If you've been following my work for a while now you will have noticed that sometimes I like to imagine magical portals linking my worlds. Waypoint was planned from the start to depict one such portal. The day version shows it "closed" while this night version shows it opened and ready for use :-)

This is my favorite of all your outdoor interest renders. The lighting makes it perfect for a background, and I really like the light rendering on the columns. Very well done.

"The Same World"
Is it my (active I will grant you!) imagination, or is the mountain in the background of Waypoint, the same mountain as in Snowtop? They almost look the same, from a different angle.

"Easter eggs coming soon...?"
Of course, for the next dozen or so landscapes Ryan publishes I'm going to have to carefully scan to see if he's hidden other terminals of this Portal network in the details...

When I saw Waypoint my initial thought was I hope to see a night time version. This is just what i envisioned. Great work once again Ryan.

"Ohhhhh, Yeah!"
I, too love portals and such, and night versions of the day choices as well! Between Fantasy and Reality THIS one emotes energies and calms! :)

This is what day and night versions ought to be about. Fabulous work, Ryan

This is quite excellent, and I especially love the throwback to "Sierra", coincidentally one of the first images (wallpapers never seem to quite do these justice) that I remember seeing when I first came to this site! About the only negative is the snow--especially in this lighting, the clear lines between snow and mountain are a bit jarring. If they were less "black and white" (edge blurring?) this would rate a perfect 10 Even so, if 9.5 was an option, I'd have probably gone for that.

"OH WOW!!!"
This gets a perfect 10!!! out of me. It's absolutely beautiful Ryan!!! Great job!!! I love the colors, the feel of the render....I just love everything about it!!!

As you said, it reminds me of some of your work from back in the day. Very nice.

"Different like Day and NIght!"
Wow, the night/day have such a different feel. The warm light of the portal in the night draws your eyes to it and really makes you feel like you could be transported.

The daylight one is also lovely, but the portal feels different -- more looming and mysterious rather than inviting.

"Peaceful and Inviting"
I love this one. Almost feels like it's the portal that a wizard would use to get to their favorite vacation spot.
