House Comp - First Attempt with Nuke
Hi All

Well All i can say is that this is a hell of a lot harder than it looks.

My first attempt with Nuke.

Your comments are welcome.

Cheers Myth

Hat of to you for getting this far

Lower the volume fog is the first thing i'd do. Push the brightness of the house walls really give them a kick, desaturate the grass a tad, maybe the bg to.

Now is the time for you to do the fun bit of the comp, play with everything and see what pops out at you. Go radical over saturate over expose push everything till you see the look you're going for. Just have a go see what's possible.

Well done
Dave

For never having used nuke before it's good, it's really not the easiest thing to jump into. I hope working through the entire pipeline has given you a good overview of the process in full and will save you some time on your next project.

I've just downloaded your image and ramped the contrast on it. It's a bit exaggerated but it should show how you can make the image pop a bit more. It makes for a more dramatic image which may or may not be what you looking for. I leave it here as food for thought, and to show a different take on the same image which is better is dependent on the look you're going for. I just leave it as an example of something different.

All the best
Dave
