This is So Not where I wanted it to go,
but after 2 renders that took days
apiece on my Quad Core I am done with
it. Same terrain, stone shaders and
grass as the last image.
6 Palm Tree populations
3 Large Tropic bush populations
2 Small Tropical plant populations
4 Grass populations - Walli
6 Fake Stones Shaders
Thank You for your viewing!!!

First look I thought this was done in Vue. You and Bob seem to be light years ahead of everyone else in TG2. Must be those quad cores :)
Having said that here is my critique. After looking at the enlarged view several things cough my eye. The clouds center left of the moon just don't look quite right, otherwise the rest of the cloud render is awesome.
Secondly, the terrain texture is superb, but it is too bad you couldn't separate the layers at different elevations and mix some sand in along the shoreline and into the jungle like you can in TG1. But considering it will take another 2 days to render this again...might be a worthwhile project for a weekend you are away from your computer.

My goodness! This one is near perfection Mark. A sure keeper. I only have two suggestions: First, you might consider reducing the density of the stones/rocks; secondly, also consider softening (more fuzzy-zone) the 'wet line' on the sand. In all, this is some very exciting work by you.

I agree with Bob. Pebble Beach is one of my favorite places in CA, and you've done an impressive job here, especially with the rocks, water and POV. Nice job on the plant/tree positioning and distribution. One small suggestion- cypress and eucalyptus trees are indigenous to the area. Beautiful and very nice work, Mark!
