Come join our "Inspiration to Image" Render Challenge and explore the various aspects of composing a scene. This thread is for chatting about the challenge, and for posting your WIP renders. You can post your images here, before you finalize your render to show us how you are doing, or to ask for guidance if you get stumped on how to accomplish something.

Here are some educational links to info about the Golden and Fibonacci Ratios to get you started:
