Very impressive!  That should go into Terragen marketing to show what can be done.  :D

Thanks again, guys!
Here is an update. I took Ulco's advice and reduced the colour variation of the trees on the right side, added some more structure to the sand and additionally changed the trees on the island a bit and increased the colour variation here.

Damn, Hannes - I am always amazed by how sharp and lively your images are! Tell me it's postwork! :D

What a nice place to be!

I didn't believe that such a realism is possible with Terragen.
Created after a real picture...how crazy is this!!!

RESPECT HANNES

Thank you all! Btw, this time the only postwork is a bit chromatic aberration (apart from downscaling). I tried to do as much as I can within TG, so there is no need for too much pw.
That meant I heavily played with the atmospheric settings and adjusted contrast and gamma values until it roughly looked like in the reference image.

Very, very good indeed! The latest version is just not quite bright/exposed enough though, I think. Maybe you want a better result than the reference image? :D

Beautiful and very ingenious. As far as I am concerned, working from a photo or sketch is the most difficult thing to do in Terragen.

Very impressive,,,KUDOs and ditto on all previous compliments; but the thing I wasn't convinced by was the foreground water where it hits the beach on the right. It isn't reflecting the palms so I'd suspect a camera, tweak and maybe more transparent with more obvious waves.
