Environment concept for my story. This is a street in San Francisco, 100 years after the war that killed almost all of humanity.

Most images of the apocalypse are always barren wastelands, I prefer the idea that nature would just take back the land and become balanced again over time.

you can see the before/after image in my scrapbook

Really nice. The carpet of grass blanketing the street and shooting up through the cracked pavement is a nice touch. I agree with you that too many apocalyptic scenarios involve barren wastelands. I prefer the overgrown ruin look myself, it seems more practical that nature would just reclaim the world. It also has a bit of poetic justice, that nature wins over man in the end when man struggled so hard to win out over nature.

This is so amazing... I love how you got the street intersection as well as the texture of the forage. I especially like the contrast of the trees near the middle of the picture, it just looks so sharp.
Its like I could just walk here :D
