This is a great one! Only one thing that spoils realism for me is the strong, saturated colour for lillypads. Turning them more yellowish and darker (even only in postpro) would make the image perfect.
Thank you. I never do post-processing. Everything can be done in Bryce. I was not able to translate the word "lillypads". You mean the leaves or petals of lily? So they come in different colors. But I didn't think at all that it is lilies. Some plant is simple...
I was thinking of those plants: [link] (specifically about the floating 'plates' - leaves)
Now I've noticed that I commented twice under the image - once taking it as a whole and liking fully and another time writing about the colour change I hope you don't mind it, and that I didn't cause any confusion. I must have seen it twice - as the group submission and for the second time inside your gallery. It seems that receiving the art changes with the time and with the mood.
