I'm a little late to the party but here is what I worked on for challenge 47. I was busy with school work so I was only able to do this part of the time, but I'd rather post it a little late than not at all. Any feedback is appreciated! Also I know that the top image is a little grainy, I have to go back in and up the samples and re-render once I get back to school. Also this was rendered with Renderman for Maya, I didn't use any external plugins on top of that. Finally the background images I found on Google from stock image websites.

What a wonderful entries !!
@ Chanipornapple the image look very good even if for me look a bit too "clean". I will change a bit the reflection map of the panels and floor in order to get a more "realistic" version of the material you used.† Just as a stylistic choice I would also decrease a bit the lights in the background in order to contrast everything a bit more. Keep going it is really a good work
@whatsthedaydavi You did the right choice to post your work since it is always better to "end"† and image, even if works are always abandoned by artist and not finished. I really like the "night" work. I will add a bit of variation to the sources (will o' wisp) and probably blur just a bit more the "trails" . Also the image need a bit more of focus on the lighting. Just choose your subject (central tree) and start focusing on lighting it before adding also all the other font of lights. If your render (and I'm sure it can) can render everything with a neutral shader, start from that. One light at time is always a good suggestion to avoid adding too much complexity to the final scene.
@t assin I love lego and so I love yout image too ! Everything looks perfect in the final comp, but I will be also very curious to see a variation with less "GI" or ambient/environment light in oder to focus better on the other source you used (the warm light in the door, the lights on the background and the tree) A very wonderful image ! Bravo !

Hello all, This is my first try with Lighting Challenge, #20 The Shop Girls WIP. I'm trying to give it the Mr. Robot treatment.†
This is also my first attempt with Mental Ray after 4 years.

I welcome any critic and comments!
