Important note for Mental ray users - "color at max distance problem":

   Not sure if it is a bug, it happens closer to the water surface edge, under shadows, the color transition with depth is very rough, making a noticeable line. Only happens using Final Gather, and no matter if the water surface is a plane or a solid. Increasing Final Gather settings doesn't fix the problem and increases render times. Interpolation doesn't fix it either. This happens with any transparent arch and design material using "color at max distance", even with pre-made transparent template arch and design materials.

   The only fix for this problem is making sure "force 2 sided" in render settings "common params" is turned OFF, and turning ON "back facing culling" inside the arch and design material settings (advanced rendering options). Check image below.
