Round #2 Feedback

bimalbose: Overall your scene has an inviting ambiance though the blue light coming in through the window seems a little out of place especially with what appears to be a dark environment outside. I'm also noticing the amount of DOF you have right now is miniaturizing the scene and could be decreased. The ceiling is really dark and could use some light on it. It doesn't have to be much but the contrast brings my eye right to it. Finally, it would be nice if the light had a little more focus, whether it were on a few objects here or there or areas of the room. Keep going!

esswar4u : Welcome! The first thing that I notice is that the ground is very confusing on the eyes. The colors in the floor are too similar to the colors of the chairs and tables and they are lost because of that. From this camera angle it might be better to use the hanging lights instead of the windows for the illumination. The hanging lights frame the image well and if they lit the scene too it could improve the image some more.

colt: Great image! Overall the image is very bright and low contrast, which isn't an issue, but because of this the objects that are of higher contrast really stick out and are a little distracting. Since the stools and the chair legs are very dark my eye is immediately drawn to them. See if you can lighten those objects a little bit.

tuffmutt1 Nice atmosphere! I'm noticing there's a light leak in the back corner of the scene, right in the center of the image, not sure what's causing that. The objects in shadow could use just a little more defining with rim lights and maybe some specular hits. One area I'd like to see that extra shaping would be the crate and rod in the bottom right corner of the image. Just make sure to keep it very subtle but still define the shape.

Rich-M Lighting Challenge WIP1

Hi, here's my first challenge WIP post- I'm basing my studio off the room I had art lessons in when I was in 6th form so its going to be a bit of a mess when its finished! The shaders and object placement isn't final, so the room looks a bit bare at the moment.

I'm going to add a clock to the wall and lots of sketches and paintings to the display boards I've put at the back, as well as some other items being used by whoever is using the room at the time.

It's the first time i post here, i'm really a begginer

I wanted an abandonned place felling with the spooky atmosphere of the mannequins. It's in progress by the way, i'm not satisfied by all the textures ans the mannequins are too cleans.

I use Blender with Yafaray.

Really nice bimalbose... the dof still looks a little awkward though.
