Could have fooled me. With the exception of the background it looks amazing!

Also I AM an expert in Photoshop.

The car on the other hand to me is whatever. You can do the same thing in a vector program like Illustrator or Freehand.

Wow,

It looks very good. I would love to play a game that featured that kind of detail without spending multiples of thousands of $'s.

Just wondering, ATI's response to this will be...???

For me it's the other way around, balls look meh, but the car looks like a real Toyota IQ: http://www.automotorsport.se/bigpix/2008/toya_iq_bak_big.jpg

The light on the balls is WAY off. Just look at it! they got a unnatural shine! ;) Im not saying i can do it better, ive just seen better raytracing pictures :)
Billiards tables have multiple lights hanging on top of them: http://www.hardtimesbellflower.com/Images/HTroom.jpg

Ball picture is similar to this, but they wanted to mess with big aperture setting like effect and that messes up the scene (+it's blurry even in the focus part)

I think the balls look great, give them a diff background and will look pretty damn awesome

the car seems too glossy though it looks great too,

I think if they can control the amount they look like fluid :/ (they seem too shiny to me personally) then it will start taking off more and more

Naah, I agreed with you in the end :)

Well it has been properly waxed :) (and it's a black car, in a black room, with massive bright lights)
