Both of your images look really great, like the surface of asteroids--from the
photos that have been returned from spacecraft that have actually made landings.
Your result looks like an accumulation of loosely-held debris that has been
pulverized by micro-meteoroids over eons of time. Nice!

I still have a soft spot for those quaint old sci-fi movie depictions of
sharp-edged craggy mountains and craters on outer-space planets...but alas, that
appearance has been proven false.
