With 5 separate terrains for the landscape alone, quite elaborate. I did this one over a year ago, but applied library mats and it looked disgusting. I re-did it with self made mats - the middle ground flanks are with David's Blueberry Hills on third sized terrains, though.
Love the grass, especially on the small steps to the middle-right. the stone is not so good. For stone, I would go into the DTE, start a new component, add fractal bumb of a frequency of around 100-150, and move the octaves up to 5. Then put the filter to the Absolute Value, not sure what the equation is, and mess around with the A value. For colour, try Spline Interpol or Linear Interpol3. that's my sum of research on stone in the DTE. I cannot give you very much detail, as my computer with Bryce is at the shop. Just mess around to find the best result.
To the plants, they are decent, but either try some higher quality ones or get rid of them. I would opt for the former, because I feel that they add a good feeling to the scene.
the water is perfect, the terrain is good. I will give you a four and await further deveopments!

I have to agree with litoNico the grass is pretty cool, and I like the way your water glows.
I also like the tall grass on the back how did you do it?

Boy oh boy, something went awry concerning the scale: the grass should be firtrees at some distance. Since 2 see it as grass, it must be my fault. The grass-trees are made by spiky terrains burried deep under the main terrains and given some material.
I can't fool LithoNico into liking my rock material, so -- again -- I should yield to good meant criticism and try out LithoNico's recommendations. Thanks for it.
The water is the groundplane with a ?Rocky Planet? texture and indicated as ?jupiter1? material.
The firtrees in the foreground. I agree with LithoNico. They are out the object library with much elaboration of the material applied to them. Essentially, they're good if at a distance. Here, they are too near and do look blurred and unfinished. I should have used the tree lab and work out a better tree.
