It has been a busy year at the office and in no particular order, here are some of the best images done with Podium.

Wow - stunning work Davor!

On my Mac, all these images look a little over-exposed, I accept that this is a personal thing, but it could also suggest that your monitor gamma might be set differently to mine.

Calibrating one's monitor is something we should all do periodically. There is a temptation when you get a new monitor to increase the gamma and contrast for readability with text, but this can prove to be tricky with images. This has happened to me in the past, and I ended up producing images which looked fine to me, but everyone else thought were too bright.

This is a good idea for a New Year's resolution!

I've attached an image which allows anyone to make some simple adjustments to simply calibrate their display.

Thanks Jim!

I will have a look at the monitor settings, though I am working on 4K Dell 2017 XPS laptop at home and 4K LG screen at work which both should be 99% sRGB correct. At least that is what they claim and I didn't tinker with settings.

Also some people at the office did mention my images are a bit bloomy. Perhaps I sometimes overdo it with NIK collection filters in PS but I do like a bit more atmosphere in an image.

Strangely, I can't view any of the attached images on forum. Says I don't have permissions to view attachments.

All the best to you and everyone on the forum in 2018!

Brilliant work Davor,

I like the first two the most, what method did you use for the grass?

The detail and lighting is great.

regards,
Nat

Actually, periodically I also get the message saying that I don't have permission to view images.

It only happens infrequently and generally resolves itself fairly quickly though.

I totally get the point about the images being a bit 'bloomy'.

There is more information on monitor calibration here. 

I'm going to calibrate mine, in case it's not the images, it's just me [eek]

[Edit: just finished calibrating the display, and I'm using the in-built Colormatch RBG profile.

All these images look good (albeit slightly bloomy) but the daytime bedroom scene looks over-exposed. The appearance of these images looks very different depending on the profile used. As I have a MacBook Air, I don't think I can tweak the brightness and contrast etc of my display, but selecting different in-built colour profiles does affect the display, sometimes significantly.
Interesting exercise!]

Davor,

These are really beautiful images. I really appreciate the atmospheric quality you mentioned.
These are something for me to aspire to!

I have a question for you, where do you get your models, I recognize quite a few from the podium browser but the quality of some of the textiles looks really excellent, maybe due to some texture tweaking?

Thanks for sharing these.

Wow, these are beautiful!  Love that first exterior.
 
Jim, that's a really good point about monitor calibration -- I move between about 4 screens (including phone) and images can look vastly different.  It's super noticeable moving from my old ~2010 LCD desktop monitor at home to a newer LED/Amoled screen.  Probably should replace it soon, or at least try to calibrate.

I'm also completely unable to view attacments for some reason.

Really cool images Davor I agree with Natstar about the 1st image, amazing work

the grass is 2 1/2? 

the daytime version looks strange for me just on the right top corner the clouds are cut by the corner of the house? maybe it was on purpose but it looks  a little bit artificial

Thank you all for comments.

@Natstar: Grass is 2.5D from browser randomized using Fur plugin.

@Bigstick: Yeah, the bedroom is a bit too bright. I will have to be more critical when doing post processing work.

@davew: Hard to find free time lately for forum. I wish I could spend more time here. Always good info and tips.

@exhibitions: Great deal of models is from Browser and some are from 3D warehouse. Textures are mostly from Browser. If I can't matching one in Browser, I look online and modify if needed.

@arqcova: I'm not really clear on what you mean. I do now notice that a few clouds are aligned with the pitch of the roof. I think this is coincidence but will check that there wasn't a mask layer that clipped it.

Brilliant work Davor,

Did you use sketchup default sun light or any other source for day light  ?
for example image four.
