Well, it is perfectly doing its job.

I notice that you use /some/ color in the rgbt of the water, despite a 
transmit of 1. Personally, I have not noticed this approach did add 
anything (I may be wrong) and simply use  rgbt 1, in general. Using 
'filter' would be a different matter of course.

Very good. I am increasingly using the displacement function of Poseray. 
It does not get all the attention that it merits.
