thanx

hmm…your lighting seems a little bright…it really stands out on the RED book especially…i would lower the emittence a bit…

also maybe use a few more random samplings in the AO…looks a little grainy.

and one more thing(sorry for all the bad stuff) i would work on the book textures

but over all…this is a great image ! keep up the good work

It is looking good, but the shells aren’t prominent enough. This picture is about shells (I am assuming), hense the title, but they are a mere detail here; pushed off to the side. Focus more on them and put more in the scene.
