» Una jungla a punto de ebullición, en Costa Rica 101 Lugares increíbles - 26 sep 2011 Es una zona de densa selva tropical, pero entre el follaje, aflora vapor que nace de charcas en ebullición. Tampoco faltan zonas donde el lodo de marmita hierve, y lugares donde la temperatura se vuelve insoportable. Apenas debajo de la superficie, la actividad del volcán cercano está presente, aunque apenas da algunos indicios. Rincón de la Vieja, en Costa Rica es una combinación nada usual de actividad geotérmica cubierta de una densa selva, y dicen, es uno de los rincones más fascinantes de todo el país. Imagen Graeme Churchard El nombre Rincón de la Vieja, nace del propio volcán a 1,916 metros sobre el nivel del mar, un recuerdo de que nuestro planeta no duerme, aunque en ésta ocasión, compite con la jungla en una pulseada en donde la vida parece adaptarse sin contratiempos: lagos que contienen sulfuro de dióxido dióxido de azufre, vapor y actividad térmica en medio del verde y una biodiversidad increíble que hasta podría abrumar al volcán.

20 Architectural Renderings that stand out from the crowd Due to the fact that high end rendering technology is becoming more and more accessible and the number of people interested in architectural visualization is growing rapidly, the quality level of architectural renderings has dramatically increased during the last years. When Brazil and V-Ray engines first appeared, using global illumination in a rendering was enough to make it look photorealistic and differentiated itself from the competition. Nowadays one has to go to great lengths if extreme photorealism is the main focus (Check out the post that featured some of the most realistic architectural renderings I have ever seen). With that in mind, I have compiled a list of 20 renderings which I consider to be original; some of them have great composition, others use a wonderful chromatic palette, but all of them stand out in one way or another and can be considered art, not just commercial work.
