Wow man, amazing image, can you share your lighting settings? very very cool
Thanks. Glad you like the image.
The lighting is simply a vray sun & sky system. I used reinhard color mapping with a 0.4 burn factor. Vray physical cam was adjusted to correct exposure.
ohh that’s nice, I never thought such a low number for reinhard, roger that and thanks you web is in my bookmarks
The lower the burn number in reinhard the closer to exponential you get. Exponential color mapping is like having reinhard burn multiplier at 0. Linear tends to work better with 2.2 gamma rather than 1.0 gamma because the mid tones are brighter you dont need your lights to burn so much.
