I'm asking for suggestions as I have hit a wall with what should be added, removed, changed.

Rowboat "the denny" model is a .skp courtesy of C.J. Leigh, all other geometry modeled in TC pro v17.2, render by other.

More light.  The Bait Shop sign should glow, not just be visible and the flag is way too realistic to be so dim and hard to see.

The clouds in the background look fantastic; don't change those.

The wall of the building looks to clean.

This is really impressive Tom. Great job all around. Looks like a storm is brewing by the look of those clouds.

I am curious how you did your flag - care to tell?

Alan and Jeff, Thanks-I'll use your suggestions for the next render.  Don, Thanks, the flag is a picture with an alpha channel applied to a square (graphic magic).

That's a great picture, Tom (the revised render) -- but I feel uncomfortable with the lighting. Your lamps, and their effects, are superb. However, those effects suggest to me that the time of day is dusk and therefore IMHO are not compatible with the sunlight shining on the flag and on the shore in the background image. I'm wondering how the scene would look with the background image a little less bright and with no flag at all in the model (and maybe with the color balance of the background image tweaked a little).

Nicely implemented, I like the improvements.

BTW, I already like the scene.  Maybe you can consider leaving the previous renders posted, it would benefit others.

And glad I could help ;D

That's a fantastic model Tom. I love the materials, especially the wood applied to the deck construction and the water too. I agree with Henry's advice. Another thing to consider is the shadow cast from the flag. It's fairly dark and hard-edged compared to the other shadows on the same surface. Very cool render though.

Tom, that's one amazing render as it is. The best improvement I can see would be to darken the water under the cabin & pier. Use a gradual tint or airbrush in your photo editor.

Henry, Alan, Brad and Julian-Thank you, I truly appreciate all the suggestions.  I've been tweaking but still am not satisfied.  Good thing I've got the time and patience to keep working on it.

Time, patience and a good cup of coffee will get you through just about anything. :)

Tom, that’s kind of eerie.
For a representation of a foggy day, I like it the way it is.

I like the other one better… maybe a little more dulling of the bright (clean) colors. but, as I said before, I already like it.

Alan,

Thanks, I was going for a foggy evening and I agree the first is too bright.

I think it is pretty cool how the Cedars across the inlet have their own little ray of sun . . .
Very realistic.

I was too lazy to do the door handles.  I knew someone would catch me.  Maybe I need to take a closer look at door styles and see how I missed that parameter (ha,ha).

Thanks McSlash

Very nice Tom! I like this version a lot. The mood is perfect and leaves the viewer wandering what may be lurking just out of view. Nicely done.
