I was going through my old files on Bucephalus recently and found this version of an old favorite. It still needed a bit of work (the atmosphere is all new) but I thought it was worth rendering and giving it a place of its own in the gallery (even after all these years).

Thank you! I've already rendered a night version though :-)

"Nighttime, too"
So glad you re-rendered Temple of the Leaf. This has always been one of my favorites. Night version, too, pretty please?

Please do a daytime, sunny blue sky day render of this. Awesome looking.

Hi Ryan. Thank you for this - nicely done! I always liked your Temple of the Leaf, but the change in lighting in this version brings out a feeling of 3-D space and other details that I couldn't sense from the original. I also feel bad for that lonely pilgrim on the pathway, who seems to have only progressed a short distance between the sunset image and the dawn image! Must have been a slow-moving night.

Was this the one that was inspired while you were reading Game of Thrones? I remember the original, and it reminded me of the ancient Aztec capital Tenochtitlan with the canals.

Reminds me of good times playing Sid Meyer's Civilization. Really happy you updated this one. I wouldn't have guessed it was inspired by the Temple of Meereen, so I found that interesting. I think this image would fit nicely into many fantasy environments. Great work.

"A Classic"
A real classic! Is there a possibility if dual screens? Having the constellation of Orion in the sky would be a nice pickle jar addition.

I am rendering the multiscreen on Bucephalus. It should be finished sometime this weekend :-)

This is a good one, all right. Naturally, just after I resorted my wallpapers into "night" and "day," you provide us with dawn (this) and evening (passing through) to complicate matters. (No complaint, just a bit ironic.)

Should we wait for this to get the multiscreen treatment with the newer ones in the queue?

Definitely worth the effort Ryan. One of your more iconic pieces. Love that you reversed the time of day for a completely different feel.
