The cast discovers their destination hidden underneath dissipating cloud cover inside of a crater.
The creative brief for this particular series of shots was to have parting cloud cover that's lit by the morning sun reveal a secret destination.  To get nice rim lighting, I laid out the cloud cover in 3D and lit two versions, one with rim light and one in shadow.  I then mixed between the two versions in the comp and laid that over the environment painting.  The image below highlights in RED the parts of the shot that were rendered in the standard pipeline.
