This is an old challenge now, this thread is archived. If you scroll down to the Challenge #4 section of the downloads page, you’ll see that the models can still be downloaded for your tests, and also that a gallery has been made of top entries. Feel free to browse this thread to see what others have posted, even though you can no longer post here. Models are available for download here:
The challenge is just to download the files and show how well you can light and render the scene. You can use any software you want. It can be any location, lighting situation, time, mood, or style of image.
Most of the objects in the .obj file will need some subdivision (polygon smoothing) before you render. All shading and rendering techniques are fine. The rules are to have fun, make a cool rendering, and share how you did it afterwards. (If you want more detailed rules, see [this thread](http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=319005) .)
