  Ever notice how people in a zombie movie never already know how to
  kill zombies? Ask 100 random people in America how to kill someone
  who has reanimated from the dead in a secret viral weapons lab,
  and how many do you think already know you need a head-shot?

I think this image has one of the best texturing and lighting I have seen
done with POV-Ray in a long time.

  I actually went and tried to replicate the same effect, but was unable to.
My hat goes off to your achievement.

You have made a very nice render! This sort of thing is why some of us were
attracted to using raytracers like POV-Ray in the first place.

> Render time: 8h 25min...

Ouch. Compositing techniques could be used for a scene like this, effectively
speeding up the whole render. If done right, there would be no noticeable
difference from a traditional render. I really should write up a tut about
that...

I tried to shamelessly copy your design with my own chess set, but
I couldn't get even close...

    I'm not putting the OP down here, but when I first looked at the 
original image, I thought that there might be some kind of light-source 
under selected pieces. It's that good.

    Good image Warp, I really like your version too.

Thank you very much for all the motivating comments. Iíve tried to correct some
mistakes and put focal blur since the first version. Iíve uploaded a mid-phase
image of a close render, but when the rendering is over Iíll show you the whole
finished image.

The original image was made to a speed contest with a 1 week deadline, so I
didnnít have enough time (and still donít have the necessary technical
knowledge) to make all the details perfect. On the chessboard you can see a
Peter Lékó vs. Vladimir Kramnik match from 2004.

You can find the source code below (with Hungarian comments):

www.raytracer.hu/temp/chess.pov

Iím a beginner in POV-Ray, so the source code is pretty simple, but despite of
it I hope it can be interesting for someone.

Warp, congratulations for your chess-image, very nice work.

Gaf

A beginner??
You achieve way better than me after more than 10 years!!! I am going to 
hide inside a deep hole in the ground and never come up again....  :-)
