Thanks, Michael, CD38 actually made the same observation about the hike up. It’s amazing what escapes you when you’re too focused on other details! The stairway is actually a pool in the reference, but I decided to go the route of the paddle board instead.
I looked at the sun angle, and I think I might need to raise it a bit. The reflection off the ocean surface leads me to believe it’s low in the sky, but I think I might have it too low…not sure.
The ceiling is a bizarre setup. I’m guessing it was for wiring or something, because it drops about 10 inches along the far left wall. The camera settings were a nightmare to try to duplicate. I came up with something that is close, but it’s not right, and I feel like the near field is more “stretched” than the reference.
Thanks for the input. It’s hard to get people to review your work and allow for improvements - can’t improve without criticism. I really appreciate it!
I loaded the reference to compare. I couldn’t bare to leave the tiny TV, so I replaced it with a nice 40"
