Homework: very nice start. Next things you need to do to finish the image: - Define the correct rendering size - Move the camera around so that your view looks exactly like the reference images. Note that your view is completely different than the reference image. - Set the lighting / sun, sky - Set the background color to the blue-ish background color of the original image. To change background color of the rendering, see the 1C post - I just added a tip at the end of the post.

Hi, Thank you for the feedback. I've changed the camera around and taken another rendering, However, I'm not sure how to - define the correct rendering size and, - set the lighting / sun, sky. I've got a mac so the setting are different to the tutorials.

- Define correct size: please read the assignment text again, correct size would be double the size of the reference image. So if the reference image is 640x480px (just an example, not an actual size), then the image size of your render must be 1280x960px. If you already did that, then great - I just wrote to emphasize the importance of this. - Setting the lighting/sky on a Mac. Yes it's confusing on a Mac, but don't forget that -whatever problem with whatever program you face- you are not the only one experiencing it, and there is surely someone (or more probably a large group of people) talking about it or solving that problem online. Google search will be your best friend in your professional career to fix these problems, and you will encounter these problems all the time. So you need to get used to learn independently by looking online. Sometime this can be time-consuming and frustrating, but most of the times you can get answers very quickly. Also don't forget your classmates who also work on Mac - ask around if anyone solved any of these issue. A quick Google search revealed me the following link (I can't tell you if it solves the problem because I don't have Rhino for Mac): http://v5.rhino3d.com/forum/topics/sun-and-ground-plane Let me know if this helps :)

Also, the comment for the updated image I've just seen. It looks better than the first one, but: - The image size and proportions are obviously very off. - The view can be much better (original image do not show the sky near the right edge of the image) I suggest you literally put your image and the original side by side and work on the differences. Thanks! :)
