yacht 153', Angelo Becattini (3D)

Title: yacht 153'
Name: Angelo Becattini
Country: Italy
Software: Lightwave 3D, Photoshop

I'd imported in Lightwave the original Rhino model (I didn't made the model).
Rendered with FPrime.
Compositing and post with Photoshop.
Backgroud photo by Silvia Apice.

This image is one of the works that I've realized (in 2007) to be published in a yacht magazine.

Really cool image, it all looks completely real. I like the waves and splashes, if they are CG they are really well done. Nice work.

The image do not come across to me at all. It looks like you took two images with different lighting, and then composed them together with yet another image (the 3D model) which it too has it's own lighting applied to it. All in all, you have like 3 different light sources and when looking at the image this just makes it look bad.

The image/photo shows that it's cloudy and even foggy yet the model receives a lot of sunlight, casting unrealistic shadows. On top of that, the rendered sunlight needs to be tweaked as well.
The bottom part of the image (the waves) seem to be from an image taken when it was sunny outside, they do not really match with the overall water. Even if the whole background is one image, it would need some more color correction and brightness adjusted in post.

The biggest culprit is the artificial lighting the 3D app created on the model, it looks too unrealistic to me and does not fit the image at all.

PS. Where's the water, splashes and other wet parts on the lower part of the ship? It's way too clean. There's no water dripping or running from the edges.

Thanks a lot to everybody!

Only the yatch is realized in CG, water (wake, splashes) is part of the background photo.
I'm working on a CG wake, but it is the future!

The image is realized composing the 3D model with a unique photo (so, just one litgh surce for backgroud and the water in foreground, and one set of light surces, to simulate the lighting of the photo, for the yatch).

compositing is very well done, how did u do water? 3d or in photoshop
Old 07 July 2009   #13
Do people not read anymore or do they simply not understand? Even in the very first post it is mentioned that the WATER IS NOT 3D!
I really do not know how people can miss understanding that.

All the water is a photo.
