Final Entries - My Dream Office Challenge
Please post your final entries for the challenge in this thread.

We noticed that there's a few things left to do for a lot of you and as we're putting it up a bit late we thought an extra few days to complete the renders wouldn't hurt.

So extended deadline, all entries posted in here before end of September 30th (midnight EST) will be judged in the challenge.

Cheers and best of luck to everyone,
Nilla

Open Office - Final Entry for the "My Dream Office-Challenge"
Hey there

so, I will start with posting the first final entry, since I will not have the time to do any further corrections and I am actually very happy with the result so far.

Well, I have created this scene because I thought that everytime we are in stress we wish to escape from work. People sometimes dream of the sea or some even think of going into a parallel universe but I actually didnt want to go too far away. I thought a peaceful place above the city would be a nice and interesting spot to put a desk and a chair. Some would probably do a picknick up there, iŽd rather put a desk there.
Its almost like a imaginary window looking out TO the work, to the city, to the life going on there and being maybe far away from the work, but maybe not too far away from our famillies or home or something like that.

The grass is rendered in proxies, the scene is actually split into several layers. The big peaces are the city and the foreground elements. For more convinience and controll I have created a couple of renderlayers for the postwork.
I have rendered in 32 bits and made a basic lighting/exposure correction before converting back to 8 bits and doing a quite massive postwork on the image. You can see that in my WIP-Thread.

Well...thats it sooo,...I hope you like it and Im looking forward for all the other entries and wish good luck!

So here's my final entry. I'll go with a main render in 1080p and a distant overview render in 720p.
A few thoughts about the concept:
This was actually i think the first idea that came into my mind, when i read the Challenge title. I had that idea of an adventurer sitting in an office that is hanging in a tree, in a deep jungle. I was quite sure from the very beginning, that this would be a night scene. I wanted to create an isolated atmosphere, which wouldn't work at daytime. The office would integrate too much into the jungle, since i wouldn't be able to use orange candle light as a contrast to blue moonlight. So i went with the night scene.
Countless hours of experimenting with light setups later, i finally found what i was looking for.
And here it is, i hope you like it

final output.
Finally renders are finish. I wish could have a good machine to render some more cool stuff. so all i end up with is day time renders and one night time render. as the renders taking too much time. so i rendered night scene on smaller aspect ratio and two day light renders are done HD720. Please have a look and good luck to all!
