She's light and airy with a delicate flavour. :D

This needs a full view to see the true effect.

Thanks to for letting me use his wonderful photo, Sunset over Strahan here --> [link] as a homemade HDRI file for this image.

Made with Poser --> Pose-Ray --> POV-Ray

It's a light source as well as an image that surrounds the scene and will reflect off any reflective surface. Lighter areas in an HDRI image will, obviously, create more light at those areas.

Wow, groovy effect.

Took me a moment to get the connection with Z's photo. You must have used that as a surround for the gold surface to reflect.

Hmmm... Admittedly I haven't studied the subject deeply, but I thought you needed several photos at different exposure levels to make one HDRI image.

Yeah, it's my own homemade, "on the cheap" version. I just make them with HDRShop. It serves its purpose. :shrug:
