The first important thing I considered in my scene was the atmosphere. I started with a plain, fair weather spectral atmosphere with radiosity. Then I changed the settings as follows for the lighting, the clouds and sky settings (Fig.01 - Fig.03).

I set the z camera position at a value of 370m. The whole scene was situated above the clouds. The result was quite interesting and I didn't know at this stage of the conception what kind of objects I would like to add to populate my scene. I had downloaded many weeks ago some of the beautiful models created by Thor Danielsen aka originalmoron. I first put his model of a landing platform just above the camera. After some attempts with different positions of the sun, and different textures, the result was quite interesting (Fig.04).

I used some boolean modeling for the buildings on the right, and also some of the beautiful "nurnies" provided as free objects on Thor's website (Fig.05).

jaw dropping image (although I do wonder how these people are able to breath in the stratosphere).
