It is the little detail that separates 'perfection' from 'good enough'. 
In the good old days of the IRTC, this would have contributed to drop 
the image from a first place to anonymity. ;-)

Of course, the photons are a nice show off if not a perfect example, and 
we appreciate the render time, but an image is not only about that. It 
is about all the other little details (even hardly noticeable) together, 
especially if they have been taken care of in a proper way. After some 
20 years of POV-Ray, that is what you end up look for.
