Re: late life crisis

Just a thought... Is there a way to change the hexes from a platform to a pillar? I think the "floating platform" effect causes the shadows to be too dark, losing some of the visual continuity of elevations across the plain. With pillars at least you have the edges to add to the visual cues about h...

Re: late life crisis

Well I don't know how to fix it but the color scheme you've chosen seems good as that's the way a lot of topographical map are done...... I multiplied my elevation values by 2.5 and I think this gives a better feeling of high and low. It shows a lot of mistakes, and might be better to work from her...

Re: late life crisis

For some reason the left side brown has a valley look to it by the "Y" in the roads between the lighter greens and I know it is suppose to look the opposite, optical illusion kinda of thing I guess........ thank...

Re: late life crisis

You can see how I am attempting to raise and lower each individual hexagonal shape to it's proper elevation - allowing rivers to...

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

Re: Milford Duck Pond Waterfall

and after what Frank said... I would use the waterfall from number 3.. making the church the center point of it all, and allowing more subtlety for the foreground. I think that you would have a greater feeling of depth if you did so.. Kill the left light.

Re: Beauty in the Marsh

nice shots Piet...too bad the fox shot is blurry yep, normally wouldn't have even posted it, but the subject matter is awesome... missed opportunity due to panic on my part - needed to step outside and I would then have had a better chance. Life must be rough for them, I saw only the one kitten - s...
