Lildragon - Thank you so very much Lildragon! I really am speachless to receive this award!
I will definately use this on my website...

Torbjorn - Yes I made the water as well. As a matter fact the whole thing (yacht and ocean) are animated and will be used for the animation that will be shown on the Ft. Lauderdale tradeshow.

Aje - Thank you much for your time to point out these important issues! I totally agree with the spec. I acually almost put spec all the way down when I use raytracing (or HS) because spec doesn't really excist. What about if I put raytracing little up and change lighting slightly? "Drop ambient lighting" Yep it is too much. Was set to 10 percent and a backlight was too much. Good eye!

Dotpainter - I know what you mean with the caustics on the water. There is but the scuds and displacements there might make it fade or even dissapear. I could turn down the luminosity of the scuds.

In general - This was actually not designed to become a still image but rather an animation for that trade show. With all these great pointers however I'm sure that it will look much better! The due date is Januari 10th so I wll post that new animation on the site. The animation will be done together with my business partner Phil. So He will get then credits for this as well.

Thanks again for all!!!

The image is really fantastic... Though I do agree that it seems a bit smaller scale-wise than it should.

Maybe you could try putting in a bit more churning water along the width of the hull and out the back... dunno if that would help, but it's something that I feel is missing... but I could be wrong.. heh

really look great tho... Tried some boats and water a few years back and they didn't look like this.. heh

Great water and great lighting. My only comment in addition to what others have said would be to make the texture on the bottom of the ship a little darker, or possibly a different reflectance value for the area which would be wet from the water spray.

Really cool, but something really bothers my eyes.

Please take a look at the second picture. There are min. 2 lightsource which can be seen! One of them is emitting from left of the nose line of the boat, the one which is casting shadows. That is the Sun, I guess which (at this position if the shadows are so long) could be a bit orange or yellowish, just a bit.

But that's not that important than the second Sunlight (which is white as well, maybe?) and lits from the front and reflects on the water! It shouldn't be there! In nature scenes there should be only one lightsource which causes specularity IMHO, which is the Sun, and the others only diffuse. Do you see what I mean?

One more thing; add a little blooming to very lit parts. I don't know LW, but I'm sure there is a post-render effect like that.

In overall, very nice job, great modelling, good attention to detail!

to... give a referencer in you image without changing to much..so you can guess how big the boat is

make a.... how do you call it in english..

a thing that is in the water and floats..with a light on it..

it would suit the inveroment..caus of the islands.. must be hard for ships..and i dont see any light tower..

so make a thing in the water

This is very nice! The water is definately closest to photoreal
