How do I take pictures in high quality?

SUch as this: http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1130096

Mine come out bad quality, even when I render it in-game

Please Note: My settings are on full and my computer can run Crysis 2 and Battlefield 3 on the highest settings with no screen/game lag.

play around with some shadow settings in the console.

back away and zoom up.

altho I think this pic has some editing in it, those are the basic steps

Well look at this pic, I did what you are saying. . .

the difference there is high quality shadows (there’s a thread on it, i can’t remember how you do it) and a scene that is well-populated with characters and objects

and well lit. light your pictures with lamps and lights
