Title: Golden
Post by: zaxxon on April 07, 2016, 02:24:56 PM
I wasn't sure if Speedtree objects would be allowed, but I was intrigued by the 360 degree challenge and was working on an image just in case. Here's a mostly done spherical render and a 'normal' render at 0 degrees. No back story to speak of; just terrain, sky and foliage.

You know what I think of your work, Doug, but I'll repeat it again here; wonderfully natural. And great light! And thanks for cranking the handle  ;)

Beauty, I had a suspicion ST would give a thumbs up to their inclusion and share with PS....actually a good move on their part, and a bonus for TG  ST users.

I am admiring the colors and light. Immersive and somewhat like a painting.

I love the texture variations on the floor. The colors and light are pretty. An image I'd like to see with the maximum resolution to see vegetations etc.

Yikes! Time is running out and my Frankenstein-Render insists on slowly shambling along... 6 (12 virtual) cores at 100% pulling 46.7 gigs (out of 48) now for over 72 hours. Oh well. Thanks for the comments, and I do appreciate the "painterly" comparison, it's how I see it as well. Here's a 'standard view' crop render at 300 degrees, lots of custom Speedtree shrubs. Fun exercise and lots of great images being created!

Thanks, always nice to receive kind feedback from my friends on the Forum! I'm entered (after a little drama  ;)). This was the longest single image render since my Amiga days, 101 hours! Well, I'm not much on Art Competitions, but this was indeed a fun project. My Grandfather was a fine photographer in the mold of Ansel Adams, he even had a wooden shooting platform on his vintage 'woody' station wagon; Rollei's, Hasselblads, et al. One of his 'rules' was that whenever you had a 'good' shot, always look directly behind you and you might just find a 'great' shot. I still school myself to do just that with a camera: this was the first time I had done that in a landscape render. So all in all a fun time working with a 360 degree image. Here's another 'standard' view after the fact.

I like that!  :) :) :)
