-Original scene by Stephen Coy (tiles.v)
-Blue metallic sphere texture by Tekno Frannansa (TEK)
-Pawn object by Douglas Otwell
-Skysphere from Mike Kosts' series of real skies

Swapped out the original cube to a cylinder-cube-sphere thingy.

The pawn object by Douglas can be found on the POV-Ray CD-ROM,
"\source\scenes\pov1\pwndat.zip" or if you have POV-Ray v3.7 or above, it should
be in "\scenes\advanced\pawns.pov"

Ah! A tough one! ;-)

Both have their attractive points indeed. Again, instinctively, I would 
choose the black-tiled one. It harmonises better with the objects imho.

Wow.
That textures on those, and the Voronoi tiling is great!
Nice to see some of these simpler but great looking scenes getting some
re-rendering.   :)

As usual, I sort of agree with Thomas, it is a tough decision but that is where
the agreeing ends as I prefer the white tiles on black background ;-)

The object look better on black tiles but the white tiles look better than the
black ones, very nice quality images/composition.

I dare to say white, and perhaps with a less reflective surface.
A very nice work!

As usual, you are absolutely right. ;-)

Very funny!

I did exactly the same tiles in 2002! Of course, I'm talking about the
geometry, not the lighting and texture, which I've never mastered!

I prefer the white one as well, because it creates a better composition of
negative spaces. opening up frame to be less cluttered and objects dettached for
the eye to travel between.
