I decided that it was about time I worked on producing a realistic Earth. This is the first result of that effort. Some things I like - the clouds, for instance, but other things do not look at all right to me. This is something that will likely go on being revised for a very long time to come!
Additionally, this render makes use of my Flooded Earth map, where I raised the sea level by several metres in an attempt to simulate the effect of the ice caps melting to some degree.
