The colors really blend into each other, and there is very little defined directional light. It could work for a cloudy day, but everything seems to have more of a yellow-green tint.

  • I'll improve my lighting when people stop putting excessive amounts of noise in their pictures. [T]https://u.nya.is/vmlkvv.jpg[/T] Made this to rectify the lack of Korean War pics on this site.

[/QUOTE] You really think anyone cares enough about you "improving" your lighting to change their ways of editing pictures because in your subjective point of view "excessive amounts of noise" is a bad thing? Who do you think you are? Hoooooonestly. :what:

  • [QUOTE=Volf;51834732]I'll improve my lighting when people stop putting excessive amounts of noise in their pictures.[/QUOTE] Noise serves a legitimate purpose when it comes to images locked to an 8bit colordepth. Reduction or outright removal of banding in exchange for noise. Which can be very severe with broad color gradients some of the more colorful images posted here hold. In fact; banding is a issue beyond just pretty screenshots. One of the obvious in hindsight ones is normalmaps. They also serve as a fantastic visual example of problem (banding) and solution (noise).

Edit: Despite this I've only ever used noise on renders a total of two times. Imagine that.

  • [QUOTE=VIoxtar;51833103]You should try adding shadows, right now it looks like shading and rim lighting alone. The lighting on the soldiers for instance is inconsistent with their environment, they shouldn't be lit like that. Are you using lamps?[/QUOTE] sorry that i havent replied earlier im trying to fix my shadows right now and yep, im using lamps i would appreciate any advices
