Daz Studio is a great application for creating good renders in your 3D scene. No better example of this is beachsidelegs's 3d scene "Visitation". This artist has a fabulous gallery at Renderosity.com and Visitation is only one of many beautifully rendered scenes. Glass or any translucent material is very hard to get right in a render because so many things can go wrong.
Beachsidelegs does a great job of visualizing an alien visitation scene. One doesn't think of a beautiful forest as background for this kind of scene. BSL also manages to create a convincing eerieness to the scene through color and depth. Visitation tells a story the viewer probably shouldn't know about. This adds to the weirdness of the scene.
