very nice - I usually don't comment on these unless it blows me away. This one does. The colors are outstanding with this scene. One one suggestion - higher resolution if possible.

Very nice, good realism acheived here. Agree with Tracy about the res., also the terrain in the centre is a little angular, I would suggest generating another layer on top to add a bit more texture. I like the clouds, they really add to the mood.

Thanks for the comments!

I would love to render it at a higher resolution, but the free version of Terragen is locked to a maximum of 1280x960 and the $79 USD required to unlock it is simply too much. :/

Very good job indeed and one of the better ones I've seen! The distant landscapes always look best in Terragen and only when there is foreground does it take away from the realism of the image. I think the island peaks could have been softened a bit like the background mountains. The water and sky look awesome as well as the slight curvature of the water which gives a feeling of the vastness of the landscape. Overall it is a superb image:-)

Lovely image, nice and contrasty. Very realistic and reminds me when I was travelling between the North and South Islands of New Zeland by ship.

This is gorgeous work. It always seems that Terragen makes much more realistic work than Bryce. You did a great job with composition, and making it look overall realistic. High marks from me.

^^^I agree! :)
However, the foremost cloud looks a little faux...not sure why. :p
Nice, overall.

Clouds looking good... in a terragen? what? The fog also looks good, it's a pain trying to get decent clouds but this really works for it. A good one.

Is this for the "a whole lot of nothing" contest? If it is, you did a great job! I like the idea, but I have seen something very similar in another gallery. Almost exactly the same. There are a few differences I noted right off the bat though, so they're not photo copies of one another or anything. I like the picture.
