“Sunrise over the horizon of an icy moon of a nearby gas giant. Plumes of water ice breach the frozen surface and are carried aloft to be drawn away by the thin upper atmosphere and eventually settle back on the surface as fine snowy particulates.”

Nice picture. I really like scifi pics. How did you get the ringed planet in your work. Is it a backdrop or a model? I have been trying to put backdrops in my work a but I do not know how. Any suggestions?
Using Terragen, I just inserted a planet and changed the color of the atmosphere. For the rings, I had created them in Pixelmator Pro and saved as a PNG file to preserve the transparency. I then created a card object, changed the anchor point of the card from bottom to center, copied the coordinates of the planet and applied them to the coordinates of the card; I also copied the radius of the planet and applied it to the xyz coordinates of the card so it would be in the same location as the planet. I opened the shader properties of the card and inserted the PNG file. I then increased the radius of the xyz coordinates enough so the rings card would be larger than the planet. I then transformed the x and z coordinates to rotate the rings to a more appealing position.
