This is much better indeed. You can keep this foam, but add some new around the rocks.

Thank you all!

That's what I planned and what I did.

Here's an iteration. Not sure if I'll go on with this one, maybe too populated with cliffs... Still thinking... But anyway the surfacing, or parts of it, will be ported to another project; I like it too much.

At the moment I'm working on removing the strata from the "ceiling" of the tidal zone.

After that do some tests with a foreground patch of rocks so the camera has some solid ground to stand on.

Oh, almost forgot: I'm doing some tests with negative displacements.

You have to work on some nice clouds too!

What are you saying?! These not nice clouds?!  ;)
I'm thinking of something dramatic like in one of the early sketches, the "Stormy" one. Some nice rays hitting spots that are worth it, shadows covering the not so great spots...  ;D

The long silence here didn't mean I was doing nothing. I focused on the atmosphere and lighting at first but got strange results I couldn't explain. Not very happy with the light in this one either but need some more time to experiment. What I do like in this one is the vegetation and to a lesser degree the tidal zone. Now, with higher detail and at a larger size I see a couple of things that can be improved there.

What I don't understand is the appearance of those black spots in the water... Does anyone know a possible explanation?

I very like the last one! Nice, big and impressive!
Sorry I don't know for the black spot in water.

Thank you!

Next step: The foreground. A couple of Dune's grasses and a grass from lightning are a good base for possibly more vegetation like herbs or a small shrub to hide the slightly awkward displacement on the left.

And those black spots keep appearing...

Wow, looks great!!
One minor crit: to me the foam pattern looks a bit too large. I think the cliffs are quite far away.

Agree with this, and I see no awkward displacement anywhere in this image....and I'm seeing the black artifacts in the water are still there. I have no solution but I'm sure someone does.

Brilliant ideas here.
Those formations are great.
The curiosity I have about how you achieved that is a brain wobbler.
