Had some fun experimenting here with the light. The image has two suns. The primary sun is set at a 300 heading with a -1 elevation which is below the horizon. At this point, the foreground is too dark so I added a second sun which also is set at a 300 heading; but, with Light atmosphere unchecked, elevation set at 12, Strength set at 5.5, Cast shadows, Do soft shadows, Glow in atmosphere unchecked; and, Visible disc unchecked. This set up appeared to yield a reasonably well lighted foreground notwithstanding a negative altitude setting which makes for a very nice atmosphere for a sunset or rise.

Additionally, I added one of Oshyan's Fill lights set 180 degrees from the main suns at a 10 degree elevation and strength at 0.13125 - Cast shadows unchecked.

All plant models used are by Walli available at Silva 3D and NWDA. They include:

• .tgo Dry shrubs #02 and #09.
• .tgo ND01 Grass v3 and Dry Grass patch 3.
• .tgo Chamaecyparis variant 2.
• .obj CL01a Abies White Fir (through Xfrog).

Clouds, Fake stones and PGS Grass Evolution are by dandelO; and, used along with Simple Camouflaged surface by FrankB - all downloadable at the Planetside forum.

Wonderful dreamy image Bob, like a scene out of a fairy tale. The light is the whole rest. I would love to go camping there :D.

This worked out well! The sunset is beautiful, and doesn't at all look like a two-sun sunset. If it's any consolation, a photographer has the same problems! :) The mountains are lovely, and I like all the little plants. Nice composition.

From back to front this is perfection...Can't count how many times I've seen this in real life and you've managed to capture it spot on with the shadows through the various ground cover...Well balanced and excellent lighting!

Thank you all. I am working on another version where it wouldn't look so cartoony.

I love the atmosphere and sunset...also the way the plant shadows seem to point to the horizon and focus the viewers attention...excellent work!
