    Yes, you are right. Vamp brings a nice gothic feeling to Ark
    I like this portrait very much.

      It certainly made Ark look a lot more grey and shady. When the red strikes though, it can provide a lot of colours too even it they're all just tints of red and scarlet. It will be interesting to visit Ark again with another LUT to see it all in a whole new perspective.

      Yeah, I'm quite fond of that portrait shot too. She's really one of my all-time favorite characters and this red hair is just mesmerizing the way it sways when she moves. I really like the sincere honesty of her eyes too..

    Nice sets with this fiery lass. Looks she met her tavern match there at the end.

      Thank you very much, Patrick! And yes, that tavern wench at the end looks a bit disturbed about the fact there's another fiery redhead in town!

      If only Riften has the same size of Ark, what a great city if would've been to explore! I still haven't visited the Docks of Ark or the Undercity which would be something like The Ratway only far bigger, so I suspect we'll see more "Riften" when exploring Ark further. At the moment I'm out in the countryside again though. Zarawether is a ranger and she prefers the wild of nature...

      If you mean the LUT, it's indeed very close of being my favorite. It's among the top five I prefer, but my number one is still November LUT. Vamp LUT is freaking cool for exploring though as it turns the whole land into a shadow realm...

      Many many thanks, David! It was a long day in Ark and it gave me three full sets with Vamp LUT images. It's just fascinating strolling around in this enormous city. It actually has loading scenes between some of the districts or else the game wouldn't be able to handle the size of this place. Walking through the city during nightfall was also very cool, to see the shadows grow longer and the lights from the windows become stronger...

      I suspected this wonderful city would get the hold of me once I got there. I had this very lovely memory of Ark from going here the very first time with my first installment some year ago. This memory felt fresh while I was walking to the capital from the Sun Coast and I just knew I would have tons of images waiting for me. The funny thing is, I will have the same experience all over many times thanks to the different LUT's. Vamp was first out and I must say it was a joy using it for Ark captures...

      That main took me while to arrange actually. I didn't want any weird looking, jagged or too sharp angles in the background from the mountains or the near landscape. So I lowered the angle quite a lot and switched the FOV and suddenly it appeared like this and it felt just perfect for a night skyline.

      This is the most recent set with Zarawether. I left her inside The Dancing Nomad on her second night in the city and during next play session I will decide where to go next. I still haven't explored South Quarter, The Dock or the Undercity, but I'll leave these districts for other characters (for now). Zarawether is a ranger and she prefers the wilderness and open roads. Out of curiosity... where did you go after being at the Sun Temple? Did you follow the main quest or did you go for a side quest? I'm thinking about collecting some eggs with Zarawether...or maybe take the long stroll back to Fogville through Whisperwoods...
