Not easy to achieve and also a very beautiful picture. I much prefer the light of the last one!  :)

So do I; the mist was an experiment with shadows from objects, but it didn't come out as I hoped it would. But just took a few hours more. The lights are the illuminated glass parts of a lantern, but I tried some glow around them by adding a pop of invisible rocks, same seed as the lanterns with luminance of 6 or so. It's bareley visible and kind of tricky to get right.
Btw. the road system is available at NWDA, so anybody can do this in principle.
I like this concept too, but have to work on the rock. And I might need to get closer to that bridge, or you won't recognize that guy waving...

The rockwork is fantastic and the POV is spectacular, not sure about the lights on a cliff face path leading to a rope (?) bridge though. The light and the sense of space is very appealing.  :)

Dune

These things grow, sort of. Started out as a rockwall and a complete bridge, then I thought about breaking down the bridge (ZBrush), and adding some planks (no rope). Then thought about adding the mountain track, then the lights came into it. I'll probably drop them again. Might add an old car on those planks, just for the fun of it.
And the rock still needs work (it started out as experimentation with several setups).

Dune

Other version.

I thought Ver 3 + road was already a winner myself.

I prefer versions with lights.
For the rock formation I like the version BigRock_18-02-18_v5 + road-test2, but prefers the half-light mood of the version BigRock_v4 + road-2.

Dune

Still not finished experimenting, and I might as well post. Changed the bridge too.

I like them all, but the last one is really very impressive.

Looks like a road in India or Nepal....without the painted stripes... :P
Very nice render!!!

Especially the last one is fantastic!! Very atmospheric.

Thanks guys, but now for some decent rocks  ;)

Agree with the others. I personally like this best as it gives context to the bridge///I like the "tour bus" down the road. Nice detail also handy for context. Keep on blowing my mind thank you very much!!!
