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 
still there.

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.
