Title: Autumn afternoon
Post by: Cocateho on May 03, 2017, 12:35:18 AM
A first pass on this one, definitely feels like it could be tweaked a bit and things added but I'm pretty happy with the basic layout so far.

Beautiful!! And very realistic. Maybe a little bit too sharp for my taste.

Yes a really slight DoF would make it perfect! The foreground is a bit too sharp.

But anyway very beautiful!

Maybe flowers or stones poking thru the grass but lovely so far, maybe a bit sharp as hannes said but some DoF would soften that.

Stunning!! Great colors.  8)
Yeah a little dof would be great at the front.

Little update, tried to make the foreground not feel so empty, added a little dof but it's kind of hard to tell.

There's a lot to like about this. I Especially like the fall colors that are naturally/randomly  smatterings of green, yellow, red.
I think the foreground would benefit by adding something that breaks up the 'sameness' across the bottom third of the image. 
But all things considered it's a really nice render.

Great update! Dof is kinda invisible though...

This is a color corrected version, slightly warmer. I've noticed a big difference in how warm my monitor is compared to my phone screen, so I'm interested if this looks better or not to you guys than the original.

This is a very nice, natural-looking scene. I think it only needs minor tweaks to get near photorealism (IMHO). I would suggest slightly desaturating some or even a majority of the ground cover and foreground plants. Right now it looks like all the plants are very "rich" and saturated, it seems like a very, very healthy environment, perhaps too healthy. ;) I think having the trees slightly brighter than the ground in terms of color would add to realism and also give a nice compositional range, whereas now there is more tonal similarity throughout. I also think some added break-up, more of a slightly "patchy" look in some of the ground vegetation would add to the realism. There is a little bit of break-up now, but even more would be helpful I think.

Whether you make further adjustments or not I think this is great!

Looks like the eastern to midwest US in the fall where everything displays before winter. Usually the only bright, bright greens are evergreen and stubborn weeds. I think this image is spot on!

Here's  an update, I think I'll call this final for now. added PFs to the vegetation distribution and tweaked the colors. Gave up on the dof because I couldn't get something I was happy with.  Thanks everyone for the feedback!

Excellent work with the color of the trees!

A bit a pity because of the given up DoF but a beautiful work though :)

Great piece (also without the DOF). You could always try in post if you've made a depth pass.
