What a  cool scene! I especially like the vivid colors and the overall illumination.

    Horo - yeah, it's been a long, inspiring and often strange trip!. What a great concept in your first first image. Very well composed and illuminated. Second image is nicely dark and scary. Has a nice lord of the rings feel to it. Your third entry is a very nicely set scene. Very well done.å

    Yellow Pen - lovely Image and well compose. I very much like the way the elements fit together.  

    Hansmar - Glad you got this done. It's a excellent image. I especially like the details and the Neanderthals poses. Second entry is also excellent. Particularly like the illumination and the sky.

    Primary illumination by the sun. Fill lighting from a large, inword facing sphere dome light that surrounds the scene and use sky IBL.

    Rendered at 32 RPP, TA enabled. About 3 1/2 hours to render.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Hansmar - great idea, nice render - I like the  fiery sky.

    Dan Whiteside - another good idea, very good lighting (but the levitating girl worries me a little)

  • huberthubert Posts: 128

    Dan: Great composition and camera angle. I like the lighting and the Xfrog foliage work. (Ditto Melanie about the lady's positioning.)

  • Dan: thank you.

    And your entry is beautiful. But take a look at the levitating girl, as Melanie and Hubert said...

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 2,330

    Yellow Pen, Horo, adbc, hubert, drachenlords, Dan Whiteside, Mermaid010: Thank you.

    And, Dan, I agree with the others: great render, but strange levitating lady.

    Something I don't understand. Does the girl have legs or not? 

  • adbcadbc Posts: 2,178

    Dan : excellent entry, I agree with the others about the levitating girl.

  • mermaid010mermaid010 Posts: 3,847

    Dan Whiteside - another excellent idea, very good lighting, the levitating girl seems to be floating.
