Can you send the .tgp file? If not, I'm wondering how you created the snow, and what quality settings have you used. :)

Very nice.  It looks genuinely photographic.  Is that a moon I see in the distance?

Hi calico,
That is beautiful!   Looks like a very faint moon in the distance.

How do you post a picture here on the forum?
I am doing my first render on my other Mac, I can hear its fans. 
The instructions are a godsend!

I really love the faint moon in the distance. Wonderful subtlety. :)

Very nice, the moon is a nice touch

Here's my latest effort - still trying to get the hang of populations and shaders  ???

Thanks for the complements! This was actually an extremely simple scene lol. I just used a power fractal node for the mountain. Changed the base colors to brown and dark grey towns. Added white surface layer and adjusted the maximum slop. Thats it for the colors. The clouds I added some low-level clouds with a density set to 10 and sime high level with high coverage. Then rotated the sun to be to the left and put it low enough to create that effect. Oh...and yes...that is a very subtle moon you see in the distance :)

Here is a not so good render. This one I took from space just to show the moon. Same planet the only thing changed is the hieght of the sun and the hieght of the camera.

My very first!  This TG2 seems to be easier for a beginner like me to make an image that looks sort of OK.
Thanks for the great tutorials here!

Hi tuggles,

Nice picture.   The best bit for me is the covering of the snow, which has been done very nicely.

very nice... I too would like the tga file just to see what colours you used for the rock...
or you could just post how you did it, eg how many shaders etc

cheers

BTW the shared files forum here is going to get a lot of use ;D ;D ;D
