I love it when they say this. Prefer "Any criticism welcome..." but I take
what I can get... ;-)
Just for reference, my set up :
1280x1024x24bit (my first and still only two weeks old 8meg video card.
28,800 on another machine across the (unknown) LAN.
Now I chew you apart >BWA HA HA HA< :
People with 8 bit are having a hard time reading the gray on gray text.
People who turn their brightness and contrast knobs to settings other than
where I keep mine are having a hard time reading the gary on gray text.
(From my observations, people seem to like to keep the black parts of their
screen some where around a color that the sweatshirt industry would call
"luminous charcoal gray" and the white bits somewhere around Bolivian
hammer thrower's jock strap.)
I am having a hard time reading the gray on gray text. But then, I have my
fonts set too small.
I like a kinda page shaped web browser and some other parts of my screen to
be useful, so mine is probably around 700x900 and the page looks pretty
good. Of course, I am not seeing any of the pretty green text off to the
If I crunch my browser up, things get kinda crowded. If I crunch it up to
the size that less than 40% of the population uses (an I work with half of
them, ew) the horizontal "buttons" *up against the gallery "button".
Maybe drop some space in there.
Oh, you meant of the images.
Wow, using 3DS-R3!
OK, I'm fishing here... famroom.jpg could use a bit wider penumbra on the
shadows of the window and probably some dappling since there appear to be
trees between the floor and where I think the sun is. ANd the table top has
no visible thickness at the edges.(I blow it up and there is a hint of a
1.5 pixel thick edge. Maybe they just have strong glass in Australia ;-)
The perspective in famroom.jpg is a little strong, like you've gone out to
maybe 75 degrees. It's always hard to show enough of the room in a small
image that the viewer gets the idea of the room and not so much that they
don't get seasick. The framing between the window and the setee is nice, so
maybe in this case it was the best bet.
I'm having trouble with the fine scale outdoor bump mapping, but that isn't
really you so much as it is the state of rendering today. Haven't pinned
down just what the trouble is. So this isn't really constructive, sorry.
You might be able to get better lighting if you get a copy of Lightscape.
That's really all I can come up with on the constructive side. I have other
comments, but nothing I can really back up. Most of the images looked real
nice. Thanks for sharing.
