Hi Ma'ayan. Likes your Finals very much. You really succeeded on creating some new typology of architecture as well as very fine images.
Good luck and great 2012!

Hi Thomas, very nice job and superb images! The Automn shot is something special! Makes me want to dive down in a spiral and get to know more and more (and more..) that Minas Anor of yours. Though would expected to see a kind of the same shot for a different season, I'm also totally in love with your Winter image, which actually takes me in and let me feel as I actually traveled down the city to that wonderful and interesting spot. It's a brave and smart choice, and the smart composition plays to it's favor.
Well, thank you ;-), best of luck and happy new year!

Hi Rustam, Loves you finals! There is something magical about this scene.. It can easily be an opening shot for a great movie scene. I believe in the added value of two images taken from the exact POV, it's so fun to click back and forth and try to find all the little differences (and the big, of course..), can do so for hours!
Best of luck and happy new year!

Hey Jonathan. Very nice finals. Well done technically and very full of meaning. I was working on a "Protest" thing, and my first idea was to create some similar scene, where the modern city is at the foreground and the favelas are at the back in such way the camera looks from the "rich" point of view to the protest going on at the poor side of town. In some way, your work brought to life that scene and made me very happy to look and enjoy!
Best of luck and happy new year.

But will it be facebookevised?
You got right to the heart of it.
Thank you for the music!
1 year, 5 months ago on Protest - almost done...
Thank you for following. I see what you mean. As I'm still working on the post production of this image, I would take it under consideration and for sure think about it. It's a good idea to take advantage of the architecture to emphasis the concept.

Well, that's only a test render so most of the lights are off. In general, there's some ambient light (dim environment), a direct simulating the moon and a very low sun in the front right were the street ends.
There are more lights (which are off) that play the role of artificial lights at the Piazza.
DOF will surely be moderate, though the scene isn't intended to be "real" in any way.
As this was more of a test for a camera angle, the idea is to give a feeling of sitting on the stairs with the protesting crowed.
Thank you for the smart remarks!

Hi guys. Thank you for the remarks and ideas.
For the tree: You probably right, better get rid of it...
Camera angle: is something I want to struggle with because I really want to stay on human eye level and not do something that looks like the news paper photos. So I'll try to do both and stay I level though get a more dramatic angle.
About the people: That's another challenging issue, as to pack the whole place with them, put only few (so to show more of the scene). Again, I'll probably have to find the right amount , after all it's a protest and all about the people! ;-). For sure have to PS them much more to blend nicely.
Thanks again for the smartening remarks!
Best of luck to all.

Hi Deny, Looks interesting so far! Working Rhino and Grasshopper can give you an advantage on complex modeling as you know for sure.
Looking forward for some great stuff,

Hi Philip. Nice image!

best of luck!

Hi Aubrey. Like your Image VM! I agree with the fine suggestions by sdwhitton. Would also suggest to add a Ambient Occlusion (AO) pass to emphasize the shadows, it will also do wonders to pop-up details and it's very fast to render.
Using "strip" method for render is great for high res images. by assuming you're using Vray you might also want to calculate light maps separately.
Best of Luck!

Thank you Hector for asking, and thank you Ronen for clearing this matter out. Was wondering about it too...

Hi Maayan. Thanx for watching and writing your thoughts and tips. That's very helpful!
I'm in the progress of turning all to a dusk scene, as I realized most of the protests used to take place at the evening...
There's work to be done on the panel as you mentioned and I do agree 15C has more of a "Mediterranean" light. Warm it's going to be ;-)
Taking a break from the 3D process to composit an Image with some protestors, so to get the whole look.
Will share as some as I come out with something.
Thank you, and good luck!

Hi Sigi, Like your style and this image very much.I find it fascinating that I don't even feel like trying to understand the functionality or story but only get the FEELINGS out of your works.
I can imagine how some good lightning work will make it all jump out. The orange poles will jump out and cast wonderful shadows that will add an interesting layer to the reflections on the plain.
Looking forward to some great developments!
