This is really nice! I especially like the composition. Did you render this in DS? It has an almost HDRI quality to it and I'm wondering if that was DS or post work? Nice either way, just curious.

It's a bit of both. The lighting is primarily done in DAZ: Orestes Cave HDRI plus some additional light. Then over to Luminar AI for the overall mood, ON1 to add some further HDR and grunge effects, finally Photoshop to tone down the light and adding highlights, some partial sharpening, darkening the edges. I render at 2500 px longest side, so finally I double the size with Topaz Gigapixel and reduce the image size back to 2300 px for further overall sharpening. Sounds a long way? Takes about 15 minutes plus getting the programs to load ;D
