From maxwell documents:

These are the basic functions to navigate in the graphical viewports (Mac OSX users should switch the Ctrl key for the Command key):
* The terms in blue are cinematographic equivalents.

ALT + LMB = Rotate camera around the target origin (Orbit / Fly Around Camera)
ALT + MMB = Pan View (Truck / Boom Camera)
ALT + RMB = Zoom View In/Out (Dolly Camera)
ALT + CTRL + LMB = “Slow-mode” – slowly rotate camera around the target origin.The up/down arrows on keyboard can be used to change how slowly the camera should move in this mode. You can repeatedly press the up/down arrows to adjust, then use ALT + CTRL + LMB.
ALT + CTRL + MMB = “Slow-mode” – slowly pan camera.
ALT + CTRL + RMB = “Slow-mode” – slowly zoom camera in/out.
ALT + SHIFT + LMB = Rotate camera target around the camera origin. (Pan / Tilt Camera)
ALT + SHIFT + RMB = Displace camera origin along the look-at direction. This also moves the camera’s focal point (camera target), along with the camera.
ALT + SHIFT + MMB = Roll camera. (Dutch Camera)

Hi, I did these two images, my inspiration is about the Spanish wine, but I have a dilemma, in the first, you can see the background clearly, but in the other image , I like the idea of winery but the background is lost..

Hello valdesfernando,

Yes, the ceiling occludes the background in the second render, but the most important problem I see is that the ceiling style is disconnected to the background architecture.

I you want to preserve the ceiling, try to create a new one inspired in the Calatrava's structure of the building behind, making your winery a part of the Ciudad de las Artes place.

And take care of the shadows of the family group (father-mother-daughter) which has no contact.

The metals are very cool.

Another suggestion:

In order to mix more closely your structure with the existing architecture, I would replace your bricks (which is a construction element Calatrava never uses) by the white tiles he uses in Ciudad de las Artes (inspired in Gaudi).

Hello Dario.

Thank you very much for your comments.
I made the change in the structure with something more like Calatrava style and change the bricks by old bricks, I will try with white bricks to see how it looks.
i dont know if i will eliminated the walls and leave it open can be a good idea, i really like how it looks, but the environment is a little lost.
with respect to the shadows of people,i will work them in post-production.
i am sending an image to see you think.
Best regards

Hi Fernando, when Dario suggestes to use white tiles, I think he means to use pieces of broken tiles instead of brick, that technique is called 'trencadis' (from catalan verb trencar = break), this technique is present in most of Gaudi's work
