Fantastic image.. great work. I don't really know how you can improve upon this. Make me feel like I'm right there.. away from the madness of the world :)

This is easily one of the best looking Vue wallpapers I've seen. Great composition, great scene design.

The lower left corner. It looks like you placed the camera in a position where it clips through the terrain geometry. I'm going to guess that you figured most people wouldn't notice this, but as a gamer who sees this kind of stuff all the time it immediately stands out to me.

Ah I love Vue, one of the most underrated 3D apps out there. Nice job on this...looks like so many hiking trails I've been on. The leaves are a nice touch.

The one bush slightly left of center os a tad gray/smeared looking. I imagine it's the lighting.

Could we get some dual or tri monitor versions of these 3D renders...since it shouldn't be too hard?

Thanks Richard.

I think some GI is missing... but the rest of the image is quite good and realistic

Thanks everyone glad you guys like it..For some reason it didn't take a long time to render...

Never made double or triple screen walls, maybe I'll check into it. Also it's supposed to say forest through the trees not forest for the trees..

Beautifully composed and rendered. You lead the viewer right into the scene.

I'm fighting the Vue 9 learning curve right now, but seeing images like this gives me all the encouragement I need to keep at it

At first I really liked this image. Fine mood and lighting. Splendid colors.

Then I noticed all the leaves on the ground and almost no autumn leaves in the trees. Where did the leaves on the ground come from? Take a look at Vermont, New Hampshire and/or upstate New York in the late summer, early fall, when the leaves start to pile up on the ground. You'll see that the trees have begun to glow with autumn colors as well. There is then a glorious mix of brown, orange, red, gold and green in the foliage overhead, none of which you captured here, except for a token orange leaf here and there, a pitiful hint at what should have been.

In other words I have the same complaint I always do with your work. You have excellent rendering skills, but so little experience of the real world that glaring incongruities mar even your best work. Obviously these don't bother a lot of people; all that attest to is the general weakness in people's powers of observation. If you're going to paint nature, you should see nature first. I've also said this before, you should get outside with a camera and get some practice observing the world as it is. You don't have to paint specific scenes, you can imagine whatever you want, but the various elements of even a wholly imagined scene should be internally consistent.

I love the mood of this image, it feels kind of solitary. And the colors are fantastic, gives a nice "quiet, lonely late afternoon" vibe. But the render...

What's up with the AA? At 2560x1600 a lot of the stems are pretty jagged. Also, I think some bloom lighting could have helped it a little. Volumetric lighting would have been cool too, but the processing time for that can really stack up. As another commenter noted, the GI looks just wrong in places, like under the leaves.

It's really a beautiful scene, it deserves a re-render with at least the AA cranked up.

Had to take a lot of work. Approaching photorealistic territory.

Don't take this the wrong way, but it almost looks like you took a random screen shot in Crysis and posted it as wallpaper. That's also a compliment.

@WhiteDog The leaves on the ground are always a fall'esc orange/brown color. I live in Rhode Island and we have plenty of these scenes both there and in Massachusetts. I think you'll see that those leaves are there year round, not just in the fall. I don't think he's all that far off here at all.
