Pot of Gold (for multiple monitors)

I’ve added a new render of “Pot of Gold” this morning. The first version, while rated very highly by Members, had a rather glaring scale problem (one that my 10 year old son noticed immediately when first saw it).

I also went about things a little differently this time. I rendered a 9830 x 2048 scene and then used that to create the single-screen versions. I have dual and triple-screens but no 4K version yet (sorry). This render takes so long (due to all of the complex lighting interactions going on with the water) that I was afraid a 12288 x 2560 render would tie-up Bucephalus for a fortnight.

The original is still available in the Pickle Jar for comparison. I’m interested to hear your feedback!
