The Sarawak sim and my old friend

After many months of not seeing him, my good old friend Coobs re-emerges from the bowels of real life back into Second Life. Turns out that he's gotten into photography as well and we go to a beautiful place of his choice to experiment a little. Sarawak a gorgeous sim that is landscaped like no other...not just beautiful but very realistic, yet maintaining a sense of magic.

The windlight settings (environmental settings such as the sky and water appearance) that you will see in the pictures here are not the original ones at Sarawak. The sim settings are totally realistic, but I manipulated them for the pictures.

We stood on an little island off the main shore off a river delta and started 'shooting'. His highly detailed avatar was ideal for a portrait, with rich textures and colors.
I do love this look with the mauve expansive skies, which gives it a feeling of fantasy...but the next picture was a better and more realistic opportunity to show his anatomy, earthly colors and outfit. I think it also reflects the true person behind the avatar, in a stronger and more pensive stance.

Coobs showed me his SL photography but I forgot to ask for permission to add a link to my posts so you all could see. I will ask him next time I see him! He has a beautiful sense of composition and his art is full of light, magic and detail!
