As long as it doesn't deteriorate both "simplicity and realism" I don't see why you could not, but that's just me :)

You may add water or juice or milk or whatever material your computer can cope with..

I don't think it's ultra sexy - but I guess we'll see what people manage. 23 days to go! :O

Oh guys, nice renderings here... I actually sent my version to render, but it's sooo crispy... I hope I'll get a fairly noise-free result before the 30th of may. ;-)

Exactly... gettin the crisp out of the cauchy takes ages. May limettes are still too noisy... 20 hours rendered now.
But, I've got patience... :-)

Nickname: zeitmeister

Version of Indigo used: v1.1.18 Win32 under Darwine on Mac OS X 10.5.7

Rendering time / CPU's: 26h, 30min / Mac Pro 8Core

List of tools used:
- Cinema 4D
- Photoshop CS3

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, enough with the patience...
here's my version. I decided to remove the old window completely in order to get more nice diffuse transmission to the lemons. Still quite grainy there, even after noise reduction... but I hope you'll like it anyway. :-)

Here's the high resolution version:

Lemon texture found at Google image search. PostPro in Photoshop: Noise reduction, color grading, slight chromatic abberation at the images edges. Chromatic abberation inside the jug comes from material.
