nice one Tosch. Did you changed color of textures or its only your HDR profile?
I have recolored all trees (btw I need the original trees, because a lot of color information is lost), the grass, the curbs, inverted the normal maps (now they work like they should) and made some new hdr profiles. Nothing is final, I just wanted to see how it looks when everything is a bit brighter and more saturated.
...and maybe I can give pleclair some hints and push him slightly in the direction of graphical representation I would like to see for this track.
2 and 3 picture looks spot on to me

Love these reflections, they're excellent if you set the alpha layer right!
Discovering the F12 key, so quickly made those ones to use as my wallpaper

Edit: Why it's thumbnails and without my original resolution 1920x1080 guys?
Edit2: Ok, 1920x1200 originally, that explain I guess...
I like the last one!
are you sure the sky isn't edited?
looks really good.
Tosh you have my respect. Great experiments. I you allow me to give you an idea, I suppose that that screen its from 1 or 2 PM maybe by looking to the tree shadows and in that day time i think that ambient should be even more brighter.
Next i show two examples of what I'm trying to explain. the first its default HDR settings at 13PM and the second its a new hdr profile that i tried and for me much more real ( This one is a little bit too much brighter but even that way for me its more real).
Stunning work m8. that its the level of graphical quality that i want to see in rFactor 2
nope didnt touch a thing. even forgot to turn off the FPS counter...
daytime skies are all a bit bland, but dusk/dawn, add some cloud cover and it looks really good
its from the f1SR conversion that has been commissioned by the group. i have long understood that to have been a scratch rf1 build by that team
I don't think it is too bright. On a sunny day you should want to wear sunglasses. Granted only a few monitors could output that sort of brightness but ultimately that would be the goal.
on my dispaly looks good. Like sunny day. Probably a lot depends on settings of your display. I dont use any calibration tools i got with my monitor cause when i did everything like it told me everything was messed up. I thought my display is broken. Then i got back to default settings and set low contrast and high brightness - completely inversely as calibration tool told me to do and now its great.
