Thumbs up

It's "terrible" yet strangely beautiful at the same time. Very rich environmental effects. I question where the light eminating from the street level is coming from, but it adds to the mystery so I like it. It always amazes me how detailed your cityscapes are. Your patience for the rendering process must be endless.

thanks for the comments guys

Dangeruss..I did take a lot of liberties with the light in this one..I was interested in getting a nice silhouette of the building against some city steam/smog,so any realism in the lighting was thrown out the door

thanks again

a healthy dose of greebling formed the base ...some buildings & scifi props are taken from other models I've made,setting up the 3d aspect of this shot took less than a day thanks to reusing the older elements

Great image Stefan. I see you are experimenting a little bit with different atmosphere and colors ... this is very warm image compared to the rest of your works. Is it possible to get a few inside informations about passes and compositing.
