Somewhere in Middle Earth?

Another interesting somber scene....I like the reflection on the water, the vegetation on the slopes, the jagged peaks. Stirs the imagination.

What is the small (metallic?) loopy thing in the lower right? Is it an artist's signature? Or an ancient artifact?

ps- is there a way to make the snow line more of a gradient in Bryce?

Thank you. The loopy thing is indeed my signature. It can usually be found on every of my images. not always this obvious. Yes, snow lines can be adjusted in the DTE, a bit fiddly at times. Here, however, I used the same terrain in two different resolutions and where one terrain pokes through the other, hard transitions occur.

I particularly like the foreground. To my eye I'm having some difficulty resolving the scale of the scene, as the sky seems to be out of scale with the mountains. I'd expect foreground clouds and I'd assume they'd start to co0llect just along the snow line. Other scaling indicators such as the haze seem spot on.

Thank you Rashad. Ah yes, an HDRI backdrop with clouds is nor always the ideal to mach the scale of the scene. Some low hanging volumetric clouds would probably be a good addition.
