So I am following a tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQCS7Hk_G6Y&ab_channel=WiresoulStudio (2017)

and my result looks like: enter image description here

Whereas, in the video I am following, the uploader's image looks like :

enter image description here

I am using the same image for following this tutorial. This video was uploaded in 2017 and since then, Blender may have changed quite a bit and some options were different but I tried my best to select the closest.

Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong?

Blender 2.8 and higher requires the Displacement node to work with the Displacement of the Material Output node. In Blender 2.79 you can plug the color directly into the Displacement slot as shown in the video. This no longer works in the later versions of Blender.

shader node setup

The Displacement node has a Scale value which does the job of the Math node as shown in the video. Set it to a value of 1.320 to get a similar result as in the video. The Midlevel value needs to be set to 0.000. It defines the "ground level" of the displaced image.
