Quote from: Dune on April 08, 2013, 03:09:58 amTerrific. This now has winning chances, to say the least. I do think the shadows are a bit dark indeed, it's a bit harsher than the previous. And I think the translucency of the high trees is very low, they're very dark and you hardly see any detail in the top 'lumps' of needles/branches, if you know what I mean.
Quote from: Hannes on April 08, 2013, 12:32:18 amOh yes, this is it! The plants look way better now with the fill light setup imho. Maybe a last suggestion: you could try the cubic B-Spline pixel filter in the renderer's extra tab to make it look a bit smoother. Otherwise no crits. Great image!

Quote from: Dune on April 09, 2013, 01:39:07 amSuper image. The shadows indeed still need some light. Especially under the few 'leaved' low plants (don't know what they are) near the road the shadows are really dark. Perhaps a 0.2 sun straight above no shadows will give these dark areas enough light? I don't know if higher translucency of the leaves will also let through more sunlight to the ground or that it only effects the object. Have to try that some day, now that I mention it.
Quote from: Hannes on April 09, 2013, 09:00:09 amMaybe it's a matter of taste or a matter of monitor calibrating . To me the shadows are perfect. After I just looked at your picture I had the impression that after your latest great improvements your landscape looks so good that the clouds may be a bit premature. At least to me. Maybe a tad more definition and contrast? I hope you don't mind my nitpicking
