sunset withrays

Gday

This pic was supposed to be for the challenge until I reread the conditions- the terrain is as the original tgd - water and fake stones added - but I changed the sun position - will make another for the challenge

Looks like it was upscaled alot. Looking at the full size shows horrible pixelation.

Where do you see the pixellation?  There's a bit of grain in the atmosphere, but other than that it looks good.

Look at it full size. 10:1 your browser resized it to fit in the window. The full image is 2960*2220 pixels. I could be wrong, but I doubt you have a monitor even close to that resolution ;)

Ah, yes.  Thanks ;).  It does indeed look like it was upscaled.  However, when viewed in the downsampled browser window, it does look pretty good.

Still the upscaled version ;) Btw, you can edit the original message, delete the file and upload the new file (just a tip).

Gday  dhavalmistry

Reflection on the water - Make the sun altitude very close to the horizon e.g 2.5 degrees should give the sun reflection across a lot of the water and have a play with the water shader adjustments to give the effect you want and clouds to suit your taste
