If I try to view your mov file, I get a page saying the following:-

How very uncooperative of them...
Your stills look good though. One comment on the steam in the still that you posted - it looks a bit too uniformly coloured where it's thick...
I like the big subsurface pipe - nice touch!

can anyone try to right click save as..
i just try in another computer and works (save as)

Yes, 'right-click -> Save as' works.
Think you are getting along good here. Like the inside of your crack, pipes steam etc. The far end of the crack looks a bit off, maybe you could do something better there
The other tip is on the smoke/steam. When rendering smoke or anything that is transparent somwhere your background needs to hav the same colour (or close). When you render particles on a black bakground in any package and the particles get transparent at end of lifespan they mix with the black background.
So when you drag it into your comp. package it will have som nasty fade to black effect and not blend in at all. It looks like you are having that on your particles. So remake them with a light grey background and they would look much better. I think some packages have options for not filtering agains bakground witch would do the same thing (i think).
thats looking quite sweet... :) keep it up, cait to see it finished.
