Elfen Citadel Skyship Night 2 by argel1200 Elfen Citadel Skyship Night 2 by argel1200
This set uses DT's excellent "up in the clouds" freebie / mega teaser for Skies of Reality Vol II. All three use the exact same settings except for the Fstop!! Love how it goes from nightme to bright and sunny!!

The settings are: Sun meshlight (that comes with the IBL) gain: 6250. Linear: S: 2500, E: 1/15, gamma 0.83, and the clamp is set to individual. The other gamma (the one under gamma and film response) is also set to 0.83. The Fstops are: 5.6, 4, and 2.8, respectively. Enjoy!!

Update: Noise reduced postwork (Photoshop Healing Brush FTW!)

Thanks!! I converted the materials for them over to lights and then worked on balnacing them out with the IBL. Except for the light above the gazebo like structure, which I had to turn off because it just doesn't work, being so close to the skyship.

Trivia: I was going to put some elves in the scene, but a test with one in it just didn't look right, so I ended up just going with this skyscape/stil life (well, it feels a lot like a still life to me). I also did a render with lower glossiness across the board, but it just did not look as good. So, if it ain't broke.... ;)

Looks great, brilliant atmosphere! :)

Only the rocky underground seems to be a bit too glossy in my opinion.

Well, being up in the sky, I would think the wind would smooth the rocks out, giving them a glossier appearance. I categorically deny that I just used the default material settings (okay, you got me)! :D
