A Beautiful Day by overseer A Beautiful Day by overseer
For *TreeClimber! :aww:

Based on a scene from STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE. I don't think any further explanation is needed.
    

COMPOSITION: The entire scene setup and render was done in Lightwave. Very minimal post work includes some color adjustment and blending, as well as the addition of borders and my signature.

MESHES: NX-01 by Andrew Smith (with geometry changes and extensive retexturing my me), Starfield, Suns, Nebula & Planet are my work.

ORIGINAL SIZE: 2000x850, 47 layers.
    

Comments and critique welcome.

Thank you to *TreeClimber for looking it over! ♥

"The Catwalk" is one of my all-time favourite episodes from Enterprise, and this is a wonderful rending of that opening scene before the credits. Damn fine job :clap:

Thank you. The original mesh isn't my work, I just changed the geometry and retextured large parts of it; the original is from 2002 after all. Computers can handle a little more these days. ;)

When I look at this, I think of the show's theme song.

Love it! It sort of reminds me of the time they flew over Qo'nos

Thank you!

From what I know, the Klingon homeworld doesn't have two suns. I honestly can't tell you at the moment. I used a screen shot from one of the episodes as a reference, and all I remember thinking then was, "oh, that would be nice to recreate", and my wife accomodated me by capturing the scene for me.

I haven't seen ENT as much as the other shows (minus TOS), so I'm not sure at this point. I believe it was from season 1, but I can't look it up right now.

Wow such a beautiful render, makes me feel like I was back in 2003 watching Enterprise ! :thumbsup:
I am constantly more and more impressed by your ability to seamlessly add tons of blooms, glows, lens flares and such without making sacrifices of the image looking elegant and minimalistic.

Thank you very much. :blush:

I just look at the available source materials and try to get as close as I can. Also, I've been a long fan of the guys from The Light Works (they're currently involved in the new release of TNG on blu-ray as well). It really sparked my interest and affinity for light and darkness and their interaction.

In this case I worked on and off for several days to get the balance right. It wasn't a couple hour job! The suns were particularly difficult. They're semi transparent, textured spheres with a distant light (+ lens flare) in the middle. The advantage being that the suns really are the main light source, not just pretend-light-source! ;)

You know, I actually liked the intro song of that series.

But they should have gotten a different singer.

Well, Russell Watson is a tenor and he did not only sing the song in the opening credits for ST:ENT. They simply chose it, because it works. I think the singer is fine, I just didn't like the upbeat version they introduced later.
