Realistic Outdoor Environments
Working my way through the excellent outdoor tutorials - using vray this time. A bit of photoshop field blur goes a long way. Dandelions looking too uniform though.

Looks nice. You need some dandelions that have gone to seed. I'm not sure about the DOF, it looks off. I see from your first post that it is PS blur? The foreground has too much blur and the background not enough.

Looks really nice mate! Did you use the double sided shader or fast sss in vray for the grass and flowers?

Thanks for your comments - always appreciated!
Yes I think the dandelions are still too uniform - I'll have to back up a few steps. Ultimately I'll be using depth of field in the camera settings so Photoshop is a quick fix. The Shader is a vray material into a 2 sided mtl - I followed a 3dsmax Architectural Visualisation tutorial for the textures (http://vray.info/tutorials/grass/part2.asp) as I'm new to Vray. Looking forward to moving onto the plants/trees!
Cheers

I like it. How many polygons so far? Render times?

Hello,
186639334 Polygons for 8307 particles. The render takes 9mins at 3000x2250 pixels. I'm working on the company's 2x2.66 6-core intel with 64gb Ram. I wouldn't hold up much hope on my home laptop with 4mb of ram hahahha.
