I felt it too Kart, could you explain more? Any comment to the image please post at the SMC 49 Comments topic, ok?

Many Thanks for all of you!

all three are looking awesome but i like the top one most for some reason, looks a little more personal and a less 'staged' camera angle perhaps...

Sherlock Holmes would be proud!

The modeling and textures are great!

Hee hee! You're a clever dick, Steinie! :D

I think the writer wrote to his wife. It has a picture on his right hand. so the lighting is left to illuminate the picture and avoid the shadow of the photo on the paper. But i can't confirm without the reflexion of the right hand on the glass and metal.

I like 3 then 1 ... just a thought if you rendered the chair in the background of number 1 I think it would compliment the piece nicely.

Spacekdet you are right, but I don't know how to do it I've tried material rectangle but I can't figure out. Any help will be welcome. It's just a fast scene would be perfect if I have more time, but I have to finish others ongoing WIPs..

Thanks v3rd3 maybe I could try that...

Marcel is right I'll post one more image with all the upgrades that people are talking about... And the photo of his wife :lol:

Thanks

I am partial to the first one. I like the overall feel and the viewing angle of the image along with the soft lighting. These are my favorite kinds of scenes. Not overly complex but there is a lot that can be done with just a good camera angle and lighting.
