Title: Atmospheric W's I P
Post by: bobbystahr on September 06, 2016, 03:43:52 pm
Testing out stuff still and I thin the image with Experimental atmo bloom and soft small starburst has the closet connection to non camera viewing. C&C welcome here....

The flares-stuff is one thing but this WIP is absolutely predestinated for experiments with DOF, don't you think?  :)

(I like the the first version a bit more - but I must admit I am almost addicted to sunflares  :D  )

I think I like the first one better too, though I still think the starburst shouldn't be a 'trick' in every render. In photography I always strived not to have them, but I also admit I do like them sometimes, if not overdone. DOF is a nice idea, but the grass is very nice too...  what kind of grass is it?

I like the first one more as well. And DOF would be great here, indeed. Looks very good, Bobby.

If the clouds and the atmo in the second one weren't so much overblown it would look good.
Just a half lower settings might do it maybe.
But i like them too.

There is your grass 7 from your collection and the tall one is Walli's Dry Grass 5 I think...one of his first dry grass packs. Yeah I may give DoF a try as that tall grass has a quirk I'd like to have become less obvious.

Yeah that pissed me off as well, started the render and went out for a bit and that was what was waiting on my monitor when I got back. I think I tried both types of bloom in that one. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Here's a small version I'll render while I sleep. Slightly changed the PoV but liking the DoF and the clouds are no longer blown out...that was the EA bloom and I went back to the regular bloom with soft starburst.

Great, Bobby!! That DOF looks quite realistic. Beautiful and calm image.
