Looking to Heaven by Sgtgrandpa Looking to Heaven by Sgtgrandpa
Version number 8. Could never get the lighting right. And the water color is too dull and distracting. But I love the clouds, surf map is ok.

Cold and alone was the idea, so I guess I got it on that one. Now I wish I made my art pack submition.

do it again, lower your gama and raise the t-stop. gama is in renders settings and t-stop is in camera. Then change the background colors in the sun settings to taste. And go to image size and lower the meter point to 10 or lower, if not there already. Percent cloud cover in the sun settings I set to either 5 for lack of contrast or 30 for severe contrast. Try it agian and raise the water level to 73, u will like that I feel. Add an iceshelf or surf too. U can do it. chuckle, hope I helped. If you want my input upload to imageshack.com and sned me a note with the link. Once on DA we can not accept it. sorry my good friend.

This might help if I had any idea of what you were talking about. I knew I couldn't enter it, because I changed the POV, that is why I went ahead and posted it.

gama is in the render settings button / options. Its a slider bar. The lower the number the darker the image overall.

T-stop is in the camera button. Its a slider bar too, the higher the settings the brighter the image. I work both in concert by lowering the gama (darker) then I raise the T-stop to compensate and then just play.
Its just really that easy. Sorry for the long confusing note.
Try something again. There is lot's of time.
Love :love: steve :wave:

I understand what you mean now. I just don't feel like fooling with Terragen until I get to feeling better. I have two that are ready and I am not trying any more. If I can just remember to send one in.

So try a couple with my ideas, or just pick one and send it in. I would be very sad to not have you in the art pack, who cares who is the best, just be a part of it. Please!!
