The water here seems very convincing. Less so for the dinos. As if they have no shadows. Maybe darken them will do. Good choice for ground texture, though I'm not sure if it's a sand, rock or mixed type. The fov makes me fell very..flying and the sides of the pic are almost motion-blurred. It's like I'm some ancient bug moving extremely fast forward. Good job!

The foreground look slike mud to me and I think it perfectly fits. The dinos gives the picture a focus, but somehow, they are not presented to their best advantage. Perhaps the FOV setting of the camera is just a triffle to wide. And the water, yes, it looks very convincing.

I like it
Cool mud material. It seems like the scale of the mud may not be consistent witht the size of the dinosaurs. The mud needs higher frequency in my view. The leftover footprints of the recently passed by dinos would be a nice touch and are easy to add to the mud terrain, and it will bump up the sense of environmental interaction and passing time within the scene. I agree that the water is great. Sky also. Very terragen-esque. One of the dinos is floating in the air a little bit. The chosen FOV can work if there is a foreground focus, but generally for me, it is always best to avoid those viewpoint distorions that come from Fov settings of less than 100% unless the subject is moving. Extra haze will help give that sense of scale and distance between objects. Cool
