Good, as always!

I have a couple of comments though, if you don't mind, as I am not 
entirely happy with the scene.

The wooden frames of the windows, while obviously in shadow, are too 
bright imo, or seem over-exposed somehow. I guess that the contrast 
outside (over-exposed) / inside (right exposure, but just) is to be 
blamed here. I think that I would have made the scene a tiny bit darker, 
with the consequence of over-exposing the outside even more of course. 
Difficult choice.

As mentioned, the fur. displacement mapping in Poseray, as you mentioned 
in another post, is a good alternative indeed to the outstanding 
Blender. I have played with it a bit but not enough till now. Another 
entry on the ToDo list; you seem to provide me with a substantial amount 
of them it appears :-)
