Nothing too fancy here. Trying to create a sense of "land waves" receding to the horizon (and work on my cloud techniques). Also wanted to do a Vue landscape that could render in under 12 hours at 6K :-) Hope you enjoy it!

"Rolling Ridges"
Reminds me of the Blue Ridge mountains in North Carolina. This image is a peaceful as the real thing.

"One more variation?"
Just wondering how difficult it would be to make a winter render of this? Which is kind of odd for me, as usually I can't wait for winter to be over... Ooh, and maybe a night version of that as well.

"Day is better"
I like the daytime view over the blue sky variant, that magical golden light is what wins me over.

"One of your best pickles"
I love this version, and actually prefer it to the ochre-toned original. Blues and greens are my favorite backgrounds of yours and this one is really nice and peaceful.

"Pickle Jar's the best"
I actually like the pickle jar version with the blue sky best. I reminds me of the view from the light airplane as I flew over the foot hills of the Oregon Coast range.

"Streaks are a good thing"
Actually I like the streaks in the clouds. Walking in the Michigan forests and looking west over Lake Michigan (when the world was less politically correct); we'd call those "God rays".

"Exactly Right"
This is so right, it captures reality as I have seen it many times. The clouds are really the best part, spot on. My only thought is a color related one, it could be a little more colorful...but I nitpick.

"Pickle Jar Candidate"
Some night and moonlight scenes would be nice pickle jar versions.

"Nice but"
Very nice picture, reminds me of Northern California. Only problem is the streaking in the bottom right. The light rays through the trees don't look quite natural.

It is like a cross between Heliocentric and Shanshui.

"Nice, Needs a night version"
I really like the rolling hills. I'd love a night version as I prefer darker wallpapers.
