Har har! I know this guy woo woo, oh sorry nearly went back to the days when I was 14 year old 3d noob.

I am especially impressed with the lighting, not just because its technically proficient, but artistically the mood works great too!

Thumbs up.

For that extra touch of realism, take off a buttload of that sharpen filter. You've got so much on you're getting those tell tale halos around your edges. It screams CG, which is a shame as you've got a nice image underneath there. I'd love to see you go the other way and blur it a little, introduce perhaps a tad of grain, maybe a touch of barrel distortion and to top it off perhaps play around with a little chromatic abberation?
Think about it, when was the last time you saw a photograph that sharp and flawless?

awesome grit on the far side wall.

it's not really impressive architectually though.
i mean, it's some glass windows and a set of stairs

as for the rendering, the lighting is awesome.
but perhaps some furniture would make it look more impressive, using radiosity and stuff you know
Reality sucks

Well done, Alex. You have established a mood that makes an impression on people. I've seen images that are closer to photographic that don't say a word.

at first: great work. excellent lighting and nice dirty textures, but in my eyes the dirt on the cylinder in the left corner under the stairs is a little too much and i'd like to see more in this corner. its rather grey, isnt it? another thing i miss are hard shadows where objects are close to each other.
but i give it 4 stars for the excellent lighting, the fantastic atmosphere and the - to me - very realistic looking reflection blurs.

Great image. Really fantastic rendering!

Only crit. The repeating wood texture on the floor seems a bit obvious. would be nice if it was varied more.

It is very beautiful, I cannot stress that enough. I'd love to see a book devoted completely to your work.
