These are excellent!
Some of the terrain only ones (close ups) have a very photographic "look" to them. Are you using much post processing to get that?

Depends on the picture.
I often render with low contrast then tweak it in photoshop. But I do different things everytime, depending on the picture, and on what mood I want to achieve. MY only rule is to only do colour correction and no other manipulation like adding anything etc.
And a little film grain. As cameras have a unique way to capture light-be it on film or digital- I don't think it's cheating as terragen can't simulate these things.

Here's a more extreme example, with a strong contrast version.

Critiques, comments are welcome. :)

Some more exoplanet renders.
These have two suns, a small red one in front and some bigger bluish illuminating from the back.

Wow, just gorgeous. The DOF and slight grain that you add really enhance the in-camera effect . . . if it weren't for the unearthly (and brilliant) colors and subject matter, you'd swear they were photographs.

All very realistic in my eyes. I like especially the DoF in the last one.

Thanks,I actually stopped using the DOF effect as I overdid it in the past, but yeah I like using some grain etc to add some slight photorealism.
