These are just two renders I've posted before which I've reworked after getting Photoshop.

I've seen the bottom one before, excellent! I really like the top one.
Very good renders. I'm guessing your using Photoshop for colour enhancement and sharpening to give the images a bit more pop. Careful with the sharpening as it can exagerate the image break up lines that appear on small displacements and fine detail (evident especially in bottom pic). BTW, the top pic is my fav of the two.
I already knew these 2 renders. Still love the canyon, very neat displacements and nice use of models!
Have a great 2009, best wishes!
Love the perspective on the first one, colours are great too.
Aaah, nice to see them again! :D
I love the first one except maybe you over tweaked it a bit.
