Thank you!  I'm extremely happy with the pot and the stand, but getting 
decent tree bark on a TomTree/POV-Tree, is quite a challenge.  I'm still not 
completely satisfied, but I'll let this stand for now.  Jaime's bonsai are 
far superior in that regard.

"Rego"?  Is that a word?

More than any other scene I've created, this pleases me.  :-)  It's perhaps 
not so much from a technical perspective, but this time, I really like the 
subject, and the fact that I've included "humans".  The use of people, if 
done well, certainly creates a more dynamic and emotional setting.  Keeping 
them small helps to keep the overall picture more photorealistic, but that's 
just a nifty side-effect.
