I've been busy working on a music project and have really just been noodling around with the art stuff. I decided to take a scene and render it a few different ways and compare the results.
To be brief, the top row in this are Vue renders with some PS postwork. The render on the far right is a render with no post work.
The next grouping are all SuperFly renders in poser with some variations in post work and lighting. The renders on the far right are all natural renders with no post work.
The final group/duo is a render with the FireFly render engine. The top render is untouched the bottom is postworked.
The city for the night images is an actual prop and rendered into a couple of the images and cut and pasted into others. The daytime images in Vue and Poser both use a city photo of Tokyo, modified and integrated using PhotoShop. The Vue version I blended the Vue sky with the photo sky.
Conclusion. I need to work out character renders in Vue better, to get a better SSS for the skin. Firefly tends to render dark and Superfly seems to render with nice light and detail, but sometimes seems over shiny or over specular. Not included here are some followups. The displacement mapping on detailed terrains seems to work better in Firefly than Superfly, but I'm going to have to experiment more with that. Also, the terrain, character, character clothing and Cube prop by DM are identical for every render except Vue. The lighting can certainly change the look of things quite easily. For Vue I converted the texture of the terrain to a Vue texture.
Also note this is the La Femme figure with my own morphing and the default SSS skin with some minor mods in PS.

Lots of great variations of the image Arthur. Hard for me to pick my favorite.

fascinating comparisons... every render engine has its pluses and minuses

You know, I poured over these to try and pick, but they are all really great. In each format, lighting is amazing, and the quality too. You really could pursue any of them. :)

A cool idea to try different light settings. Vue used to be my go to for outdoor images, but Daz has come a long way and with Nvidia and Iray you can get some great results... ;)
