Into the wild ( + Palm trees silhouette)
« on: November 11, 2016, 06:17:24 am »
Hello my friends,
lately I have started doing some nature shots and would like to share with you.as the modeling process takes a long time  :-X I'll share them one by one.
here is the first one.an old wooden boat alone floating for weeks where everything stands still, there are some ongoing activities somewhere near quietly ... so I call this shot deadly silence  :D
let me know what you think,hope you like it

Wow man ! Your work has improved a LOT. Your last images looked very realistic. Only thing i have to say about this one is that if that paddle is submerged i don't think it would be that visible. That kind of water is darker beneath the surface i think. Keep rocking !

Great render Hossein,  love everything, only crits would be what Nico said re: the paddle and the water 'splash' is too uniform somehow, a little turbulence is needed I think :)

I could also think of a back story as to what's happening here but I cannot say in this thread ;)

Personally I think you're pretty darn close here. The misty layer tends to suggest there is no breeze, and it has that autumnal feeling about it. The lack of a breeze means no disturbance to the clear cool waters of the lake. A lake that is full of deep water oxygenators and the sedge/reeds would clear that water to be glass like. I have seen many a lake with water as clean as mountain springs. The whole effect would indeed leave an eerie silence.

There is still lots that can be done here, lower camera angle to offer better scene depth, early sun rise coloured sky to add that early morning chill feeling whilst giving that warm glow that you can feel on your skin etc. So yeah I like this a lot and can see lots of ways of working this scene, a truly reusable environmental asset!

Whaoouu ! Really good job Hossein !
I think the water is too clean for a pong or lac? perhaps add stain on it ?
But i love your image  ;)

man I think I can guess what you have in mind about the backstory but I'm not 100% sure  :D

I prefer the early morning sky, adding the flock of birds works too. Dropping the transparency of the water has lost the tranquility of the scene and made it a dark foreboding lake that has an almost oil slick type of appearance. Which is great if that's the effect you're after. Lakes are a difficult subject... Lower camera angles give less transparency but more surface reflections. Higher angles and you get the opposite, so then you need water movement as in waves or flowing water to disrupt the transparency and refraction .... It's really awkward to put into words. But if you stand at a lakes edge and look down towards your feet you will have more transparency to the water than if you look out to the horizon where the reflections and any movement plus angle of refraction etc all disrupt the transparency to almost zero.

It might also pay to have a strong pin light that's set somewhere between 4.1K to 5.5K to give that golden light. Creating environments is not easy with KS so you have given yourself a painful project, but one that's certainly worth it :)

Hi Hossein.

Very interesting project!
I don't much to add from what has already been said, except that I probably would try to move those birds a bit to the left to avoid centering everything composition-wise.
