I really love composition and perspective.
Well done!

I think that you have done a really good job of conveying a murky, underwater setting. I think the low level perspective was a good choice and the colours used really bring the piece together and set the tone and feel to the piece. Because of the extreme perspective on the pillar on the right, or more its base, I'm not sure that the top portion of the pillar looks as if it is sitting atop the base, or that the foreshortening as it rises up matches.

I think that it could pinch a little more at the top so the angles of the lines are a little more diagonal to give it a little more perspective. The pillars in the back are more convincing. Hope this helps, solid effort none the less.

Everything's a tad too vague here. I can barely make out the shape of the boy (and his head looks rather big at the moment because it's difficult to discern depth from the image). I do like the rendering and texture you got with the ruins and statue of Medusa's head. You did a good job with the fine grain of the stone used. Also, it looks like you have two layers of water (one above the boy, and one at the bottom that the head is lying on). It's a tad confusing for the eye. Nice composition though. Keep it up. Nice job.

Thank you all for taking the time to give me some feedback, I think I'll do some work on the pillar on the right, there's something a bit funky about it for sure. I might also add some more detail to the diver, but I did want to keep it a little vague and focus on atmosphere/composition etc and not go crazy on the details. Thanks again
