Despite the software limitations of the time, this is still a really nice concept, one which could use a good update. Seems like everyone here agrees to. This is why I love this site and your work, just when I think I've seen everything you have to offer, BAM! A blast from the past or a great new render.

The atmosphere this scene conveys is absolutely perfect. I would love to see a redo if you feel like it, you could really knock it out of the park with your current skills and software.

...and I came across this. This is awesome, and I agree with everyone before me - this would be a great update opportunity! I know there's "Summerwood" with all the fireflies, but there's a different 'feeling' between looking at fireflies off your back deck and being in the woods.
Not entirely sure how I missed it before, I'm pretty sure I've gone over this whole damn website by now! LOL

I love this one and would love to see a update with your new software. I live in the Sierra's but grew up in Pennsylvania and I miss those summer evenings with the lightning bugs.

"I'm with him"
I agree :) The open studio with the fireflies and the trees has such an element of peace about it, but also lived in - like someone lives here, but has just stepped out for the moment. A sharing of someone's private haven. Very intimate.

This image is amazing. And it would be even more amazing with the new software. :)
