    Well the scene is certainly believably realistic. I'm not sure quite what it's trying to illustrate, though.

    I'm assuming a rendering like this is meant to show the context of new turbine installations, but the context given here is so generic/placeless that it wouldn't mean much to me as a landowner or developer. I'd want to see the relationship to roads, buildings or other human traces in the surroundings. If it's meant only for eye candy, the foreground scene seems pretty bleak--gimme a sunny day at least!

    The one turbine hiding behind the trees on right is hardly noticeable at first, and it confuses me that you'd go out of your way to render it only to have it so obscured.

    This is an initiative to bring green energy to the Appalachian Trail. Actually, it is pretty controversial. The statement made by developers is 'why not be proud of green energy movements?' and the answer was 'get that hideous thing off my mountain'. So, in the rendering, we're trying to show how secluded the turbines can be. The photographer is standing at the top of the trail near the proposed site.

    How did you go about masking the turbine behind the tree?

    Yeah I was wondering that myself.

    I'd guess he made use of the fact that the sky is almost white, so he set that fragment of the tree as a multiply layer... (responding on the assumption that it'll be a long time before your next post, Inf ;p )
