    Winter Garden

    I decided to transform my "Summer Garden Render" into a winter scene. Don't think I'll be able to animate this as the trees in the background take way too long to render. I tried using pictures of real trees and masking them but the results were far from satisfactory.

    I've never done a snow scene before so lots of learning curves, and I'm sure there's heaps that can be improved so comments/crits much appreciated

    Looks nice, Adrian. Snow is difficult, I think you've done a great job.

    I think the grass underneath the snow might not be so green in Winter... more like a brown/grey.
    The patch of snow on top of the ivy on the left kinda seems off. Perhaps getting rid of it will save you the pain of trying to adapt it to that geometry. Otherwise, perhaps texturing the leaves is a better choice than a geometrical approach for those leaves.

    Thanks. I think it does look better without the snow on top of the ivy and I've made the grass a little less green.

    Hi, yes I have used radiosity - Image World with an HDR image plus 3 area lights, 2 fills and 1 "sun" light.

    I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean other than my lighting setup is not very good. Are you saying I should not have such dark shadows, ie the lighting should be more even?
