    I think it's an awesome base to work with.

    A lot of cloudiness going on there, but that's good if you want to simulate orbital photography.

    Add some colour and some labels and you have some fine planetary mapping on your hands.

    Nice stuff.

    I like the third one particularly.

    Always curious about the methods people find.

    I can see sort of an alien face in the first one

    Very nice. That's inspiring me for a few ideas now

    Some really neat and interesting terrain features there.

    Do you intend to color it, or will it remain a grayscale image?
