interesting concept and dramatical mood, I like this, it looks lord of the rings style, I see some issues on the foreground,, it looks too perfect too digital, I can see the 3D there and the texture is kind of wrong in its porojection, the right cloud loks too painted as well, other than that it is a nice piece.

Yeh agree with everthing Jaime said.

The left forground looks interesting. Might be good to add something that give a sense of scale maybe. Also needs a stronger focal point perhaps, something to lead the eye towards, a castle or some structure. The planet could do with been more in the frame. It also looks like you might have used a procedural noise for the bump map, procedurals never look great, try using a texture based bump. Also using some kind of ambient occlusion / global illuminaton pass can help create realistic shadows. Overall looking good :thumbsup:

Great image

I think thereís any issue with the distance from the crater "I think thatís what it is" and the mountains. As they only seem to be a few hundred meters away from each other, which would make the mountains look a lot bigger,try using some fog/mist for more depth.

Plus show some clouds around the mountains etc and snowcaps.
