Vue d'Esprit, PS6.

I also posted this in Critiques.

Any comments? Suggestions?
This wasn't a long, thought-out process. I was rendering with Vue and then began adding until this theme struck me.

A not-so-old-fashioned river baptism!

Cheers!

I love the mountains. Vue d'Esprit seems to have it over Bryce when it comes to nature and natural looking images. I have never tried it.

The only thing I would change is maybe the blue to a yellowish color (Pick one out of the sky?) The water is reflecting the yellow and the sky is reflecting yellow.

I want to run to the critique section and see what they said. I am too new at this stuff to really give an educated opinion.

Thanks Shehaub and Digi!

I like the way this turned out. Mostly rendered in Vue, then the figure was added via PS. The "baptism fire" was a straight airbrush.

Yes, Shehaub, I prefer the way Vue renders compared to Bryce. Both have their strengths, but I like Vue just a little bit better.

Also picked up Terragen and I'm looking forward to working with that!

Thanks again!

I just wanted to mention that I like the composite that you did for the sci-fi project. Great scene. Now if you could only find some of those big foam boulders that were on every planet in Classic Trek http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif!!!

Your son seems to taken the old Trek maxim to heart, "There are few problems that exist in the Universe that cannot be solved with the careful application of a phaser on full!!" http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/evilgrin.gif

Making it so,
