My chess set again. This time I've played with the DOF settings. DOF in carrara DOES kinda make sense to me, but the preview is kinda small, so I wasn't sure what I'd get until I rendered.
I also turned on quite a few of the settings. SO this took 1 1/2 hours to render. The DOF is worked out afterwards, which is kinda weird, but I guess it knows what it's doing.
No lights in this. Just the HDRI which is also the backdrop.
Chess set made in Wings. Render in Carrara using default textures and a tiny bit of post in Photoshop (sharpen and resize).
One of the English computer art mags has a picture of a chess set by a guy at a similar angle and POV, so I nod to him (sorry, not sure who it was)for the inspiration.
Thanks for looking.

Stunning render here! I don't know much about Carrara cause I use Cinema4D but it looks like a very impressive program. The glass textures in my mind are perfectly done. Thanks for inspiring me to go back to try realism and chess peices again!! I wanna see more from you with chess sets! EXCELLENT JOB MY FRIEND!!! :D
