Simple terrain with a simple material. The grainfield is a cube with a volumetric material, the tree a Sassafras modeled in Arbaro with my own wood and foliage materials. Sky and ambient light by the ErmClouds05_SD HDRI from the Sunless HDRI Skies set (available at Daz 3D), the key light by the sun and a Distant Light as supporting light opposite the sun. A dark sky lies over tha landscape.
What is the duration of the render of this beautiful work?

Thank you. The sun has 25% shadow softness, HDRI has no shadows and because this can result in very flat light (as it did here), a faint distant light opposite the sun and with shadow breaks that flatness up. Rendered in normal priority premium with soft shadows and 9 rpp on my 7 years old computer in 45 minutes. Leaves are 60% translucent.
