Congratulations to the winners, those are some great images that show the versatility of Octane! I love this playful easy working piece of software!
I have to note that I'm a bit confused about the advice we got from John Carmack just before submission time to try to place objects at least 1.5 meters away from the camera for viewing comfort and to avoid any motion sickness. I have noticed that his top 3 preferences are not following that rule and even more, the winner has everything at less than 1.5m to 3m from the camera at most so it's pretty painful to look at. I know it was a just an advice and not a rule for the contest and that artistic interpretation wins in the end but I saw it did influence some people in changing their renders, including myself.
See you all in Round03!
