Nice work. I'm just a little bit confused with the clouds near the building, but overall is really nice. good job :thumbsup:

yes nice image but a really confusing composition, I can't really tell what's clouds or snow. It feels like we're looking down but there's sky in the top-left corner...:curious:

realy nice composition !

I was going to comment once i could fully D/L the large version, but i havn't been able to so in the three days (I get about a 3rd of the image, with anyones image actually)..

TOP composition, even from the small version there is a huge sense of perspective and scale..It really is my favourite!..

Good on ya mark

Hi I really like this image:thumbsup: its has a great feeling of scale to it! Could you let us know a little more about how you created the clouds in this scene, Its hard to tell weather the image is mainly matte painting or 3d would be great to see some wires.

Very nice! Great marks for you m8!

Great scene. The detail and comp are very impressive. It does get a little confusing, but it works well. Confusion is not bad quality in this case.

Very nice!
