Hi all, in this piece I tried to represent the heat of this kind of "paradises", using 3dmax for modelling, vray for rendering and photoshop for texturing and postproducing.

Thanks for viewing

This is really nice. It's hard to accurately capture that bright mid-day sun and you've done a great job of it. The one big error I see is the scale and contrast of the palm trees behind the dock. They look scaled down from full size models or images. To appear that full and with fronds at that scale, they would need to be at least twice as tall. Also, palms don't usually grow out of the sand right at the surf line. Lastly, the black values of their inner-most parts should be nearly as dark as the shadow on the sand under the pier.

I really liked your image, I just think that a little saturation would do wonders with it! the water could be a little bluer, and the brightness should come down a little, so that the light levels in the scene could be a little more pleasing!
What would look cool also is to displace the tire tracks on the Range Rover, It seem's as though it has stood there for ages the way it is right now...
But anyway, great job! :thumbsup:

The image looks really nice, very good outdoor lighting.

here are a couple of critiques i hope that can help you:

The dark grains of the sand stand out too much, specifically under the dock/pier and the house -- and especially where the foam goes over it (it looks as if the dark grains are on top of if)

One other thing I would like to suggest is putting a little wear and tear on the Seadoo, i.e. subtle black scuff marks, maybe some scratches (if they would even be visible?) actually, a little wear and tear on the wood (pier & house) I think would really help sell it too.

again, very good work.

Just create a vraysky map and use it as enviroment Map, anyway you should look for Vray and Linear Workflow tutorials, there is a lot, try in chaosgroup website.
