Yes I thought this was a miniature, because of the DOF... it has an almost 'tilt-shift' feel...
What is the aperture and f stop in the Tg camera, sometimes I have had to use unrealistically large apertures just to get an effect that matches the scale of the object etc in the scene, artistically, I love this piece because of the mystery, the apparent small size made me even more curious!

I guess, it's mainly the DOF that makes it look like a miniature.

A bit off meaning that it looks like a haphazardly thrown in object.

Nice rays. The memorial is a bit off, I'd say. Wider camera angle to see more ground, some plots of woods and shrub, and a lonely road would be nice.

Indeed, It pays off sometimes to review all the downloads and test em out. I dl everything offered as 'educational' and this was apparently a solution to someone else's problem but it sure is a fast rendering example of GodRays. It wasn't in File Share as I'd thought but in a thread requesting help and JimB was the helper...
Sorta thinking that with that sky if I dropped the Atlantic ocean .tgc in the boiling waves would suit that insane sky. By a bit off do you mean not quite 'grounded'?...I agree. A road in that case down to a landing might also be nice. Will spend some time on this today. Thanks for the comments.

I guess this is an example of the old saying, "everything is relative".
By preview measurements most of these stones measure 2.5 to 3 Terragen meters wide and yes the branch could easily be a full dead tree at 8 Terragen meters from base (hidden) to tip.
These big items most likely are what throw off the eye/brain evaluation as well as the camera angle and DOF which may indeed give the render some (wasn't intended) tilt shift "looking at toy models" effect.

Offsets, scaling and tallness inputs (PFs) are used which alter the base fake stones, stone colors are from merged PFs.

Oh and that violin isn't quite pristine, there are some visible spots from a dirt layer, I hope it's not a Stradivarius.

Unfortunate? I thought I was up there with comedy central! Lets never get too old for South Park level humor!  ;D

@martin
Thanks for getting back. I'll take a look at the newer option, Im just used to using your drop-in solution. But just to make sure that we understand one another... The thing that looked complex to me was to make the crack part wider by meters, so that there was much less surface than gap...
Ill have to use the Voronoi just to see what I can do with it.

What does "bin them" mean?

Easy:

          "smooth step"(Voronoi, low, high)*Voronoi

This gives a flat (zero) bottom from values from 0 to low.
A soft ramp between values from low to high
Unchanged above high.
