Maxwell Render for SketchUp competition winners announced

In November, our friends at Next Limit Technologies announced the release of the Maxwell for Google SketchUp plugin, a dedicated photo-renderer that operates entirely inside of SketchUp. Soon after, they issued a challenge to see who could make the juiciest render using either the free or licensed version of the plugin. The winners of this first Maxwell for SketchUp render competition were announced this week, and they are, in a word, delicious. See for yourself.

I think Karlis should have won first place. Daylight rendering is the easiest to manipulate. Karlis had to deal with light and dark spaces which has far greater challenges than Brodie's. Don't get me wrong Brodie's is nice but not as good as Karlis thats my view
