Hey thanks, sorry for the small render. Just wanted to post something since there seems to be so little submissions for such a nice scene. Im a bit amazed theres not more ppl posting.

Thats the way i usually do it (fog in post) but i wanted to take the oppurtunity to test drive vray's enviroment for a little and im really liking it. The extra render time in not a big problem (yet).

Anyway, heres a bigger version from this night's draft render.

Im really not liking how the water turned out and i seem to have some normal smoothing problems on it, so thats something ill work on next. I have some idea to try something special with it. Hopefully it'll turn out ok.

Also im probably going to make the lamp light inside the ship a bit less intense (i dont think that oil lamps and candles would produce such intense lighting, even though i think it looks cool).
Maybe i'll scale the ship up. 7m, as it is now, doesnt seem to be correct and that may also fix the light intensity (hopefully).

Thought I would post WIP to get some feedback on the shot.

[EDIT] forgot to mention the ocean was rendered using maya's ocean shader

Hello everyone,

I've been following the Lighting Challenges for a couple of years and finally had the time to participate in one of them. This is my first WIP of Captain's Log May 12th. Critique is welcome on all aspects of the render. This is an early render and currently I only have three spotlights more or less randomly placed (oh ok, I did think about it a little bit, but still...). the ocean is aaOcean with mental ray's WaterSurface-shader + foam. No spray yet...

Thumbs up

Really nice perspective, the great waves are coming out very well, looks a bit like a mountain to me, I will be very interested in how you got that foam work in such a detail !

Really nice mood !
You can interpretate very much in your image, it actually looks like a final to me.
Just the light from the interior bursts out a bit too much for my taste.

I hope I´ll find some time to enter the challenge, too, it´s a very interesting subject with great submissions that far !
