The sky looks beautiful but the rest of the scene doesn't do it for me. The water doesn't look quite right, my eyes can't help but notice the apparent rows and columns of the waves. I get a definite sense of repetition which implies a simple and probably easily improved upon algorithm for creating the waves. The dolphins don't look like they belong in the scene, they are not interacting with light, water, wind, etc. If you work on the piece more you may get more replies but honestly it needs something more than what you've got. I'm not artist but that's my two cents.

The concept seems good...but the sky lacks a little depth..the lighting looks very harsh....and the dolphins do look like they were just placed there....

Very nice looking one! :)

Some suggestions:

- Make the water less... "dense", I mean, waves in real ocean are not so soft and repeating. Try adding a noise bump map to the water surface and a less repetitive displacement map (if this is the way you did it :))

- Reduce the ambient light to make those dolphins more dark.

The sky is outstanding :thumbsup:

Keep up the good work!

Did you do this with Dreamscape? Dreamscape's wave's are very repetitive unless you crank up the grid size but still...it can get repetitive.

The water could use more work though

The 2nd picture, the water looks like its made out of "liquid silver".
Make the water a little dirter.

Also there's too mcuh reflective properties in the water.
Far in the distance, you would not see that much 'reflectiveness'.

Reflections shoudl be a little past in the middle and a little more closer to the Camea.

Futher the distance, th lower refectivenss properties.

But it still looks nice.
keep it up.
