A few more.
Displacement maps, fake stones and power fractals. I'm not sure about the vegetation, it's probably better if I leave it out.

Fascinating!

I think that with the vegetation is a matter of opinion. I like it better without it.
Or insert blocks in front and put up larger trees with grass, I myself am still trying, but my pictures are more abstract ;)
Fractal, surreal, abstract, the main thing is not everyday like the bread roll with liver cheese from the sausage stand around the corner, although it is of course great that there are sausage stands without which the social bustle would come to a standstill ;)

I like *some* of the vegetation, but it does not seem to belong on the tops of the rocks. The plants in the *cracks* make sense to me though. Small bushes, grasses, etc. would work there and help to add realism as well as better distinguish the elements of the image.

The vegetation in between and even on top of the rocks should stay.

I can attest that Nature can find abodes for life even under the least hospitable circumstances. In my parents' garden I have a white gravel "basin" which is underlaid with two layers of plastic mulch. Still, given all these conditions, each spring I can see a few blades of grass growing up from, what is essentially, a few grains of dirt that occasionally drops in between the gravel.

Anyway, beautiful work René. No matter which decision you take, it's gonna be a cool pic.

What would be interesting from my abstract point of view are rusty robot arms or wire arms that come out of cracks and on which grass tufts grow. There is also a leader arm with a shrubbery as a trademark :) ;)
