View Full Version : Man's Door to Nature's Door

( is my second entry for the competition. I modeled the doors in XSI, and composed it with the nature shot in After Effects. I wanted to have a nice fusion between architecture and landscape. Hope you like it; comments and critiques are welcome, as always. Thanks.

it almost seems lacking in the architecture department because all there is representing architecture is the 2 doors

Yeah I know what you mean. I kinda was going for that though; I just wanted something really simple and a little different. What would you suggest about adding more architecture to this particular piece? Thanks for the comment, by the way.

hmm.. maybe having the camera a little further back so you can see a wooden floor, with water seeping in a little over it from the cave - so it is more implied that the door is part of a room/building rather than just a door.

also, id make the water seeping over it so you couldnt see a sharp definite end to the floor, just a nice fluid merging of the two ideas you are bringing together.

but again, its already a nice image

I like your concept; I'll definately play around with it and give it a shot. Thanks for the comments and crits, they really are appreciated.

trey c, i agree with what others said here. another option is to make the cave opening a little bigger to accomodate wider view to see the world outside. and maybe on the scene outside show some vegetation or some man made structure. to do that, draw the camera near the door to show the main attraction outside. i like the water effect it makes the viewer think and wonder whats going on in the scene. your are doing good!
