An encounter map of a Sandy Ravine I made in Photoshop CS6 playing around with height maps.
I've attached a 2000x2000 version as well as a 4096x4096 version in case someone wants to crop it to use just a portion.
I used the excellent height map tutorial by Pasis to do this as well as his sample height maps
I think it came out looking pretty sweet. I can't thank Pasis enough for the tutorial!
Wow, the height map looks awesome!
Nice topography! And thank you for the link, I will definitely see what I can do with this.
Good work, thanks for this nice map !

i like the lighter one quite a bit more, i love the amount of detail in such a small area
Can i suggest try playing with different blending modes in layers. you could get some nice contrasts. For you made some nice work but looks like a spray can of colour. Maybe a noise layers with some other colour blended. over the rocks. ( only suggested as you said newbie to PS ) plus some masks over the vegetations. Masks and layers are you friends.
Thanks for the feedback =)
@Londonsmee I agree could do more on the coloration side of things. I'm very much still learning Photoshop at the moment, getting better all the time but still a relative newb! Thanks for the suggestions I will try them
