There are a lot of sample scenes going from trivial to advanced that 
come with POV-Ray.

Look in C:\Users\<user>\Documents\povray3.7\scenes
Start with /textures and it's sub folders, then /lights, /camera, 
/objects, /interior and /radiosity

For more advanced stuff, look into /advanced and /subsurface

Render a sample, look at the result, change something, render again and 
see the difference.
