fantastic, I really like this. I love the little plants with sub surface scattering(?) It makes it look so dynamic and real.

Thanks for your comment. Didn't use SSS, but you get kind of the same effect by playing with saturation and hue of the backlit parts.

Cheers

nice lighting, I like it. but I think the foreground is a bit too much, it occupies most area of the scene, a little bit distracting?

Thanks. You are right, the foreground covers a lot of space, but I like how it supports the more distant scenery. Maybe I'll crop the whole image a little in the and so that some of the bottom gets lost and it becomes wider.

Update:

Hi,
Actually BIG youre right.
If the image would be cropped at the middle of the plant(the one to the right), I thing it would look much better, and give the feeling of a wide view.

Does anybody know when the MP Final Entry thread will be opened?

Anyways, here is my final image:
(btw I observed huge differences as for the brightness of my image on several monitors. Especially on iMac it looks too dark, on my pc it looks brighter, although actually it should be vice versa because of the gamma differences. So im afraid that my monitor is calibrated totally wrong and it looks much too dark on other PCs, maybe you can tell me. )

wow, nice matte... about the bright and dark things..., it's probably the monitor's gamma setting...?

I tried to change them, but I can't find any settings for that, just the acer (e)mpowering technology settings, which rather screw all the colors in order to save energy. x) But I guess I'll just compare it with other pc monitors in the near future.

Thank you for the comments folks.
