Finally getting the hang of this transform input for tree colors.
Used soft shadows which helped a lot with the trees this dense.

I did a couple more snow renders.
I played with the Blender sculpting tool on the barn roof and overhang. It would show better without so much sun, but I like the sun.  :) I used bloom and soft shadows.
This is an image map heightfield for the pathway. I set displacement at negative 0.006 and tried over smooth. I wanted this to be deep snow, but I think I took out too much fractal detail unless I add a reflective shader to the snow. Looks a little too clean.
Hannes' ice and snow tgc from the Terragen Materials Library is on the metaball snow glob trees.
The snowy pine has the tree snow tgc reflection enabled.

I should have started a new series, and called it "A Different Light", but anyway.....
I have used
masonspappy Grass from file sharing
wood anemone Terragen Creative presets
Conifers shared by AP
A tree or two I made in Blender
Depending on time, I might animate the sun on this one  :)

All are 'nice' but I like 6 the best.

Really nice work. I think i like 6 the most also. They have an airy feel to them.

Thanks all!
Finally getting object paths corrected with Poseray. I despise error messages. ;D

New Spring scene, if this is not enough ground cover, what else do I need?

Thanks mhaze!
Tree population adjustments, scale adjustments
Gamma adjust
The tree of focus is supposed to have mushrooms growing on it. Trying to adjust colors after default object shaders had to be changed.

Here is an autumn colors clip tgc Autumn Colors Variation red orange

I have applied this to a tree with leaves that are mesh, not using a masked texture....I will try this with a merge shader later today

My tree has 2 leaf groups, giving opportunity to either apply clip to both leaf mesh or one, using the other with plain color or another PF set of color mixes
Thank you WASasquatch for guidance on this.

Very natural mix of colors in the leaves. Looks good! And thank you for the clip, have to give that a look as I'll be needing some fall colors soon.

Here is basically the same clip as green yellow brown on trees with masked leaves. Merge the tgc with the default tree shader so you get the shape of the leaf.

I try many things with this clip. Change scale or rotation and open the preview window on the final merge control mixing with the default tree shader. You can switch the A or B input merge inside the clip or the mode of the mix. Experiment....all the while with the final merge preview open. If the colors are too splotchy, decrease the scale with the transform input shader.
