Very imaginative picture (one of the most creative here with Song for the Earth), great concept and lots of cool, fun details. Good use of the SDL for positioning elements and "overdetailing" an image. On the minus side, the composition is a little off and the colouring could have used more development cycles: poorly contrasted greenish, greyish, reddish hues on a mauve background are not very attractive when seen from a distance.
A great show of POV-Ray's power and technically a very good image. In my mind there are a few things that could be improved artistically, mainly the composition of the image. If the camera was positioned closer to Victoria's World I feel the image would have had greater impact. The detail level is extremely high and there is good use made of POV-Ray's features, but the predominant use of external models (e.g. Victoria, the Dosch houses, Chris Colefax's Lens Effects include, Gilles Tran's MakeGrass) prevented it from making it further in my mind. The lighting is interesting and balanced, but I would suggest trying to increase the small-scale contrast as the details start to disappear without it when the image is viewed at smaller sizes. Overall, something to be proud of, and something you shouldn't stop working on now - try playing with a few different compositions and see what happens!
Very detailed, it was obvious a lot of care had been taken over this one. I actually
liked the use of colour in this one a lot. The use of the birds
and depth of fields helped give the image the feeling it was coming out of the screen.
First rate effort.
This image has a kind of soft fairytale feeling to it. The attention
to detail is excellent (the more you examine the image, the more
details you discover). On the other hand, the image is not extremely
impressive at a first glance at a small scale, which may diminish its
wow-value. Also the average coloration of the image is perhaps a bit
dull. But nevertheless a great image.
