I dunno if I'm just a weirdo, but when I blur my vision they look fine, but as soon as my eyes return back to normal focus they seem too detailed. Dumb down the amount of things going on, don't texture quite as much, and they should be great!

There's my two cents, sorry if it isn't terribly helpful...

I can't tell what's going on ??? It looks like a bunch of rectangles mishmoshed together. I like the new texture you have on the cliffs, but it would be better if the platform surfaces were the brightest part (your light source is from the top, so why are the cliff faces so brightly lit?) and the little green platforms were used much more sparingly. Actually I think that's what's making the cliffs look so bright ...

Also man, the cliffs are way too square/rectangley. Make them rounded or diagonal like they did in SoM. It gives it a much more natural feel. Same on the bottom corners of the cliffs and the vertical/horizontal sides. Nature is not perfectly square.

That's a lot more readable from where I'm sitting.

That tree is nice except for one thing.  It looks like stairs.  Take the middle clump of leaves and bring it to the front and make it 2-3 times as big so that it overlaps all of the clumps that it touches, especially the clump above it and the two clumps below it.  That should make it look round instead of like stairs.
