This is obviously the start of a WOW WIP :)

The POV is great. I also like the mix of dry ground and scattered trees on the left.
The fog needs some work - especially on the right side it looks strange.

It's an interesting render  ??? :o So did you mask the white into the terrain and used the same across the trees?

All the 'white' is cloud following terrain, there's no other white in the image IIRC.

I actually really like this aside from that odd cloud bit on the right. :D

Thanks Oshyan, I'd considered cropping that out and now I think I will...bugs my ass as well.

It looks to me like the clouds are following the shape of the trees and all.
Doe it go through a renderer or something?

In the Cloud go to Functions>Altitude offset function and add in the terrain you wish the cloud to follow and use the function multiplier slider to select height of follow..just play around as that's what I did here.
