i'd try some landscape generators if you only need landscapes (duh?!). No, seriously, what you can get with, say, terragen in 10 minutes is far more realistic than what you can get with lw in thrice that time. Of course, you are very limited in what you can do but sometimes it's more than enough. (i know, we love to use lw for everything, but sometimes and for some things there are better solutions...)

use a big polygon with a displacement map for the water and SkyTracer 2 for the sky
