Hi Guys, This is my first time entering in over a year or two. Cool to see some of you still here and kicking!
My entry is Pure (Maybe Open), 2048 cycles samples. Made all the assets this weekend purely for this. The Radio telescope is loosely based off the Soviet RT-70, and textured with Poliigon assets (minus the ‘87’ decal, that was Photoshop). The Mountains and relevant texture maps were generated in Houdini (Hence the ‘maybe open’ classification). Final grade done in Lightroom, and border added in Photoshop.
I was inspired by the eeriness of Bladerunner 2049 for the ‘Wasteland’ bit, and after recently catching up with the TV series ‘The Expanse’, I thought something space related would be quite fitting, and would suit the ‘beautiful’ part.
Thanks

Those mountains contribute a lot to the impact of your image IMHO – if it were me I’d call it Open.

I would personally rate it pure, the mountains in the scene are a background object. It’s very similar to the mountains in my scene which I rated pure.
(They are simply a Textures.com texture that has been modified in the node editor)

But yeah, it’s up to each person what they feel is Pure.

I think I’ve seen that canyon before :wink:
Nice work I like it.

I like the lightning, it improves the scene a lot. :slight_smile: The artistic reflection is nice too.
Just the middle dino, i can not get into the orientation of it. It is disturbing me.

Hello! I’m excited to be entering again for the first time in ages! It’s cool to see the many of the regulars still going strong (you know who you are :wink:). I 'll try to join in as much as I can!
Here’s my entry:

It’s an old project from past weekend challenge#888 … I’ve posted it for comparison because Victor2 made almost the same canyon and even camera has similiar angle :wink:

Now I see what you mean :sweat_smile:. Just 1000 years later after the dinosaurs drank almost all the water :wink:.

Binary Sunset

Open - the person is a 3d scan I downloaded, but everything else is pure Blender built this weekend (including sculpting a hood on her outfit).
