Nature studies for a game using SpeedTree

These pictures where rendered for prototyping a ingame scenery. I have used max with only 1 direct light and the standard fog. no other filters where used. The shadows where calculated with Speedshadow.
Polycount is 15000 with no lods.

Scenery 1: Sunny river

Scenery 1: Rainy river

Scenery 1: River Overview

Scenery 1: River Detail

Scenery 2: Misty, dark, spooky woods

Critics and comments are very welcome !

Life is a campfire !

Andre they look very nice indeed. Very nice atmosphere, especially the sunny river.

Only crit would be the shadow seems too 'black' without any detail showing or colour information in some areas and that the leaf detail is beautiful but somehow the detail on the tree trunks seems too plain in comnparison.

Is the polycount the about the number of triangles you would expect to run in the game engine? Or are you planning to LOD the trees down, especially as you pull the camera back? The scenes shown are quite tightly focused, have you done any tests over a larger area? It would be interesting to see those.
