Jeremy, thx for your tips.

I tried and reduced the overall lights. Tried to get the foreground focused more.
Tend to play a bit with cool blue-ish and hot red-ish tones...
Let me know, if yout think that it's still too much...

I'm not satisfied with the refractive caustics really... as if it would think to itself "What the heck am I doing here...?".
Gotta think about a proper background... somthing wet-ish, bathroom-ish would be the first surrounding to think about, I guess.
Maybe I can collect some inspiration from fellow posters with their cool scenes

Good stuff so far!

Thanks for the break up, mesutcapin. That's interesting stuff to study.

Beautiful lighting NeBuLa!

GoksiMaster, nice lightning effect, looks pretty cool.

I haven't tried any hdr on this yet, but it's allready costly when it comes to rendertime :/. Took about 38 mins.

Bam!

Ok has anybody messed with VRay yet? I can't get it to render at a 150 DPI Resolution. So this image is kinda low res. I tried to render it attribute on medium but it still renders as if it were on low. Meaning it's a low resolution all around. lol ALSO I need advice on what I can do about the image itself. Anyone wanna take the bat and swing it across my head? Anyone, anyone at all? lol

Just make the l33t more colorful and desaturate (black and white, or really faded colors) the other one. people are naturally drawn to the color. Makes it more interesting.

Doodlerboy -

Nice picture. You need more poly subdivision on the Brand X bottle, the label looks faceted.

The resolution of the image you posted - over 1600 pixels across - is too high, not too low. Don't worry about DPI, because you can set that later before you print, but for this forum just try to post images that are maybe 700 or 1000 pixels across at the biggest.

Fex - Nice job! Keep working on making making the Leet look really good. Maybe the label doesn't need to cast a shadow, or not such a hard-edged one. If you could make the raytraced shadows completely black then fill the shadow area in with colored caustics, that could look best and then the label shadow would realistically be distorted by the refraction.

Swag - Looks great! The edge-glow around the Leet looks strange, like maybe that fake DOF effect done in post?

jmBoekestein - That's great! Maybe the Leet could be more bright and cheerful with less black in it?

mesutcapkin - Looks good! I look forwards to seeing those new background too.

Goksimaster -

Wow! That's really awsome! The only things I'd recommend are that more light from the lightening could illuminate the Leet bottle, creating some highlights, reflections, and a little more light on the Leet label. And the other thing is to make sure we can see the Brand X label clearly, right now it almost looks like it could be dominating other Leet bottles and the Brand X identity isn't clear for all the subserviant ones.
