The ray-traced images here are quite good.
It's true that the color palette needs adjusting
(for example, the yellow here is too green and should be more orange;
the solid blue and transparent green here are too bright and should be darker;
and the transparent red-orange here is a bit muddy),
but if you ignore that, then these renderings are technically great --
especially the flawless treatment of decorated (pre-printed) elements.
Notice, by the way, the graceful renditions of Technic Flex tubes, which defy the traditional boxy ray-tracing look.
