Hi there!

This is a reworking of a commercial job I did a couple of months ago. I wasn't satisfied with the result, though the client was, so here it goes. (Also I have new monitor and pc and it seemed the last monitor i used were too bright)

The blueprints did give me some indications how the topology of the land was ( the curving downwards right), but it was up to me mostly.

Been using LWF method in Vray 1.5 RC 2 here and it looks good and its fast but there are problems rendering heavy scenes with displacement and so on.
Rendering time 800x600 was approx 2 hours on 1 AMD Opteron 270(dual thread), 2 GB RAM.

Vegetation (trees, hedge,flowers) is Onyx and I've also used some library-plants and a few library models.

Some post in PS mainly color correction and DOF with the cool DOF Pro plugin.

Everything else is modelled, textured, lit and rendered by me. No cad files were used here.

Anyway, thought this turned out pretty ok, so what do u think?
