Nice start. You are doing well with atmospheric perspective (the loss of contrast in the distance and higher color saturation in the foreground.)

A crit - one thing that is standing out to me is that the nice highlight detail you put on the terrain ridges on the left are ont really followed through with related shadowing. Try to imagine your light source's position and luminance and start with the shadows. Don't think about line at all, just paint the dark parts. Remember that the shadows will be a dim, complimentary version of the color of the object that is casting the shadow as well as the color of the light source.

Then, once you have the shadows in place, it will be obvious where to drop the highlights.

Hope this helps a bit,
