3dsmax9, Vray + Photoshop

EDIT: Tried to fix the apple inside of the bottle to blend in better..

Thanks for the DD and all your comments! Really appreciate it :meditation:

EDIT: I'm in the process of re-rendering this scene with up-to-date quality settings and more resolution.
I lost the original maps though (I do make backups, but for some reason these maps weren't included in them... grrr) so the updated version might look quite different in a positive way, I hope.
Also, thanks for everyone who posted constructive criticism and ideas for improvement. I'll take them in consideration when updating this :)

UPDATE!: Re-did the textures, made various fixes and rendered bigger. I hope you still like it!

Still Life by ~Thykka is a simple, well made scene with a painterly feel to it.

This is almost perfect. The apple and the bottle are just fine the way they are. I think the "arm" of the corkscrew ought to be lowered ever so slightly so that it's in contact with the red cloth (it looks just a little like it's floating). As far as the cork goes, I think the texture needs to be more "holey" and not so fine. Just my two-cents. ^_^ Keep up the good work!

It's freaky how close 3D can get to real life. It's a great composition, but then you realize, it doesn't exist. Great job on this. The line between reality and rendering is just that much thinner now.

Maybe it's just real life getting closer to 3D! ...or something
Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

Wow! I am absolutely amazed by the photographic realism you've achieved with all the reflections and such. But I am even more impressed with your composition and artist representation of it all, truly shows there's more to your talent than basic 3d skills!
