Forrest Scene

Hi all
I have an account here for a long time, but finally, I can submit an image.
I wanted to test, how far I can get with moss and after all, there was this scenery growing. The goal is to get as much realism as possible.

It's done in C4D, Surfacespread and Vray, Post in AE.
What do you think? Where are the weak spots, that make it not realistic? Where to tweak to go further?

This is really cool, the only thing i see is to much of the same green. Maybe make the ferns a more blue green (slightly more). More contrast, other then that really great image.

I like that a lot, the mossy stuff is looking really nice. I second the comment about the "same greens".

Also in my eyes, it´s probably to uniform bright. I mean, of course you will find spots like that, but I think this could make the scene more interesting, when some parts probably vanish in the dark parts.
You could lead the viewers eyes by having sme brighter areas, and some darker ones.

I worked on it again and finished it, thanks for the comments. There's a much more contrasty variation now and a different finish.
Image is here

Do you plan on working on it anymore?

You've got some weird scale things going on in your scene. The rocks, the trees, and your ferns all seem off. The trees and ferns look really small compared to the size of the moss. I would also guess that the moss would be growing on the rocks.
