The background of the first image is an HDRI.
The background of the second is a picture my brother took out in Cali somewhere.
So they are sort of photos.
Just about finished with all the adds for the first one so it should not be much longer before I get to the color work on it. The second one still has a ways to go. Not the the brown lump outside the sliding door, that's the top of a sofa that they could not get out of the shot. lol
