Bryce5.5 beta rc4. As the MKI (please reffer to that for more details on models and software employed) but gone over entirely to procedural volumetric mat for the core of the daisy. DOF in evidence again with the usual impact on the render time - yawn - hours and hours in other words. One additional light source - as before. I was going for photorealism, but half way through the build this interesting mix of blank standard grey background and textured models just came up and I liked that better. So it's a half and half and half done image. It works for me, what do you think?
