A Distant Shore
This is my new personal matte painting. I created basic atmosphere in Vue and finished in Ps.

Thanks for watching.

wow, saw the top part first as the internet downloaded the image, was bored at that point, then I saw the sand and water, really beautiful work done there.

Thanks for sharing

Vue is an amazing piece of software (and one of my favorites), but it is still fairly obvious which clouds are from photos, and which are from the render. It's the edges that really give them away - I think you need to do a lot more painting / photo work to the cloud edges to make this scene look believable.

The ground is great, though - good work.

Yes Alex, you right. Vue's clouds need a lot of post-work before it will have natural look. I was really inspired by Dark Hoffman's work in Vue.
