Then I started to create an ecosystem. I used both the ecosystem population creation in the material editor, and the ecosystem painter (Fig.07 - Fig.09).

I used a spectral, global radiosity atmosphere, which is already included in Vue 7 Infinite, but I altered it slightly. The atmosphere is "Fair Weather".  In the Light tab, I increased the light balance towards sunlight, and I also increased the sky dome lighting gain. In the Sky, Fog and Haze tab, I increased both the sky ground density and sky mean altitude (Fig.10 - Fig.12).

Finally, I set the rendering at high detail and chose crisp as my option in the anti-aliasing strategy (Fig.13).

In post production in Photoshop, I subtly used the "unsharp mask" filter to give me an even crisper image.

Thanks!
