Quoting acjwalker: CAD is the best way, what would you prefer
Quoting Reel3d: HI
I don't think the images are that successful, I feel you have lost a great opportunity to show a play between the heaviness of the concrete and brick materials against the lightness of the glass. the glass i feel looks very dark and stodgy. Needs to have more lightness, reflection and depth. The Second image- Aerial one- does not work as you lose the depth of the elevational planes to the right, blends into one dark mass. I think a better sun angle would have worked to help with shadows? maybe a zdepth filter applied in photoshop. Not sure?
Viewpoint selection does not create a great composition?
Plants looked rushed and for a smart upmarket house where is the prestine lawn--daisy's?
Last looks like some scaling problems props.
all about selling thearchitecture of the house, not that successful.
Bit harsh, but hopefully useful.
Quoting Tempest1295: I wouldn't mind living there either, but I could settle with that car. Not a huge fan of the driveway, looks somewhat old like cobble stone roads like acjwalker pointed out.
Render Farm http://www.respower.com
Quoting MrCAD: it indeed is an awesome render..good work..love the car
I have some clients that want the best quality and would laugh at those images
Quoting Jeff Mottle: Lets play nice guys. This is a professional forum. I not going to take a side here, but I will say crits can and should be critical, even if the individual has only a few posts. The number of posts has nothing to do with ones ability, experience or skill level. Even the best images can be picked apart if one really wants to be critical. That having been said the relative anonymity and personal detachment of an online forum should not be an excuse to not use tact when making comments.
It's much better to say: "I like this and this about you image, but suggest changing this and this to improve it further"
So what if you don't like anything about an image? refuse to crit it? i like to think if you don't get any response you must be doing something wrong, art is subjective IMO.
If we dont want harsh comments i guess we should label our threads *appreciation only*.. see how many responses one gets.
Even if you don't like anything about the image, is it appropriate to say "this image is unsuccessfull or no good, sorry, it's horrible ect ect"?
Having tact is the key.. look up the def if u want.
You are welcome to your opinion, however, these were successful as my client was happy with the images and his client was also happy with the result. Ill pay your comments attention when you post some of your own work and have more than three measly posts to your name.
As a side note, the sun coming over the trees, is that all done in post? Kind of a nice surreal flavor to it - would like to know how you did it!
Also, what program do you use to make your ivy? I'm looking for something similar. Thanks!
Quoting acjwalker: Oooh hand bags at dawn.
Quoting blueroom74: Hi...I really liked your images...but I couldn`t resist to try to make them look better...instead of writting, I`m posting this one...
Quoting BVI: Hey Dejan, I cant seem to open the attachment, please try again.
Quoting acjwalker: Wow, lots of posts in a short amount of time. I think these images are great like i said before, though slight more tweaking and could be brilliant and could go towards viz of the week.
Though I do believe if you are going to criticize someone's work, you should always counter act bad points with good points just to even it out. No one likes a barrage of negativity thrown at them.
Are you planning to tweak these images BVI or do you have to move on to another project (nothing worse than not having the time to take comments into account.)
Quoting BVI: That was done in post, with Light Knoll: http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/products/all/knoll-light-factory-ps/
I'm using an ancient version of it, but it still works nicely - you can achieve the same result with some PS magic, but Light Knoll is easier.
The ivy was done with Thomas Luft's Ivy Generator http://www.guruware.at/ - we grew some if it and used premade patches of it for general areas - there are lots of generators, but this one works for us.
Quoting strider: Oh, one other thing. BVI you're going to regret being helpful to me lol
What did you use to create your grass with? Or are the daisies all PS'd in?
