At least i found the time to finish "Countryside" before leaving! You can find more about it in the 3d Portfolio section.
Here is a quoted part of my description about my latest work. What are your thoughts on this?

Many 3d artists tend to overuse reinhard tone mapping nowadays because they want to showcase the detail of their work both in highlight and lowlight area of their render (often pressured by their clients) thus resulting in a kind of hdr look on their final renders. Even though that surely looks impressive it takes away a lot from the photo-realism as well as from the composition of the render. In countryside i decided to post process with a photographic approach in mind. So i didn't fix the burned sun disc and i left it as it was in the hdri image. Also i decided not to lighten up the ground even though there was a lot of beautiful detail in there.
