This is my first try with luxrender.
This is a theme I had in mind for a long time but never had the hardware and render engine to actually tackle it.
Blender internal did not give me the results I was aiming for so after upgrading my hardware I was finally able to give luxrender a try.
Modelled and composited in blender from 2 separate renders.
Render times were about 7 hours for the poppy with ~4000 Samples/pixel and 5 hours for the syringe ( ~3000 samples/pixel) but still some noise left.
Attached are the two raw unprocessed single renders.
