Environment: Quiet Neighborhood

Rendered in 3D Max 5.0 and freebie Vray. My first attempt in the amazingly fast Vray. No post processing.

The 4096x3072 makes me drool.

Brazil Rendertime : 45 mins 14 sec.
Vray Rendertime: 5 mins 20 sec[

I like this, it is very good. The only thing that bothers me is the textures on the roof and the brick on the house. It looks too flat to me. But I really like plants closer to the camera (some sort of cactus) and the flying leaves are a really nice touch. Another odd thing is the flowers on the far left in the back. They look very blurry in relation to the rest of the house, but then again, I've been told I need better glasses.

When I first saw this, I thought it was a photo. WOW! realism to the max!

I do, however have to agrr to the comments already said. Also, the flower bed looks a little flat.

WOW! that is sooo fantastic. thats such good lighting! The trees, plants, everything is soo fantastic. My only critique would be gutters, shouldn't houses have gutters? I'm not sure if all houses do, its just a thought. But wow, i love it. 5 stars from me.

Thanks for all the good comments! Glad I posted it, I hadn't realized that the brick texture was blowing out on one side of the wall but not the other. Interesting since the walls are cube mapped. Overdid the blur effect in Max it looks like (blurry plants on far building) so no need to get glasses for you!!

Time to brave the snow here,

Best wishes!

awesome work...

It looks like you've manually blurred the blowing leaves on the sidewalk with photoshop, because the grass around it, and other parts, are blurred as well.

I would work on the tree in the foreground as well, as it's the only thing that stands out as unrealistic.

Stylistically, it's okay, but nothing stands out and says, "I am different, look at me!" Perhaps making a before-and-after scene, with the current being how it looked in say, 1968, and do an after scene in the current time, but make the sidewalk screwed up, lighting different, tree way bigger, grass browning in places, the plants bigger or different in places, perhaps the house in the background lost it's roof in a tornado, and it has a new roof?

I would rework a lot of the textures too... Leaves in autumn typically vary in color... Those are all orange, and the trees in the far background are green.

Lighting is your strong point, as is brazil's. I would experiment more with moody lighting, to create a better scene comp.

quite good!
i cannot agree that it is photorealistic because there are some things that ain't perfect.

- trees in the background
you should try to rotate 'em along the y-axis. they have the same

- textures
i'd recommend to create textures that fit the whole walls, roof, etc. the iterations are disturbing the scene.

- plants
they could use higher polycount

it is no big deal, the picture has a nice lighting.

Good lights!...maybe a bit cold....but very realistic.

  01 January 2003
excellent job. very close to photoreal.

the lighting does seem a bit odd, but it kinda works - looks like just before it snows.

I agree with the fact that lighting is good and gives a realistic result but the roof needs more geometry detail:
maybe adding rain gutters and differentiating tiles with roof structure (in real life those tiles would end up sliding down and killing some kids in their way)

I also agree with variating leaf colors, and one small coherence detail: big aloes don't grow outdoors in four season countries.

Nice work.

Very nice and well executed...
there are some flaws like the sky and texturing (some more bump would help)...
But i like the whole atmosfere! Some other elements would make it a killer portrait, like a bike, toys or cars... hehhe
Imagine is the key!

Thumbs down Nice job...

It looks great... what else can I say... DAMN NICE
  01 January 2003
This is excellent! The only thing I see that needs some fine tuning is the roof and the fence, the textures aren't quite living up to the quality of the render. It's superb work nonetheless
