This is, again, a re-imagining of an older scene I constructed last year with a better understanding of vray and photoshop. The diffuse pass took about 1.5 hours to render, time I used to talk to my girlfriend on the phone and finish reading my anthropology assignment. I actually had to re-render only the table and laptop (I didn't like how the shader I had chosen worked out) and composite it in, which was difficult because there is a chair blocking part of the table, so I had to use some masks to integrate the new desk and laptop successfully.
I applied a slight DOF effect but I didn't like how it looked. Click the next image to see a near and far DOF effect combined in an animated gif.

I decided that the DOF effect in this scene was removing more from the scene than it was adding, but this GIF turned out pretty nifty.
Anyways that's it for me today. Cheers!
