   Yes, I also tried that with the crackle pattern, but without much
success... so I didn't use it for that image. But after you mentioned
it, I played with the metric of the crackle and it looks now a bit more
credible, so I included it on the last version.

   Yes, you are right... only with 2 different colorations it looks much
better now. And it was not that hard without consuming much additional
memory: on the mesh include generated by POVTree, I changed the
placement of the textures statement from inside the FOLIAGE object to
the object instance on the TREE union, and created another union TREE2
with a different texture.

   Thanks!

   The problem is my imagination... for that kind of touch it's really
poor... but let me see what I can do. :)

Thanks to all for the criticism! I've corrected some of the flaws
mentioned and will be working on the rest for the final version, ASAP.

I'm sending a test without radiosity nor focal blur, because with
area_light is taking now *very long* to render (10 hours so far, and it
didn't complete half of the image).

Some comments:
1.- Thanks God I was sit in my chair when I saw it.
2.- My wife said "... and?"; "It's 3D" I answered; "Whoao..."
3.- My little daughter couldn't believe the trees and the cars were done 
on a computer.
4.- I'm very proud of you. Great job Jaime.
5.- Sure it's redundant but "Stop posting photographsssssss" ;-)

... keep it up

Wow that's even much better :-)
I don't know if it is the no radiosity option but wet can see a lot more
details.
When I compare our 2 images, it's definitely the last which is a photo ;-)

Woodcuts --> Raytracing ??? :-)

I’ve got a book of Dürer prints although I’ve not looked at it in ages.
Shame on me!

That renowned son of Jamaica has a garden in NY? Fame!

It generally takes mothers little helpers (if your mother is Jamaican) to
get me in that state:-) Seriously tho’ Seeing things through a child’s eye
is one of the wonders of “the” artist. Putting the view on canvas (?) is
another.

It is amazing!!
Just two little corrections... :)
1) There is no speed limit on this high way.
2) It is not realistic because it can not be that the white markings on the road
have faded spots. at least not in Germany...:)

When I teach my students some CG and ray tracing, I always show them the work
here.
