    Gorgeous Dan! I too love the underwater world. Getting to snorkle and dive the Great Barrier Reef in 2009 is one of my most special memories.

    It took a while to put together. And overall, it's the result of many trials, frustrations and accumulated understanding over a rather large period of time since Iray was introduced...
    I thank you all for the kind words. I am also pleased I was finally able to create such a scene to my satisfaction. At some point I was afraid I was not going to be able to render it as it crashed Studio a few times, maybe when trying to add too much geometry into it. But I nailed it in the end...;)

    My 11th Annual Open Rendering Season Contest 2017 submission. I named it "What's your heading Captain?"
    Best of luck to all participants and have fun rendering!

    Great bird shot, but the caption makes it riotously funny to boot!

    Thank you VB! I think it's always a good idea to add a little subtle humor when appropriate. They say it's good for health too!:laugh:
    It was also meant to have some deeper undertones with regards to what we humans do to our environment and cohabitants of our Mother Earth.
    Hopefully, it will mean something for some and inspire more action in this respect...

    Stunning. The glints of light off of the water... just so realistic. Love it!

    Watching so many portraits in various galleries made me want to try my hand attempting a portrait myself. Since I never did one digitally, I thought starting with one notorious character of the seas, non other than Edward Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard. So this is my take on him... I hope you like it.
