Just to avoid confusion,  perhaps it should be noted somewhere (here? :))
that camera location must be the same for all images.  Otherwise the detail
views could show something that wouldn't be visible in the main image when
rendered at higher resolution; and if that would be OK, then why not render
three completely different views of a complex model, where none of the
images is really a closeup of another.

I'm not sure if this isn't just nit-picking, but I had to think about it
when I was trying my detail views :)

In fact, the organizers of the competition never imagined that the detail
view could be something other than a simple zoom-in of the main image!
However it's obvious from some of the questions here that this wasn't as
self-evident as we thought, so be sure that in a future competition, this
particular point will be made clearer.
Good luck for your entry, btw!

I don't think the rules are unclear as such, guess people are just a bit 
more cautious than usual because it would be so sad to get (justly) 
disqualified due to an essentially minor technical oversight when the 
prizes are so great.

Thanks!  Next time you guys organize something like this, you MUST 
figure out a way to avoid disqualifying yourselves! :D

Yeah, or at least force them to submit an impressive image, even if it's 
ineligible.  Like, "Had Gilles been eligible, this would have been his 
image."  ;-)

I'm pretty happy with my entry.  I'm trying to finish it up now, and I'll be 
leaving about 11 days for the final render +details, just in case something 
goes wrong.  I think it's my best scene yet, but I'm biased, and "my best" 
may not come close.  I know what others can do, and I know enough to know 
that they know a lot more than I know, so I work with what I now know.  Ya 
know?

But seriously, I created something that I'm proud of, so whether I place in 
the competition or not, I'll be making a poster for my own enjoyment.  :-)

Good luck to you as well!

Ok, how about a small comp for the PoV team between themselves, run by
'us' for them? If it's a 'go', I'll put my 'all' into it. Thoughts?

 Heh, yeah, I know at least. I'm the same. I'm happy with mine, and
it's the best I've produced so far, for sure.

    Too right. Can't wait to see it.

   Yes, good luck Jeremy, good luck all!  :)
