I ended up doing two, one at "night" and one at "day".

The night one has a bokeh shader, the other one had blur added in post.

I honestly can't decide which one I like the best. Maybe it doesn't matter because they're similar enough, but I would like opinions of others here.

I like the second one much better, there's nice separation between the foreground and background.

This is my final image! Again for comparison, my first, second, and final versions:

Jonathan, nice work, the warmer, brighter light looks a lot better to me.

Since I had time, I worked mine a bit further.

don't forget :(

Everyone, don't forget to post in the final images forum. There are a lot of cool entries I saw in the WIP discussion that aren't in the final submissions.

I did not get this completed before the deadline ended but I still wanted to finish it. It's not there yet but getting closer.

Finally finished with this image, to bad I could not have finished earlier

As always, looking forward to the next challenge. These things are a great way to get out of ones comfort zone and try something new.

I've made some times ago a little animation rendering (I know it's not a still image, but anyway i want to share it) with that marvelous mad science model.

I've used Thea render to make that long animation and it took me a lot of computer time

Hope you'll like it.

I've done an animation too (72 frames though). I didn't thought of posting it here at first, but when I saw Wax78, I thought I could share with you.

It is part of my personal demoreel here is the link:
