Grandeur
Description: This is the Italian Villa by Alan Armstrong. The Dakar, birdies, Viki and Mike are from DAZ3D, and the armour out of 3D Game Studio. The camera is set into the villa and a mirror shows the villa from the front. Lit exclusively by a selfmade HDRI. It makes up the sky along with the haze. Rendered with quality 64 and soft shadows in less than 12 hours.

Visitors are awed by the architecture and the landscape.

Very good scene, Horo. Realistic shadows and lightning, this picture has strong feeling of such a nice place as this villa.

Aha, I see you've added some things since you posted it in the Daz forum! Love the whole effect and the view - something I really must find time to try although I'm not sure how you've actually done this as I've never attempted using a mirror image in Bryce - easy enough with PSP but I wouldn't have even thought of it for Bryce.

Not a mirror image

Thank you Alexandr and JoJA. It is easy to create nice pictures with such an exquisite model.

JoJA - just a 2D face made to a mirror opposite the camera. Not a picture inserted in PSP or other. Look closely, you'll see Mike twice, Viki is very difficult to locate in the mirror, she blends with a column.

Bryce makes perfect mirrors. Just set Reflection to 100 and set the rest to 0.

I'm stupid, I didn't read at first that model on the background is just a mirror 0_o. Now this scene became even more interesting!

This is really beautiful. The lighting, the models, the birds are all really great. I love the mirror idea. Brilliant.

Well, its a beauty, that's for sure! Army has produced a very complex and very beautiful model. One could play with it for weeks and still feel that they have not gotten all of the good shots this model has to offer.

Army utilizes the ambient glow feature with very strict reservation. I think he does a very nice job of it. I do still feel however that there are serious limitations to ambient glow, but I admit it saves time compared to rigging floating clusters and the like. Very nice placement of the sunlight, nice placements of the birds in the sunlit areas. The mirror work is extremely well considered, and like all things that are done well no one will know it is a mirror until they read the comments. Often, mirrors are given away by the light and shadows, but you were clever enough to use this set of circumstances where the shadws are not easy to determine as mirrored.

The only thing I am unsure on are the guards along the leftmost wall. They seem somehow transparent, or maybe glowing a bit too much. They do not seem solid for some reason, are they spirits? Nice rump on Victoria. After taking a quick break I assume you will resume your jog?

Thanks for your comments. Yeah Rashad, I should have get rid off of the armour. I developed the scene plop rendering things into it and later changed my mind on the way what I wanted to tell. They are redundant now and look out of place.
