Unless you turn it into a tattoo, it'll wear off soon enough, so you might as well go ahead and wash it. You've captured it for posterity with the photo!

The side walls are too stretched out and distorted. You may want to make your room a bit shorter, or find a wider landscape photo to use.

The wood floor has the wrong perspective. Where the wood planks meet they should be parallel to the wall. Just select the floor and transform it with the perspective option. Good luck.

Great shot and I love the positioning of the dolls. I'd correct the slight green tint you have going on (caused by the light reflecting off of the wall) and either straighten the image or crop out that bedpost on the left hand side.
Also, that is the scariest looking Santa I've ever seen! :P All the best!

Entry

MossyB says:

The lighting and focus of all three animals looks very inconsistent with the rest of the picture. The skunk is far too blurry and is lit from the top. The rabbit is far too sharp and is lit from the side. The deer is only slightly blurry, but is lit from the back and top right subtly, but too dim for the field...

The bunny also appears to be levitating above the ground, rather than nestled into the greenery...

This is a nice concept, but needs some adjustment.

See if this is of any help.......

OpenGL settings on the Mac OS X version of SketchUp are different than on Windows, but you should be able to get something nice to look at on either platform. It looks to me a little like you're not running your display at its native resolution, but I can't be sure. Typically, the Mac OS picks a pretty reasonable setting for you- you may (however) want to try forcing FSAA (Full Screen Anti-Aliasing) 'On' manually if you don't like the default appearance.

CAUTION: This is an undocumented hack that isn't habitually tested by our QA team– though it may give you the 'look' you're after, it may cause unexpected issues elsewhere in the application.

1. Choose "Window > Ruby Console" to open the Ruby Console
2. type the following into the console:

Test.set_AA_method(4)

...and hit Return.
3. The console should echo back to you something like:

0

...indicating the previous anti-aliasing setting was "0x"

4. Quit SketchUp and restart. All SketchUp windows will now have 4x anti-aliasing enabled.

pretty good.. look in to having the edges anti aliased it gives it a smoother look . although iv never used sketch-up. so i don't know if it has the option

Author what program did you use to create this?

Interesting, but the hunter is hard to see and he doesn't seem to be aiming at any of the basses. The lighting on the bass at 4 o'clock seems opposite that of the background (i.e., from the upper left instead of from the upper right). That bass also needs to cast an appropriate shadow. The even light across the scene makes it hard to know what to focus on besides the biggest element, the central rock formation—but it's not the point of the image.

Compositionally, I think looking over the shoulder of a hunter in the foreground in the lower left corner aiming up the hill would be more compelling.
