Yea, on the globe itself, on the top part, you can see the subdivisions. Just smooth it out, and itll look great. Wheres the falling snow?

nice
btw, do ya think, if it is possible to show us the thickness of the glass? the glass is too think imho. in real globe, the glass is quite thick coz usually the put water or liquid or oil inside, so that when you shake it, all the snows or what ever inside the globe would animate.

just my 10 cents

You're on the right track man!
That wood is really beautiful!

The glass needs something.
It seems more like the scewne inside is being seen through
a magnifying glass rather than some actually INSIDE a
glass globe.
Are you using a two sided peice of glass? I'm just trying to put my finger on the reason it looks that way.

also you might want to use two objects, one for glass, one for water, each with their own index of refraction.

water is ( i think )1.3 and glass is like 1.2 or something.

Just my opinion. ( and it really is pretty )
