Thank you very much for the kind words, my dear friend. You may not need my product, you may only need my implemented version or just the simplest way, without my version will do the job just fine. Dig a hole around your building or around your pool, using a large plane, place it properly then. After that go to Daz scripts->utilities->create advanced render node. That will allow - when properties tab selected for your plane - enable "matte". Matte basically means 'compositing' and it's actually a shadow catcher for iray. That plane will be your needed ground, you should disable from render setting to 'draw ground off'. When rendering in preview or final render, that will compute your HDR and place the ground on your plane you have digged that hole. My implemented version only allows underwater renders and slightly insignificant more details. You should be already good to go. It probably fits great most situations what is already there for free in Daz.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
When my product will be ready, you can have for free that simple thing, the ground stuff. If you need it earlier, I can send it to you if you wish. I can also explain how it works, it's extremely simple stuff.

You may also want to dig that hole in a round plane for your ground, a disk shaped plane.

I love you too, my dear Rod. The water looks decently well and it's easy to adjust the surface with displacement as required. The water shader is indeed a bit more complex stuff but the render was only made to prove the concept works. Otherwise I wouldn't have flooded the gallery with ridiculous things. I was thinking to provide that helper after my current project will be ready to sell, it seems some people will enjoy the idea. Thank you for the wonderful words, my dear friend.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

It may be just a proof of concept, but it's looking pretty good!

Properly placing the camera might do something to remember of Escher, not here but it's possible. Thank you for the kind words.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
