Last week I added a set of free images sized for use as “cover images” in the new Facebook “Timeline” profile layout. In the process I was going through some of my older work and came across “Moonlit Oasis” from 2009.
I remember it was a bit controversial when I posted it because quite a few of my Members said it was too dark. I stuck to my guns at the time, but now I can really see their point.
I opened up the scene file (in Vue 10 this time) and tweaked the lighting and atmosphere just a bit and re-rendered it. The new version is now available in my 2009 gallery (I’ll have to put an asterisk or something) and Members are welcome to download it.
Dual and triple-screen versions are available along with a free version for use as a Facebook profile cover image.
I will let you be the judge as to whether or not it is better than the original.
