The only issue I see is that it's not really about a road, and the contest is specifically a Road Contest. There's a gravely area, but I should change the POV to make it more as the centerpiece and work it out to be a proper road, be it a gravel road. That would be my advice.

The road can either be main subject of the image or a supportive element of the image subject.


Cheers,

Still, if there's a jury or poll, a clearly visible road may have more chance. That would be a large part of my criteria if I were to judge.

Thanks for the input guys... The theme is 'roadside' so I will keep that in the forefront of my mind( and image ) !
Cheers

thanks Danny and J, concocting ideas as I type... onwards and upwards!
a new pov may solve the missing metalwork... maybe a new car... not sure yet...
cheers

ok, so I have been tinkering a little - I found this place, I quite liked it so, I tinkered some more.... there are some things that are wrong, these can be fixed easily enough I hope.... what do you think?
cheers
Jason

Yeah looking good. The breakup of the road is very very nice!
The stones/pebbles could be a bit smaller and use a bit more detailing, perhaps.

What else are you planning?

Cheers,
Martin

Looking good Jason. Maybe a beam of sunlight shining down on the road would be effective as well.

Thanks Martin and Bob, the on the 'things to do' list include - fixing the fake stones-scale/textures etc...
Removing the stray daisies from the ruts - fix the tree placement -maybe remove or replace it- not sure yet? - increase exposure/GI settings, maybe some random weeds, a fence and gate before the field/ditch.... It has been said that TG tinkering never ends...how true indeed... More updates to come soon....
Cheers
Jason :)

Hi folks!
Here is the latest iteration:
Very minor pw =  saturation/contrast/jpegging...
Still some tweaking to do...
What do you think so far?
Cheers
Jason

your last render looks great, :) though the only problem i have with it is the pov, its low enough to ground where you can easily pick out the fake stones

though the road does look pretty good already.
Someday... I will own a pickle shooting condiment train.
