That's a great map, Torq. In some ways similar to your Greenstone Monastery but I can see improvements over that map, with this one. I especially like the edges of your forests - realistic blending into the background texture. I like. I also like those contour lines you create, as done in the October challenge too.
My only two criticisms (small though they are) one the blackline outline around the lakes kind of throw me off. Since everything else is such well done photo realistic terrain, the hard black line is too harsh. I would say try to create a "pillowed" edge where the shores look 3D ish, rather than an outline.
Although I love the forests in this map, the internal texture has some squarish shapes which looks less "treelike" in this respect - I'm expecting to see roundish trees not squarish.
Other than that, like I said, great map, Torq!
