POV-Ray is for 3D raster images, while metapost is for 2D vector images. I often use POV-Ray to generate complex 3D surfaces and then overlay the image with metapost to add arrows, labels, ... Two two programs are hardly comparable. They are used for completely different needs. You need to tell what kind of images exactly you would want to have. Asymptote may lie somewhere between the two (less powerful than POV-Ray, but more 3D features than metapost).
