  1. Pathu Canas Square

    Pathu Canas Square

    This is the village of Pathu Canas. Don't let the warp name confuse you! Hithrengarth is the name of the castle at Pathu Canas. Was preparing for a tour here on a tight deadline and wondered if I could get a good shot of it. Happy with the result.
  2. Calembel Aerial Foggy

    Calembel Aerial Foggy

    Perhaps a bit more direct lighting would've helped the left side, but beyond that, I honestly really like the colors of this shot.
  3. Calembel Weird Coloring

    Calembel Weird Coloring

    Not much to say on this one. Feels nice and sharp, but the tone is a bit curious.
  4. Belfalas Village Vertical

    Belfalas Village Vertical

    Belfalas' villages should generally hold up on the server for a good while. It's always a treat to attempt a good shot with them.
  5. Methrast Cloudy

    Methrast Cloudy

    This was taken not long after discovering that stormy weather darkened my shadows and clouds in the Bliss version of the time. Made full use of that reintroduced feature carried over from Chocapic.
  6. Methrast Saturation Test

    Methrast Saturation Test

    Took this shot nearly a year ago now. I was testing an editing filter with this one. The colors actually reminded me of the Super Mario Movie promotional poster at the time, curiously, lol
  7. Linhir Archway

    Linhir Archway

    Really basic, but I wanted to try to get a shot of Linhir while it was still in progress since I hadn't been there in a while.
  8. Belfalas Windmills Low FOV

    Belfalas Windmills Low FOV

    Surprised I took so long to get a shot like this. Could've swore I had taken a shot of theses windmills in the past, but apparently not!
  9. Dol Amroth Low Aerial Shot

    Dol Amroth Low Aerial Shot

    For years, I've wanted to get shots of cities like Dol Amroth from angles where you can see the horizon and the rooftops at the same time. Due to chunk rendering limits (and the limits of my rigs), this is near impossible to do well. The fog helps make this attempt look alright in this case.
  10. Dol Amroth Lovers Bridge

    Dol Amroth Lovers Bridge

    I had gotten a shot of this bridge in a Sevy Tour video from 2021, and I wanted to come back to it and do it real justice. It is a very pretty build. Makes for a good test of a shader's global illumination settings as well.
  11. Dol Amroth Edge

    Dol Amroth Edge

    This tower has been the subject of many a screenshot over the years, and I don't blame its photographers one bit. Still, it does make it hard to come up with different styles and angles for it. In this case, I felt that the warm morning lighting went well with the fog surrounding the rest of it.
  12. Dol Amroth Miniature Square

    Dol Amroth Miniature Square

    I don't like to stick to one style of screenshot. Instead, I try to vary up my settings and editing from time to time to give a wide range of styles. In this case, I was definitely going for the moody, dark atmosphere.
  13. Turtle Rock Vertical

    Turtle Rock Vertical

    Er, not much to say on this one. I liked how the clouds go with this one. Been a while since I did a silhouette shot.
  14. Pelennor Fields Vegetation

    Pelennor Fields Vegetation

    Lil' basic, but I liked it. :P
  15. Minas Tirith Aerial Cloudy

    Minas Tirith Aerial Cloudy

    My third version of a shot from this angle. I didn't expect to get a good shot from this angle, but the fog, cloud shadows, and varying tones really made this version stand out.
  16. 48 Hour Short Still

    48 Hour Short Still

    Got this still from one my clips meant for the 13th Anniversary YouTube Short to demonstrate my settings to Toti. I actually am rather happy with the shot, though, so I'm posting it here.
  17. Andrast Bay Warm Square

    Andrast Bay Warm Square

    Not as satisfied with this final shot as I was at the time taking it in-game, but it honestly could be far worse. Think I expected the cloud shadows to work a bit better, but it's hard to complain with this result.
  18. Andrast Cliffs Davinci Goldenish

    Andrast Cliffs Davinci Goldenish

    A more recent shot. This is the result of me watching a 25 minute video on woodland photography and getting inspired. For this shot, I chose a less wide aspect ratio to experiment with aspect ratios other than my normal go-to square, 16:9, and 9:16 ones.
  19. Andrast Yellow Custom Sky

    Andrast Yellow Custom Sky

    This shot was taken around the peak of my creative rush in June and July. Using the seasons feature of Bliss, I purposefully framed the composition of the shot so that I could crop it to the vertical after taking it. I think came out quite nicely.
  20. Some Coastal Spot in Andrast

    Some Coastal Spot in Andrast

    After a creative rush from June till August, when I got some of my favorite shots to date, I was rather grasping at straws for that creativity and motivation to screenshot. This shot came out of that time in September and isn't doing anything special as a result. It's not bad, but not great either.
