Hi(gh)!

(@green: no insult intended, as I'm non-religious myself!)

As I got POV-Ray 3.5, 3.1, 3.0 and even 2.2 for DOS running perfect on 
my XP laptop, here another masterpiece from the heydays of classing POVing!

It still took my Pentium IV single-core laptop 53 minutes to complete 
(1024 by 768, using AA 0.3)... I wonder how long it may have taken on 
Mark King's computer back in 1998!

See you in Khyberspace!

Are you kidding?  Most of us atheists love Bibles (after we recover from 
the horrors therein); they're the best thing you can show to a 
questioning believer.

My render looks a lot different; I think it's because of the radiosity { 
brightness 3 } setting.  When I render it with +Q8, it looks like yours. 
  My next step will be to lower the brightness, and maybe turn off the 
ambient.

I used POV-Ray 3.5 for Unix (official Linux compile) with Version=3.1 on 
the command line.  At +Q8, my Core i7 laptop took 21 minutes, 40 seconds 
for 1000 by 750 (no AA because DoF is used), obviously using only 1 
thread.  I do not remember the statistics for the radiosity render.

I modified the scene to lower the radiosity brightness and kill the 
ambient light.  I also added a pretrace_end, and deleted the 
distance_maximum so that the scene would render with POV 3.7.  Setting 
assumed_gamma to 1.0 changed the entire mood of the scene, so I left it 
at 2.2.

Rendering without AA took 5 minutes, 16 seconds of elapsed time using 8 
threads on my quad core.  POV 3.7 can do AA with DoF, and this is what I 
attached here.  The elapsed render time was 11 minutes, 31 seconds with 
+A0.3 +AM1 +R3.

truth in this.  i am more a nonbeliever, or a noncarer, than an athiest, but
close enough.  but i am bible-shy, too embedded in the bible belt.

Indeed this looks just amazing! Much to learn for me still, to get such 
well balanced light in my scenes.
