This is my first attempt at doing a tropical landscape.The building and all vegetation except for the immediate foreground trees and plants was rendered in Thea Render.(The boat is also photoshopped.

I have previously rendered this building and placed it in more rural landscapes but I have always wanted to try a sea-scape.I hope to do a few more from some different angles.

Great job on integrating the boat in the scene. If you had not pointed out that it was PS'd in, I would not have thought anything about it, given your abilities.

Thanks guys,I can never get tired of positive feedback!
I have attached the original render(except for the birds in top right) before I added the additional elements and effects.I actually prefer this one as the proportions are much better and looks less cluttered.

The grass was done using the instancing tool in Thea and brushed around the landscape.The post produced images have additional supplemental grass added in photoshop.

Here are 2 more images,the first from a different vantage point and the second a crop of the first showing the detail at 1:1 scale as the image was reduced in size for the forum.
The light in the first image was accentuated on the left of middle ground to suggest rays of light coming from the low sun.

Very beautiful. I usually paint landscapes. I am gearing up to do my first 3D lanscape and this scene is very inspirational. Can you tell where you got those palm trees please? And can you give me advise on how to incorporate a natural background. I'm using Kerkythea right now but I plan on buying Thea really soon. Thanks.

A dusk shot,again rendered in Thea and post proccessed in photoshop.

[EDIT]
I have also attached a cropped version with some slightly different colour tones(more purples and reds) but also a more rectangular proportion which I think works better for this image.The second image is also less grainy as it was from a thea render that was allowed to render for longer,thereby reducing the amount of grain in the image.

Beautiful work! :thumb: I really like the grass, although I've never cared for palm trees (they kept stationing me in Fla and I got sick of them, I like trees that provide lots of nice shade. I loved the big old Banyon trees down there, with all the Spanish Moss hanging down)

That's it I'm over it! Not looking at your posts anymore! Every freakin time I just get depressed - 1. I want to visit your scenes and 2. I feel like a monkey's arse as a render artist!
