An image of a nuclear reactor I made recently. Can't quite get the glow effect I
wanted.

It looks good but if I were you I would shut it down PDQ. It should not 
be glowing :-P

Cherenkov radiation. Perfectly normal for an active nuclear reactor.

Maybe a bit too purple though.

Well, I did /not/ call it perfectly normal to stand around and watch a
nuclear reactor core up close while it looks like that. Better get a few
feet of concrete between you and that glow.

Apparently you get superpowers if you're exposed to the stuff.

Good detailed replica of the one shown at

Maybe some kind of combination of scattering+emitting media with radiosity and
camera blur would help?

I like your image (at the moment is my desktop wallpaper). Compared with 
the Wikipedia one, perhaps it lacks some ground fog.

While I haven't seen a reactor core in person, in the photos I've seen, the glow
is on the slightly green side of blue.  I would describe it as cerulean.
