When I rendered this as 1920x1080, I realized I had the camera in the wrong
position, (forgot to account for a "floor thickness"), so the camera was too low
below the edge of the table.  It showed up much worse in the 16:9 aspect ratio.

Here is a version that fixes that, and makes it much less dark.
