Tks so much! It took 2mins and 30 secs more or less every frame for 360 frames…

I would have liked to do it longer but there are many things that I prefer to improve and put a better version in the coming weeks. If you liked this I hope you will like more the next one.
Thank you very much x for stopping and writing.
See you soon. CIAO!

It does look pleasing and photoreal. Although I would fix the focal point, right now its 50/50 on the path on the left part of the image and on the puddle on the right. The tree foliage looks too copy pasted and too flat on the horizontal view, trees look like they are blurred on horizontal path.

I like the grass, puddle and the environment around the puddle. Those are the most beautiful and photoreal parts of the image.

A very pleasant scene, very photorealistic.
Some small critiques though and an idea for something that might help. My eyes were drawn to the shadows on the ground. It made me wonder what was causing them. Clouds? I can’t tell, but it’s a bit distracting. If it is from clouds, the shadows are too dark. I see in your follow up still that there’s a tree there on the right. Is that what’s causing the shadows? Maybe include the tree in the shot next time.
Secondly, the camera motion is a bit mechanical. One thing that I think would help is real camera motion. You could record some real life hand held video and do motion tracking on it to apply to your Blender camera. I saw a YouTube tutorial on it. I’ll see if I can find it for you.
Other than that, very nice work! It’s an idyllic landscape, almost like a painting.

Thank you very much for your comment. Thank you very much especially for the advice for me very important, I look at the tutorials and I hope to be able to apply them already in the next video. Thank you very much also for the compliments. I hope you enjoy the next video even more. Loris

Tks so much, I hope I deserved it. It makes me proud that one of my works can even be compared to that of real talented artists.
Thank you very much again, it is a help to grow a little bit more every time. Loris

My only complaint is that snakes and other reptiles are underrepresented as a species in this short (and most others). Other than that, it looks like a photographic image, so…well done. :slight_smile:
