Nice illustration.

About the imposing wall:
The dark wall looks out of place (from my perspective) because it enhances the fact that the entire building structure is compositionally out of place, being too far to the right. I think interrupting the continuity of the archway, by cropping it off on the right, was a compositional mistake. Continuing the arch would coral the eye comfortably inside the image frame while at the same time it would create a secondary frame around and enhance the goal of the image—the rocket in the bg. Pulling the architecture to the left a little would allow the curvilinear vertical lines on the right to renforce the buildings monumental perspective. I think the dark muted wall is a good element, strengthening the rich color and contrasts of the foreground subjects by not distracting away from them. To fix the wall as is, I would simply add another red streamer across it, diagonally pointing toward the rocket.

I would also add a little more drama to the illumination of the rocket—brighter sun at the top terminated by a soft cloud shadow running diagonally across the bottom.

Thank you CGSociety for putting me in your choice gallery! I don't know how much I deserve it but it's something I've always hoped for, so you made a humble artist's dream come true! Thank you!!!

leigh, Lunatique, and Quadart are absolutely right about the wall, I wish I had given it more thought/attention, it's one of those big things that escaped me for some reason, perhaps because I was so caught up in thinking about the crowd. I want to do another crowd scene, maybe fewer people, and pay more attention to the composition of the environment.

Thanks to all three of you for the focused, useful, and necessary critique, it is tremendously appreciated

And thank you to everyone else for liking this piece so much! It means a lot to me! SoloyuOminageeshi, that song is AWESOME.

Beautiful atmosphere and great composition, I really like the people hanging off the bridge on the top right, sends us right back to the focus of the picture but yet it serves as a great little distraction.
