Hi Rahul.
I like it overall, but I don't buy the solar panels. The design, size, perspective, lighting and placement seems off on them.
It will work better without them.

Cheers,

Pavel

Good stuff! Like the last one a lot.


The lightbloom around the edges of the structure in picture below is a little bit too much IMHO.

It's a bit of both. I did a simple model - just boxes basically and painted the textures in ortogonal view. I used that to get it somewhat into perspective. A lot was added and...

Exactly my thoughts, Alex!

If the plate background is crap, then don't retouch it, but replace it!

The last image looks quite well. Can we see some wireframe/breakdown?
The Empire State in the background looks flat and inconsistent in sharpness and perspective.

Hey, Pat Lau.
Let me just say "wow". Wow to the short film and to the "Two worlds commercial". Really inspiring.
