Lighting (Dusk ?) with soft Shadows emanating through all sides of the Rock fire pit.
The Pine needles have a nice soft look.
The Fire is pleasantly glowing with a scattering of sparks rising upward.
I like the details you include:
you even included a fallen log and the ground is interesting and soft looking.
I love the look and feel you project in this scene.
I would love to be in this scene now - it’s peaceful.
You are correct.
It was really just a 'sketch' to test out some composition and lighting, which I shared because I liked the 'mood' of it.
I'll need to restart the geometry of the ground/hills, rocks, and logs from scratch to make it work properly.
For example, the ground/hills shown is just a very small portion of a huge relief map (default setting, I think).*
To recreate the same hills with fresh mesh, I'm thinking to apply a greyscale material to the current hills in order to show height, and render orthographic from above (cropping only the portion I need).
Then I can fine-tune the new relief map ... maybe adding a displacement map for some extra detail.
*I did this huge relief map, then start looking around for some 'hills' I thought would work well
