show user profile  GirishDJoshi
Hi Everyone,

For some days I have been working and testing some light setups to achieve this look / final output

Am not able to get that brilliant sunlight and the shadows and keep the look fresh feel

Using Vray - lwf method, hdri.

Where may I be going wrong.

Any thoughts, help, notes all welcome.

It looks way overexposed to me. Not sure if it works for vray, but there is an exposure control in max.

Hiya. Images are getting there mate, I'd try copying those ref images to the letter, get as best a copy of it in 3d as you can. Don't stop till its really close.

As far as what you have: All the windows of your ref images are black. Gives it a bit more contrast overall. All your materials are flat looking, you need to start working on your material reflection maps and settings.

See how the black material changes tone with the reflection. Your building has none of that sort of thing at all really. Most materials reflect to some degree. There should be lots of nice little things going on all around. That way, you can see what its made of.

Probably a good exercise would be to make everything a neutral grey, then try to make it the right material by reflection / bump / displacement alone, with all the details you'd expect. Then add the diffuse. Might be a good exercise, not sure :) But reflections and stuff will help enormously. :)
