New Comp

Hi There,

I did a new composition and thought of taking your suggestion and comments to improve this work. Thanks in advance for your time on this.

I like the composition , but lighting still needs some work, you have a back lit important element, the house should be way darker and the strong light should be reflecting on the water as well, that highlight will give realism to this piece, and maybe give more complexity to the house, when you make it darker we will see just a boring box shape , try something with the house overall shape, this has potential . keep it going !

If I can add, also the foreground flowers on the bottom left, are really decontrasted and hazed up, with little lighting information coming from the sun. The shadow doesn't seem to be reaching that far so it should be lit up. The dead tree in the middle ground could use a few more branches or sharp branches up near the top so it doesn't seem "cut off" as well as getting it a little sharper/back lit.

Thanks David, points noted will work on those corrections as well. Even I was not comfortable with foreground now it is looking washed out.

Thanks again

Hi, Jaime and David, Thanks a lot for your inputs and I feel now it is looking better than before after incorporating your inputs. Please check the updated version and let me know for any improvement.

Thanks again
Girish

Allo Girish,

Yes this looks much better! The tree and lighting on the tree is great, as well as the reflection on the lake which is nice and clean. The extra roof top is great, though the chimney on the top left has a little too much light wrapping around it, try to keep it more sharp lighting as it's a smaller object for cast shadow. I'm believing the overall "soft light/shadow" feel though so the cast shadow from the building onto the lake/ground/foreground doesn't bother me as much now. Much more dream like, but as long as it's consistent, it works.
