    The second one is picturesque in its photoreal-ness. A cool image.

    The first, the dof hits me as too extreme -- it makes it look like a toy/real small.
    Nice work.

    Thanks for your comment !

    The DoF effect of the second render is "pure" LightWave DoF (thus the noise still there in the image...) and the fstop setting is set to 1.4, which is small but still realistic.
    The fact is the camera is very low (around 0,25m) and the grass blades just in front are quite blurry then.

    I'll try a more common setting @ 4.0 instead of 1.4 for the fstop and see how it looks like.


    Cheers,
    Laurent aka Tartiflette.

    Lovely clean renders and the lighting on the second one especially is very good. I don't like the design of the building though but that's just a personal opinion and doesn't detract from the quality of your work :-)

    Thanks guys, much appreciated !

    As for the design of the building, i don't know if it's that cool as well but i thought the photo this render is based on was great with really interesting lighting effects, making an overall very appealing image.
    And it was still quite easy to reproduce so that was completely inline with my natural laziness !

    Thanks Paolo, coming from a Master of archiviz in LightWave it means a lot.

    nice work, interesting compositions! ...congrats! ;-)

    only picky (lol) remark is about concrete/travertine ground plan texturing in second image, maybe better use cubic mapping?

    He he, very sharp eye, congratulations !

    Yes, it was a mistake on my part, did a simple planar projection first and forgot to edit the settings before doing the "final" render.
    Might do a last render then, first to make it a bit bigger and second to redo this part !


    Thanks for your comments,
    Cheers,

    Very nice..

    Here are some files with tweak suggestions that would push the second image a little more.

    Thanks for taking the time to tweak the render !

    Some nice recovery you did there, even more impressive with a "poor" 8bit image, congrats.
    I might "steal" some technique for my "final final" render !

    Those are very pleasant images.
    I really like the balance of transparency and reflection on the glass. After years of doing this I still sometimes spend ages tweaking glass when it is prominent like here.

    Did you use Dielectric?

    Yes, the reflection part was a tricky one to achieve, and, as you probably already guessed it, it's not dielectric as it doesn't work that well for that kind of render.
    It's just a trick with a completely transparent surface, along with a fresnel and a multiply nodes to adjust reflection to my liking.

    I might post the scene with surfaces (but without trees and some textures which are not free and thus can't be redistributed) if it's of interest to someone ?

    Laurent aka Tartiflette.
