    I love the trees and the river, however the bridge doesnt exite me. Good job though.

    As previously stated, I love this. The scenery is quite melancholic and really enjoyable.

    The only matter slightly bugging me is the water, you should've used a watermodel with a better tint to it.
    I love the shorelines and the trees fading towards the excessively white background, something that may be considered badly in general but really works for this scenery.

    Job well done.

    Very nice work you have here. Fogging is well done and i love those tree models(from high res pack?). I have to agree with flad, that the water is little bit wrong color. Atm it is too intensive on this picture. dosent well fit with the picture. So when water would be more less blue, maybe slightly more gray, then it would be better.

    Keep it going!

    Thanks man.

    Thankyou both of you. :grin:
    About the water: its not a water model but the wc3 shallow water terrain.
    Is there a way to tint water color? If there is then I'm unaware of it. Please link me to a tutorial if thats the case.

    About the tree models: not from the high res pack, but custom made trees specially for this project. This is a scrn from an RPG map.

    About the Fog: Yes it is too thick, but I intended it so because of the high poly trees, I used other doodads such as grass & small plants sparingly. That made the landscape look barren & I had to use thick fog to hide the flaw.

    I know you used the Warcraft III water, hence I suggested using a watermodel instead as it'll look more authentic - plus it's easily tinted to match the color scheme.
    You can tint the Warcraft water in Scenario>Options but it isn't as efficient.

    I don't consider it too thick actually, I quite enjoy it as it is.

    I like that a lot. Good job! What are those tree models? Can't remember if I've ever seen those before...

    I'm pretty sure he made them himself.

    Thanks, the tree models are project specific that I made.
