Title: 1000 year Woods
Name: Dennis Fraser
Country: USA
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

Hello all. I wanted to convey a peaceful, out of the way, story book setting. A place where a never before seen creature calls home and is untouched by the world around them.

Rendered in 3D Max/Vray, with retouching in photoshop. The scene is animated, but is taking 30 hours a frame. (EEK!) Its mainly due to the volume lighting, and I'll have to break up the image in various passes. I am cleaning the scene up as I write and hope to have the animation times reduced by the end of the month.

Thanks for looking and critiques are always helpful ( I think I have been staring at this image FAR too long and likely missing something).

Very very beautifull!

Wow! I love it!

I hope I can help some with critique:
I think there should be some more contrast, it kind of seems very neutral all throughout. I think more contrast would make the foreground elements pop more.
The only other thing I might comment on is the foreground leaves on the left, the lighting seems too bright for their location. I think...
Hope that was helpful, Keep up the great work! :)

Thanks all for the great comments.

Here is the wire frame view. Small, but I'll replace it as soon as I get some extra space...

Thanks again!

I like it. Great (albeit a little generic) woodland setting. BUT man the colors are right. Works for me.

I really like this piece. Great mood and atmosphere. I want to live there as long as the neigbores are nice.

Nice lighting and color. Very magical and inviting. Certain details of some elements are curious and make me want to see more. I want to walk around that house and look inside the door. Well done dude! I really like it.
