Have you wondered how the lighting was done for the above render? Check out this week's winner's comment.

How, then, can you too qualify for this award? Please have in mind that this award is reserved for those that are on par with or that excel top notch works published by artists and studios.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
I've been using Blender professionally for over 5 years, collaborating with many top clients all around the world. I'm currently running chocofur.com website along with small 3D CG production studio and Blender assets store.

About "Street in Lyon:"
This was quite specific, client-based project, where I was asked to re-create an existing building with its current, worn and unpleasant look. I took this a as chance to test Cycles pointiness shading attribute for creating "dirt" shaders, as well trying to illuminate the scene using HDR maps only. I think it worked quite well, especially in terms of lighting. It's basically a single HDR image that generates very convincing illumination, shadows and general feel.
