Missed the POV-Ray building and it's POV-Ray logos.

The POV-Ray headquarters is located in Port Whatmough on Whatmough (HD 
28185 b IV), will have been erected in 2242 CE and communicates via 
intertemporal tachyon broadcast with us!

See you in Khyberspace!

This is great.

I too am having trouble seeing where the light probe starts and the rendered
scene ends - I assume the trees and sky are part of the environment, but I can't
tell with the building (particularly with those POV logos!).

I love the concept for the sphere, but it seems curiously hard to comprehend,
visually speaking. Although I suspect a real-life version would look similarly
weird until one got close up to it. Great work with the rocks, I like a good
POVRay boulder - having tried myself, I can appreciate how hard they are to get
looking real.

Also, I appreciate the detail views - were they dedicated zoomed renders, or was
 the original large enough that you could crop them out?

Bill
