this is my first test with Blender. I tried to follow a tutorial at http://www.digitalproducer.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=5139. I had some problems with fins and transparency.

That’s why I rendered using them both and combined the picture from those renders.
Here’s the result:
All comments are welcome.
