I was minding my own business this morning when Travis sent me a link to this picture, and upon first looking at it, I thought that it was a cool picture, but nothing really out of the ordinary. I then realized that it was rendered/drawn. It's not a photo. The photo-realistic image is pretty darned amazing. I then stared at it a little more, and I must say, I am truly impressed. For some reason, it strikes a chord with me. The lighting is masterful, and it reminds me of a late afternoon later fall/early winder day. We'll all been stuck in traffic like that, on days like that, and while no one really enjoys it, I can't help but to be almost transported to New York City, imagining myself walking down the street in the rainstorm. Cool stuff.
