This scene is breathtaking.
The lighting is gorgeous and the landscape is full of magnificent detail and clarity. I love your poem and the highlight of light on the mountains. Simply remarkable and such a fantastic work of digital art.

Hi Dieter, Every time I come across your work I am always impressed. In my mind every piece you do deserves nothing less than a six! Love the intensity of this! The lighting on the mountain pulls you into the image. The view you created is breathtaking! You have a way of creating magic when you paint! Beautifully Done! :o) Helvi

Such a wonderful piece here.
I love how the mountain tops seems to be glowing with blue light.
The clouds look menacing.
But yet the ground looks so green and vibrant with like.
I nice landscape, thanks for sharing.

Well done composite image using multiple parts to create a strong visual image. Good color and definition of the parts. Very dramatic feel in this piece. Nice shading and color to bring out the details. good foreground and reflection on the water. Well seen.

    Thank you for the great review, but please understand that this is not a composite. There are absolutely no photographs, captures or extraneous images used in this work. All of the elements and objects in this work were created from the ground up, exclusively within a virtual space using a computer application platform known as Carrara. Each such element or object,(trees, terrains, clouds, etc.) is constructed from primitive mesh geometries such as cubes, spheres and pyramids. The process, although often rewarding, is quite tedious and time-consuming.
Comment from Arctic Artist


Very cool and mystical!! The whole thing looks amazing from the clouds to the trees. Everything goes together beautifully. I like how the mountains are the main focal point. With the murky clouds coming in and the bright green of the trees. Very nice too look at. Thank you for sharing!! :D

Comment from Cephus


A nice recreation of an early morning scene. Nice representation of the early morning rays painting the mountain sides wile burning off the morning mist. Good detail created by using the low angle of the light.

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Impressive capture!
An interesting initial impact.
Grand vista.
Sharply focused.
Fine features & textures.
Nice letterbox framing.
Verdant foreground.
Fantabulous cloud formations.
Vanishing viewpoint.
Diminishing perspective.
Good perspective & long depth of field...

    Thank you, Dick, for the great review, but please understand that this is neither a photograph nor a capture. There are absolutely no photographs whatsoever used in this work. All of the elements and objects therein (trees, terrains, clouds, etc) were constructed from primitive mesh geometries such as cubes, spheres and pyramids upon which textures were applied procedurally, all within a digital art platform known as Carrara. The process, although often rewarding, is very tedious and time-consuming.
