Ryan's TipJar

It seemed like a good idea to attempt an autumn version of "Sliver of Sun" even though it's a high altitude landscape and the trees aren't your usual colorful deciduous varieties. Honestly I think it turned out OK but it isn't really my favorite Autumn render. I hope you enjoy it regardless!

"Welcome to the Garden Island"
My fiancee and I have been to Kauai twice, and this beautiful render really captures the spirit of the garden island. As we took a fixed wing plane tour around the island we flew over a vast forest/jungle that looks just like this. Excellent job and Mahalo!

"Great Work!"
I really like it!

I want to request the 5760x1200 triple screen version.

That's the size I usually use.

"Too Cool"
Looks like a early morning, great colours and shadows really like this render, because of its peacefulness, awesome render Ryan

"Great Work - Better Time of Day?"
I love the scene as a whole, but I wonder if a Pickle Jar version at a different time of day would make it a little better. Because the sun is coming from the west, it seems like the mountains surrounding it are hiding so much of what could be seen. I wonder what moving the light source would do to give the scene that much more depth.

"Interesting Real Estate2"
Love this. It just makes one want to be out there, somewhere.

"Love it"
... great fall image, I love this. Waiting on the 3440x1440 for my work computer!

Yes some of the trees in this scene are supposed to be Larches.

"Autumn Colors"
I totally agree with your self assessment.

However, if you are not aware of it, check out the Western Larch (Larix occidentals), which we have in the northern Rockies. It is a "deciduous conifer" which turns a fairly intense yellow in fall, making striking areas of yellow within the pine forests, and then sheds its needles. Baffled me, first time I saw them....

"needs more red"
I like it but I might add just a little more red in the trees.

"possibly do a reverse/flipped version"
very nice as usual. is it possible to do a version of this flipped left to right? with the tall peak on the right, a left to right flip would look interesting on the right screen of a dual monitor setup or doing that and combing the two would make a cool dual screen version.

"Triple-screen 1080"
Seem to be missing a triple-screen 1080 version. Please could you supply one? Thanks.

Nice render, just what I was looking for while Storm Callum blows over.
