Thanks! I also like it a lot - I think that just tiny steps add to realism, some postpro to add camera imperfections we all used too see on photos, etc.

Yeah, Bryce is a nice tool to make abstracts, but since a year ago or sth. the landscaping art became one of my muses. I'm definitely thinking about making abstract artworks in the future, oh maybe 'making 3d fractals attempt no.3'? :giggle:

well if you like using bryce and you have a reasonable powerful pc you could try making 3d fractals in Incendia, converting them to .obj files in geometrica then rendering them in bryce ..like I have just started doing inspired by :iconnic022: it works really nicely only I haven't tried bryce as the render engine I have been using C4D instead :)

Indeed, that a nice gallery I didn't know before of. Thanks! (added to faves ;) )

I have tried once an importing classic mandelbulb to Bryce using this technique: [link]
As long as I used classic lighting, reasonable resolutions it was coming out nicely, but when I've turned on TA, put in the scene 2 TA optimized lights, and made mandelbulb out of glass... the renderer crawled to dead, even with quite decimated object.
I gave up after several days of rendering with pauses, and haven't tried it again so far. Glass material on such a complex object with Brycean non-adaptive renderer on my computer is no-go ;p

Good use of DOF, the colour saturation for the scene is excellent, I don't see any noise from the DOF, is that down to scaling or softening from GIMP?

The noise was terrible, especially on the trees. The image is rendered only with 16 samples/px. I used 3 blurred layers (blur, blur more, gaussian blur 4) and painted their transparency masks in places with noise, being careful not to destroy any sharp edges from original.

I started working very late on this image, and I wanted to finish before the deadline. The rendering took me sth like 25+ hours, which is quite long considering I had to sacrifice some qualities. For example I had to get rid of partial transparency (5-10%) of the flower (for grass it's still on and it has quite a nice effect on the image), self shadowing of the flower petals and grass clumps, and even excluded flower from the dome light (that's why it has so much contrast and I had to lighten shadows in post).

Saturation was tweaked in post. The original didn't have enough colourization I needed so instead of spending more time on tweaking light or just adding saturation I painted in soft light blending mode some pink, orange, mint green washes.

I uploaded the process/making of: [link]

Thank you for the explanation, and the link, impressive work. I am a bit useless when it comes to paint packages, which is main reason why I try to do everything in Bryce.
