Every object has its own light set. I decided to do this so I could have more control over the indirect light and color temperature (Fig.15).
For the sand and the sea I created a grid with the sky picture I had made so it could be used as a reflection picture (Fig.16). And because not every part of the sand reflects, I created an environment using the same image to emit light with Final Gather (Fig.17).
This is the render alone (no post-production) (Fig.18).
Now here's the render with the sky I made in Photoshop (Fig.19).
And finally with color correction, grains, DOF and vignetting (Fig.20).
That is it! I hope you all liked it and I wish you all success!
