I like the idea a lot and the camera angle makesit more impressive, but here are some points you can think about

first the left edge of the mountain is too sharp , try to break it with some fooliage , blur or more detail in rocks
also that part of the foreground mountain need more integration with the atmosphere , play with aereal perspective and add more haze to that left part with this , the sense of depth and scale will be much better
that hit glow in tha main entrance should project larger and stronger lights and shadows over the architecture
hope this helps

builiding design is great too! james made the professional comments...and the colour scheme gives it a lovely mood..

i'm not sure about that white light coming out of the the door. i guess it bothers me as a still image for example if there was an animation zoomming in and expained what it was..

u could perhaps have it as volumic light coming out, from this angle u could propably see the beams.

prob talking nonsence here, keep up the good work. :thumbsup:
