Fabulous! I love everything about this. Design, modelling texturing, lighting, attention to detail, camera angle, PP, hell, even the woman on the bench [tongue]

It's the attention to detail in every respect that makes this so good!

This would be excellent to have in our gallery, that's if you don't mind...

Use our Nudge plugin to elevate the planters a touch (5mm should be ideal here) that would make it even better [smile]

Very cool. Yes use it. The planters are set just off the walk in the planting bed which is why they appear so flush against the walk. I don’t quite like the result either. Placement in the design is fine, just renders a bit unsightly. I also don’t like the fountain, the water cascading makes the whole thing look like it’s melting like something out of a Dali painting. I am fixing both of these as minor as they may seem. They bug me, that’s all. So, use it as is or wait until later today and I’ll update it. Everything else will stay the same.
Thanks for the compliments!

Its an excellent render, the detail is brilliant.

I'm being picky as its so good, I would add a number plate to the black car and road markings along the kerb line, maybe a drain as well.

But I must say everything else is spot on, that fountain is awesome!

regards,
Nat

My comments are made in the context of me being in awe of your work. It is always excellent and certainly beyond my abilities at the moment.
Also, it seems that I am drawn to different (maybe obscure and unimportant to the average punter) points in images to most of this cohort.
In this case (being hyper-critical) the first thing I noticed was the edge to the fountain stone appears sharp. Secondly, the brickwork set out is not good - and there simply can't be jointing on the corners (the shop window particularly).

...spatcreativeau...

This is my first post comment on someone else's work.  First of all, great job!  My eye was immediately drawn to the floral arrangement at the light post and then to the same at both sides of the fountain.  I found them to be...well...too linear if that is even a comment.  Could it possibly be that you could just move those arrangements just a bit to be a little more random?  I love the car...but what happened to the woman on the bench...shouldn't she be sitting in the car?

panthony. I think the woman went to contest the parking ticket. the plants, interesting comment. I'll 'randomize' if I haven't done so already. I'll recheck the rotation of the component on the vertical axis where it most efficient to fix what you may be calling 'linear'.

splatcreativeau. the fountain is bronze I believe or some other cast metal. hard to say, it is quite old. an edge, therefore, is not necessarily an oversight. the brick... yeah you nailed that one. I spent my time focusing on the park and the surrounding architecture was just enough to contain it all. Evidently, a detail slipped through. Now you've got my attention so I have to fix it. I'd say your comments, contextually, are commendable... and I thank you for them.

there are a couple of great car collections out there in the SU warehouse. users lowriderfreak, and coyote56 to name a couple. lowriderfreak is where the original car model came from. the paint job is mine, as well as wheels and tail pipe reconfiguration.
