Just Rendered this out. Wondering what people think of it. Birds were added in Photoshop.

Forgot to add that I used a tutorial that I got off www.lwg3d.org with my own tweaks added here and there to get the look I desired.

Hope everyone enjoys the pic.

The birds help, but it lacks a sense of scale - a very common problem with fractal generated mountains. I think you need to add something of a recognisable size in there, mabe a dead tree or a hut.

Also consider more use of slope gradients, for example to add white snow dust onto the flatest areas, and maybe add specular to the steep cslopes that would have barest rock. I have also had good results to make bump more extreme on steep slopes, the idea being that this is rough bare rock with no accumulated mud to smooth things off...
