This has to be one of the coolest things I have seen on Cgtalk in a while.
The level of realism is simply insane.
Every aspect of the image is top notch.

Absolutely awesome work. The only thing that stands out with this as with most other CG work is the lack of dirt, dust, debris, etc. Its gorgeous, but too clean.

Awesome work, I just don't understand why you put a photo of a topless chick on the table, facing the camera.

I think this is the best piece to come through the choice award gallery for a long time. Possibly the best ever. Amazing. Congratulations.

this has got to be one of the best interior scenes i have seen in a long time. I love the detail. Utterly amazing masterpiece.
Heights of great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept were toiling upwards in the night.

Overall, quite nicely done. However, I have to disagree with most of the "absolutely most photoreal ever" - statements. There is quite a few things that give this away as a 3d render, even if we don't count the lack of dirt.
The paneling on the wall behind the sofa and the table is the weakest element in the picture for me. Very unnatural.
The left side painting has a light hitting the canvas that's inconsistent with the rest of the picture. This is because it was lit that way when photographed. But it makes the painting look like a texture.
The armrest of the sofa looks more like plastic or rubber air balloon that's carefully painted to resemble leather than actual leather. Overall the sofa is looking quite cg-ish for the same reason. I would perhaps try some bump / specularity mapping trickery to make it look more "dense" and "thick" as a material.
Most of the books have too thin covers to be real.

As I said from the start; overall this is quite nicely done. And with a far superior skills I have or will ever. But don't shoot me yet. Check for yourself, and see if I have a point.

This is not to put this piece down. It is a well crafted scene. But I try to deliver some constructive chriticism because I thought I have something to offer here.

I think that with some more attention to texturing all my points can be remedied. No need to, but if the maker of this wishes to do so.

Freaking amazing glasswork, absolutely love the close up renders.

One thing that stood out for me was the lighting from the lamps. There doesn't seem to be enough light illuminating the inside of the lamp shades to match the intensity of the glow that is showing through the shade. Also there doesn't seem to be any light spilling from the glow or from under the shade onto the couch, I think a soft rim light on the section of the couch close to the back lamp and a soft glow on the other side from the front lamp would really help the look of the piece....in my opinion.
