I made the best configurations in order to achieve a good render. The Modo rendering system is really fast and high quality. For this image, the render time was 9 minutes, which is pretty short for a high quality render such as this (Fig13 - 14).

After rendering, I then added a new layer and selected Render Output, and from Effects I selected Ambient Occlusion in order to later go into Photoshop to do some retouching of the image (Fig15 - 16).

After some final tweaks in Photoshop, my work was complete (see image below).

Conclusion

The scene is complete, but there were some issues that I encountered on several occasions during the rendering phase. The reason is simple: when I started learning Modo, I studied modelling with it, but I didn't have the chance to look over rendering and texturing properties much. So whilst I was creating this scene I spent 3 or 4 days making test renders simultaneously. That was the real deal for me for a short time, but I believe I have created a visually good scene in the image. It is possible for me to also use these compasses in a future project, and I can already say that it will be a more complex scene.
