Just a Doodle from Sunday
« on: April 22, 2019, 12:14:35 PM »
Playing around, that's a couple of ages of the Coulter Pine XFROG freebie, some procedural grass on the far hills and grass 5 Dune in the foreground.kinda like the sparkles on the water but sorta wish I'd left it as a mirror lake as that looked quite nice as well.

I was immediately enthusiastic about the nice sparkling lake :)

I like the quite natural slightly overexposed look. Looks much more real to me than many HDR pics.
Perhaps a DoF would increase naturalness and authenticity?

thought about DoF but it would blur that lovely Pine tree....and I featured it purposely to give the impression of the distant ones which are very indistinct in the distance.

I see :)

...and if you set the focus to the forground with the pine (perhaps adding something interesting of your choice in the middle foreground) and blur the background?
