I intend to put a great deal more work into my image. I have already
started to fix some of the technical problems. The funny thing is that
certain types of technical problems can look like "features" from a
distance, but they look quite awful in the larger renders. So then I had to
make adjustments for that as well.
Anyway, I've said all along that I had a huge list of things that I wanted
to do with my image, and it was simply a matter of doing what was
technically feasible and a matter of dealing with the time-constraint of the
original 2.5 months. Now I'm adding in some of those other features/objects
that time forced me to leave out of the original. When I get all of that in
there, and when I get my new renders all done, I'll withdraw and resubmit.
Worst case, something happens to me and I can't resubmit, the old image is

In my opinion, if you are aware of ANY problems with your image, whether
technical or artistic, I think it would be worthwhile to spruce it up. Of
course, there is always the possibility of ruining a good image, but I guess
that's a risk you'll have to weigh.
