All very good but the last one is my favorite!

Really like these, dramatic and beautiful colours.

The background moon up close

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.
