Well, it is mainly different urges colliding with each other. Shall I work
now on this scene that has been planned and/or built for a long while? Or
shall I jump in on this new idea that imposes itself on me? Often the latter
wins I must say, as those 'visions' are rather compulsive. On the other
hand, the other scenes are slowly growing in spurts, at the inspiration of
the moment and time permitting. However, one trait they have in common is
that the initial "vision" so to speak, remains intact, only differing in
small details like additions, omissions or transformations of particular
elements. In the end, there are several pieces of work that probably never
will see completion, but that is probably allright. Unconscious selection.

Yes, I agree with that. In such cases as "The Mother Hive", I would have
preferred some more quiet time to experiment further with the lighting
indeed. I don't know. For one or another reason, I have problems with some
of the uses of fog in combination with LightSys and/or Zeger Knaepen's cloud
macro. "Eavesdropping" was much better in that respect. I suspect that
adding a plane of textured clouds dims the general output of the sun without
really creating clear patches in between clouds. I shall have to investigate
this further at leisure. I remember that I got this same effect with a cloud
macro I wrote myself many years ago. So, in the end, I left "The Mother
Hive" at that stage, with a note to myself to take the matter up again,
maybe from a different angle.
