Hi Neox00

Welcome.

It might help other members if you say which version of Lumion you are using, and also show some of the images you have rendered, along with the settings.

Lumion is not a raycast renderer, so your expectations about what is or should be a realistic image and lighting may need to change a little.  That said, there's certainly plenty of Lumion renders that have really great quality, comparable (some would argue) with or close to VRay or mentalRay.

Using Sun Light in combination with Global Illumination, HyperLight, and when required well placed Omni Lights to add further lighting characteristics is what is generally used.

thanks for your fast reply i am actually using Lumion 4.5 , and using the default lightning system existing in lumion , it got me good results so far but when i heard about lightning using spot lights i experienced reducing the sun light intensity and played with spot lights a bit but i couldn't get such soft shadows as mentionned on my first post i can't get such good redered trees and grass if there's any tips regarding this
