A pretty simple scene I let cook forever. Enjoy.
(60 hours on low-end Pentium, modelled in Blender 243, rendered with 08_stable)

nice image Bdb, this is sunlit?

Thanks, No sun. A sphere meshlight in the lamp, a plane in the window, and another, fainter plane behind the wall partition.

Would this help rendering speed, 'cause I am battling with one with daylight (interior) and it's taking forever, and when I say forever I mean FOREVER

yes, it helps and as you can't see outside, here, it's not too bad
the only thing, that doesn't get faked, this way, is the sun position... the light more or less comes straight.

The one major problem I see is the aliasing on the front chair leg with the specular highlight from the lamp.
You need to set supersample_factor to 3, I presume it was on 1?

Thanks to all,
Hi Ono, yes, SSF was set at 1. Shame on me.
JoeGiampaoli: Do you mean a meshlight as opposed to a sun? Interior renders with sunlight are fantastic, but they do take forever to clear. I do quite a lot of those at high resolutions, and they just seem to stop clearing after a while, especially if you have a lot of reflections and high-res textures and bump maps... Part of the idea with this one was to bring the setting back to a minimum so I could get a very clean result within an acceptable time (even though SSS did not help).

nice scene! i like the giant chocolate sphere.... mmm chocolate

very good lighting (very soft like manitwo said) and nice composition.
I would have put a book on the table instead of that giant chocolate-like ball, but well...

Thanks Docteur. Although this doesn't even start to get anywhere close to your exploits
You're right about the sphere. The SSS is not even very good on it. Hardly noticeable.

great lighting, nicely composed scene, but the reflective ball is a bit cheesy. this scene cries for a logo somehow, i cant explain it, but it just seems like one of those renderer ad scenes or even like a furniture ad.

Simple scene, but very pleasant to look at.
