I've been putting this together "off, and on" for about a week now. I finally got around to rendering it this morning. This simple object proved to be one of the more difficult renders ever for me. Getting the Argon gas into the bulb was a real trick! Thanx 4 lookin'. =)

Another absolute stunner from you, Randy. Its the details in your images that most hold the attention, in this case - the filament, the Edison screw and the bulb's reflection are all rendered with truly awesome precision. I also find interesting the non-spherical shape of the bulb.

I can see why the argon gave you so much difficulty. [And I though it was just a lot of hot air inside a lightbulb!] Gives a whole new meaning to airbrushed.

A great image that lights up my desktop a treat!

Randy, I saw this image just in the VB and it 'kept me really tight'. So I was searching for it in the 'new images' gallery and you see, by this comment, that I've found it. My qualification: 'it's a stunning image.' Very well done! Thanks (for sharing) & regards, Cornelius

A simple, appealing and strangely elegant desktop. By 'simple' I do not, of course, mean it was simple to _make_, but often it takes more work to create a simple result than an apparently more complex one.

I honestly have no idea how much work this sort of thing takes or how it is done. This means I'm very impressed but probably not very good at telling when to be more and less impressed!

Good job. I really like the simple non-colouring of this.

Now the EU has decided to outlaw the sale of these, can we expect an energy-efficient replacement for this? I can't remember the deadline, but you would have several years, at least. (If, of course, the plan ever actually works.)

Just kidding, of course.

Once again you totally blow me away, although I see that no actual light bulbs were harmed in the making of this picture, although I worry about the level of your concentration and I hope you took lots of time off while you were doing this...amazing stuff, my friend.

Very nice rendering, thanks. (I downloaded it) for sharing, but it looks like neon gas to me in your bulb.
