    Once again, that black/white/red is perfect for this set, especially with the red eyes.

      It all started with me just wanting to see my dark elf characters in this environment...and it ended with a serie tributing this culture of darkness. Dark elves in my worldspace ain't that nice people. They have a tainted rumor about them too, and sadly the harsh words about them are more likely to be true. I wouldn't call any of the characters shown in this set of five collections, being good or even friendly. They're rulers, masters, assassins, rogues and blackguards - all with ashes in their heartsl

    Amazing images!
    The use of light and shadows is great.

      I love playing with light and shadows! I've always prefered a highly detailed darkness in front of bright, blurry-white or washed out images...even if those can be cool too!

      Thank you very much!

    Fantastic set my friend! Love how the red in these shots just stands out thanks to the LUT always thought that was cool how a few ENBs could do that.

      It's a great LUT indeed, probably my favorite when it comes to dark interiors. I like the clarity it brings, showing lots of details of the character as well as the surrounding environment. Often dark images get all too black or they consume the textures completely, but with Vamp LUT it all withstands. Black and red is also a lovely combination, I've always favored this when picking outfits in most RPG's.

      I've been off Skyrim and Nexus for a couple of days, so I'm sure I've missed a few of your anniversary sets. I've been playing a bit of Pillars of Eternity and ESO, but I'll look through the image share during the weekend and try to catch up a bit. The Witchcraft theme also ends on Sunday, so I have a bit of "work" to do. Reminds me, you should post your contribution per pm as soon as you can...

      Thanks a lot, my friend!

    I've been loving the palette throughout all of these but this one stood out to me quite a bit more especially during the light-play towards the beginning and with the gloves.

      I more or less took all the images in one session with the same LUT. It started with me just wanting to see all my dark elf characters "in the depth of darkness" and then this Underdark-serie got born. I must admit it's been almost too much fun making these shots and I've started thinking about a story played out entirely underground thanks to these characters and the atmosphere. It will eb a story for the writing alone though - sadly - because I don't think I could pull it off, showing it all in images with staged scenes and all. So this serie has been very inspiring to me as well...

      The Vamp LUT is probably my favorite when it comes to underground shots, because it keeps a clarity in the images as well as maintaining that constant darkness, yet with visible tints of red, shadows and light. Magic effects also come off as very cool, as seen in the "glove shots".

      Thank you, Hannah!

      Thank you for the very kind words, Frank! It's great to hear my sets can still be interesting even after so many images. I've taken a lot of shots from this game, but it still feels like a fresh experience everytime I start up Skyrim. So many mods to try, so many characters to play and lately the LUT's have added a lot of changes to my screenarchery too.

      I'm glad I can still keep you curious!
