Well shes finished. Render took 3.5 hours and then I did some minor work in Photoshop(added the dark tide ring around island, blurred the background, lightened up the boat, and erased a few rouge plants floating in midair.) Three problems it still has: The background brush is touching water, unrealistic but I like it, The boat is not quite touching the water, and the boat is not creating any water disturbance.
Minor flaws that I can fix in PS but this is it. Rendered in 1600x1200 and resized to 800x600 for web use. I hope you like it it took me all of 2 and a half days the crank it out, started off not so great and turned into a nice scene.
Many thanks to all of the help on the forums for input and thanks for the Geekatplay tutorials. Without them I would still be working on making simple terrains. I plan to make many more scenes and will post away as long as its still Ok :lol:
