Bryce5.5 - I continue to play with panoramic projection. Here the challange was posed by the perspective twisting the hull of the wreak and the extreme distortion on the ground requireing careful consideration of the shape of the terrain as it approaches the camera and the material applied. Nothing complex on the render front, took only minutes, here more time than I care to admitt was spent tweeking the elements to work around the bizzare perspective. Both the lighthouse and the ship came out of Bryce Content Kit 1 available from www.daz3d.com as is Bryce5.5 itself which I understand can be obtained for under $80 (with a student discount) - here... http://www.campustech.com/c/campust/90922.html
I like the scene. enteresting experment.
Textures for a ship wreck should have more rust and corison and such. I should know, I work down at the Houston Ship Channel.
Have you tried out one of your Panoramics in a Poser scene? Daz has one panoramic in its free program for its faerie forest.
I sure have to give Panoramic a try.

You know, I don't object to the material used on the shipwreck,although Lakota certainly is right. To me, this is a wet clay world and except for the towers material, everything fits nicely.
