Finding the right spot for the camera was probably the hardest part of this image. It was only because of the brilliant job done by many people that just take pictures while they walk around or because they want to promote themselves on the web or whatever other reason and of course because of google maps that I was able to explore the surrounding streets. I found a small jewlery store accross the street that had a tiny virtual tour and just when I was about to exit the store, I ran into an interesting image. I decided to use this image as my starting point, but as this image was not intended to recreate reality as is but to compose upon an idea, the image started to change rapidly as I progressed. Layering and framing through reflections, showing architecture trhough a mirror was my sole goal. Post production was merely toning the image to look what I wanted.
That was a pleasure to participate in this Challenge.
Thank you Ronen.
Thank you Tomorrow.
May the best man win.
I needed to do everything in time. Therefore, I distributed all the time that I had. Fixed every hour and tracked the result. In the rendering breaks, I worked in Photoshop. Almost all the textures were drawn by hand. Some 3D people I used for the distance plan to feel the light and proportions.
So I have 2 days left for the interiors. A maximum of 16 hours for each. I did not set myself the task of doing something very unusual. The interior should be a continuation of the exterior that I had in mind. Therefore, a Christmas tree in the center of the room was the perfect solution.
The second one is a drinking fountain in the library. This is one of the best fountains I have ever seen. Therefore, I decided to show it.
Here is MY Final Entry
These are my final images. I would like to thank Tomorrow and Ronen for this opportunity. It is always fun to participate of this challenge. I hope you enjoy them!
Hey Ronen I just wished the Pdfs could be heavier than 10 Mb 😉
