Maybe the sky is a bit too blurred, but very nice effects indeed!

We agree. It's just the 'Depth of Field' effect being used. You can see it in the "Post Effect" drop menu in the Atlas UI on the left.

Hope that you guys don't go crazy and start overdoing these things.
Stay subtle, sometimes HDR&Co does more harm than good.

We're talking about an historic RTS game. Not a Michael Bay movie. :-)
I can almost see the Transformers in the horizon.

It's just an option, one more tool for map designers, if you don't like it you will be able to turn it off ;) Also, as Mythos_Ruler said above, this is just a WIP screenshot, so the effects will be tweaked a lot more before we're happy with them :)

All of the effects will be customizable by the scenario designer.

Some work by myconid, adding HDR, Bloom, Distance Fog, and other post-processing effects to the game. Here is an actual work in progress screenshot of the additions to our Atlas scenario editor, where the player can adjust these post-processing effects on a map-by-map basis, giving the designer unparalleled control over the environment of their custom scenario.
