Bryce5.5 - distance masked and filtered in Corel Photo paint for a speedy blur effect. Trying to get that certain quality of light you only get in the morning. Grass and flowers and broadleaf plant came with the object libruary of 5.5. The terrain and foreground trees taken from earlier bluebell woods image.
Incredible, great contrast. Bright background and dark trees, catches that effect... perfect.

Woodlands (blue bell version) MkII without Bluebells. Well, it is different, the camera slightly moved. I judge that from the path, the slope, the rocks at right and particularly by the slanted trees. Camera probably moved backwards.
Nevertheless, excellent work and Nights4ar is quite right that it catches the feel perfect. The faint mist patches from the humidity (morning thaw?) rising up is outstanding. If this wasn't so damn early in the morning, I'd be tempted to go for a walk.

It is an extraordinary work you've done there! At first I thought the thumb image was a realistic pic you made for the contest, but in the second... I think this is one of the best images you have posted here. Someone mentioned something 'bout the effect, the feel, well... The Feel is REAL I can tell :)) 5/5

This picture reminds me of some illustrations of Middle Earth by Alan Lee. Depending on the context you look at it, it is soothing or fearful. Outstanding!

The "feel" comes from a volumetic cloud placed right amongst the scene, giving it a certain patchyness that fools the eye into thinking there is more going on with the light than there really is. My biggest problem is that me and the tree editor cannot get along - and I can't access the file now because of that bug!

I have no words left in my mouth that can explain what i feel about this picture. It is just amazing!!
The light, setting, render.... just everything is perfectly set up to make it feel like i`m actually there. I have noticed your works from the early beginning, and u are just a wizard in Bryce.
Nice webpage to btw ;=)
And again, amazing work!!!
