Vizdepot - Finding Shore ContestVizdepot.com is proud to offer its first major rendering competition to the visualization community.
Scope: Model, Texture and Light any existing, documentable lighthouse. Use your artistry and creativity skills to produce a high quality rendering, either near or far. Use any software, plugin available to you. You may not remove the real lighthouse from its existing context, but you may manipulate the entourage to bring it to life. The intent is for your image to tell a story with the picture alone. Again, this is not a photo replication contest.
