First Real Rendering Job

Post by Whaat » Thu Oct 21, 2010 6:49 am

Some of you may know that my day job is a structural engineer. I recently had an oppportunity to do some renderings of three concepts for a new bridge in my city. There is an existing bridge on the site that is over 100 years old and the city is trying to decide whether to rehab it or build a new bridge. This job was my first work with photoshop and compositing, so go easy on me... :)

The job is finished but if you have suggestions for improvement of the renderings and the compositing, please let me know.

Rehab the existing bridge
Option 2.jpg
New truss bridge option
Option 3.jpg
New girder bridge option

always nice to see some real world job examples, its not interior rendering only :)

Two Only point of critic for you :)

You really need to pimp your existing image to a usable level before composing it.
A lot of color noise and macro blocks go around here :?

regarding the Indigo composing, super sampling (Also for the alpha mask!) is your friend here ;)
The thin structures really suffer from aliasing...

The lighting looks much too directed, I suppose you used the indigo sunlight?

A nice sunny HDR envmap would maybe look much more natural by bringing the dark areas less dark.

The third is my favourite by far. Hope it goes ahead! Make sure to post pictures if/when the bridge is done!

Looking good! If the third bridge was textured and a bit blurred/damaged to match the photo, it would be pretty seamless with the rest of the photo.

Nice to see some civil/structural renderings! Looks like this is the first time it's done here.
