Looks nice.
I like the second one the most.
A little too much blur?

thanks!
I'm trying to hold myself back on post effects. No avail.
I know I'm overdoing it,but I like adding blur to not desirable areas, and to make it look like an actual traditional photo.

oh haha thanks man! I had to concentrate on work so I had less time fooling around in terragen but I kind of made quite a lot of renders over the last half a year.(I think the last time I was actively posting here was around January)

artistic license? to be honest I didn't notice the blur till it came up so I'd say it was a success

I'm not fond of the local blur effect, and think you should render one in high detail. One of the last bunch has very much potential.

I'm currently using the free version so this is the max resolution and detail I can render right now.

Too bad you can't render in a higher resolution. It reminds me of Dresden after the bombing.

It does look like that! Though it's always pretty depressing for me to look at these photos.
I was more inspired by the lord of the rings ruin miniatures. A more romantic version of a ruined city. :)

I agree that I like the "ruin over time" rather than "ruin as result of conflict" renders that you have done. I think that for free version, all of these renders are fantastic! Your objects are wonderful. I read somewhere about increasing the micropoly detail in the RT (default 0.25). I wonder if upping that would do anything remarkable? Again, I know it could be more, but absolutely great as is. Thanks for sharing.

There's always something new to learn. I'm not even sure what micropoly detail does in TG. I'm reading about it right now.
Btw, I gave up on the rock population thing. The displacement as a kind of bump map works perfectly on my building models, and I will have to be fine with the fakestone shader: )

Btw, we are going backward in time with the renders. I've posted the last render first and these are the earlier versions. You can see how it changed- from a grassy meadow to a mordor like ruin:)
