Exactly.  I was at first treating it like it was a graphic, since the URL was in an email from a graphic newsletter I get.  I was examining it and looking at all the cloud edges thinking, "Dude, that's too much fractal."  LOL

It is funny how playing with this stuff changes the way one looks at pictures. I'm not sure it's a good thing - I wonder how much simple appreciation I lose by getting too analytical.

I must admit that I am the type of sad person who finds himself looking at a beautiful sunset and thinking "hmm, what do you reckon, increased red decay, and I wonder what I'd have to do to a power fractal shader to get those clouds like that...?" or "those displaced patches of heather or gorse or whatever... over there on the hillside, I wonder if you could use the deep snow clip for that but change the colour and add a bit of displacement to the top layer?"


Thats how sad I am....  :'(

Oh, trust me, I do that all of the time - it drives my family insane when I verbalize it ;).

The danger is that we try to get our renders looking "realistic" but end up with something which in a photo gallery would be quite boring because the most interesting photos are often of things that look unrealistic. For example:

I see the pictures in my browser. Actually, I'm unsure if I should insert these images to show directly in my message or post a link because obviously they're not mine. Although the original location can still be found.

I think we should have a forum area for reference stuff.

dhavalmistry, I can't see anything where you linked to.
