Default Japanese garden

A small garden for a small back yard in the Japanese style - assembled with Photoshop.

Any suggestions for improvement?

well the problem you have is a lot of the plants seem to be lit from different angles which makes it look a bit unatural and i would try a bit more feathering on some of the edges, but all in all its not bad

Kazuya -

Thank you - that's a very useful comment. I've assembled several imaginary gardens by means of Photoshop in which I've tried to emulate the Japanese style, but I didn't pay much attention to the direction of the lighting in any of them!

I'm going to examine them all and see if I can either improve them in that respect or (hopefully) discover one or two where I happened to get the lighting a bit more consistent. (And then perhaps post one or two more).

Kazuya -

In light of your comment about lighting I had another go at a second Japanese style back yard that I'd put together - in particular trying to correct the lighting of a rock at the left rear. It proved a lot more difficult than I imagined. So instead of posting it in this thread, I'm going to post it in the Xtreme makeover section....

Why not put in a small pond as long as this is make-believe.

Caryl -

I'm glad you mentioned a pond - I've posted one that includes a pond in the Extreme Makeover thread & there are some very helpful replies to it. (q.v.)

Since this is a Digital Art thread, why not add a lot more saturation and make it a bit unreal. Realism is not what is required here. Nice shot(s).
