In these panoramas I used to include clouds (I'll post other examples), but not all clients like them. They give a aditional perspective to the map.
As these maps I'm posting are for magazines, I must finish them within 5 o 6 days, so they may be not perfect. This particular map may had a better look if I had time to use a double bump DEM resolution . That is , using two or three DEMs at different resolutions. Tom Patarson explains this in his webpage...
Thank you for your comments
Ah ... a map with clouds I knew I couldn't be the only person with cloudy maps ! Brilliant!
I agree with Jean-Louis said about the terrain. When the map first downloaded I wondered what was going on with the landforms but as you explained the maths behind the map it makes much more sense ... the more I look at it the more I like it! It really shows off the plateau to the north of the Hymalayas and I love the way the detail in the twisted and folded mountain ranges shows up - a real stunner!
