Started off as a woodland scene but I thought the flower color turned out really good so I focused in on that. Been a while since I played with depth of field.

Ditto! Very well done! Maybe lighten it a tad, not too much?

Upped the brightness a little. Must be a difference in monitors, doesn't seem particularly dark on my end. Glad y'all like it!

Very nice render! I think it's a bit subdued in tone as well, but it's very appealing nonetheless. Maybe some more reflections on the leaves and some highlighted ares (maybe even raindrops), can give it some 'sparkle'.

Absolutely marvelous!

Ulcos idea with the raindrops is really good, too!

Super image, ditto raindrops.

What I like best is the color scheme. Basically two colors, red and green and combinations of those two. Works very well.

I remember the topic of raindrops or dew on leaves coming up a long time ago, thought it was interesting but never actually tried it out.Can't say I have much idea how to go about that other than maybe a map for the reflectivity?

luvsmusik - It is indeed the prairie rose!One of my favorite tgo's although I don't use it enough.

If it's one object in front you could try a population of raindrops, otherwise indeed a very small dotty mask with some bump and high reflectivity on the leaves.

yup for sure. That's a model Walli made for me when he solicited models to make when he was bored...looking great here although in real life it's a bloody weed on the prairies, only good for a week when you harvest the petals to make Rose Wine...LOL

Beautiful! I like the dew idea if you can incorporate that.

Depth of field nicely separates the subject from the background. Beautiful rendering, though I agree it looks a bit dark. Highlights look fine but shadows are blocked up. If you didn't use path tracing, would you consider trying it? Might open up the shadows a bit.

So did a test on another object to try the raindrop idea. I ended up merging a raindrop texture onto the leaf picture to make a mask. Works okay, took some tweaking to get it looking semi natural.
