There is a lot going on there. It looks great. What is the render time? Are you able to compare it to FP 2?

I dig it. Everything but the ground. I don't know, it leaves me feeling flat. Otherwise I like!

I'm reading it more as very early morning rather than midnight- the relatively warm foreground lighting and hard edge shadows imply sunlight- and the background fades to light. I really like the overall design and composition though.

The thing about moonlight is that it's actually reflected sunlight bouncing off the moon- and like all reflected light it tends to create soft edged shadows rather than crisp ones, and in general has a more limited tonal range than direct sunlight.

you know... until I read your post, it looked like nighttime. Now it looks like early morning. haha. Although... I have seen extended exposure photos of landscapes in moonlight, and sometimes the moon's light can be quite contrasty. Of course, that could also just be a result of the extended exposure...

Anyway, its a beautiful render. Love the style.

Edit: I agree about the ground... how about a stone path? That would create much more visual interest, as well as cause the viewer to focus first on the house, and then on all the other interesting stuff you have going on...

How did you do the trees?

POlas's plugin maybe?

I'll bet he used Vue.
