Yes. Personally, I hope there are other POVers out there who have done
things very unlike my image. POV-Ray is so versatile and good for so
producing so many varied results, that I think it will be great to see a
huge variety of "what can be done". As I've jokingly said before, trying to
fit every really-cool POV-Ray feature into one image would be great, but
realistically, it couldn't be done. However, having many images each
presenting certain features seems like a great idea. But I can see how it
will be difficult for the judges. But hey, not my problem... ;-)
