Congratulations on your honourable mention, Simon. Well done.
Can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all of the things?

Great image , congrats man!

First congratulations !
It's really an impressive Textured painting I admire how you put the textures on the stones very lovely !

My critics:
The Front is painted very lovely and detailed as i said, but the background looks unfinished, it misses atmosphere.
The maze gets to flat. Maybe you can work a bit on this. I doesnt't have to be more detailed...

The sky/clouds are very very boring. Far too less..
Use cloud-textures or maybe just work a bit more on the clouds details, make it a bit more dramatic, it will be very rewarding !

Look at some matte paintings of great artists here how they solved depth problems ( maybe by using haze, fog, light, blur and other atmospheric effects...)
Maybe it misses a atmospherical light that appears also in the front.
You could try: Fog is coming out of the maze (bg) --> makes it a bit more mysteriouse and gives a sense of temperature.

Work slightly more on the rock on the right it lives too much from the textures.

good luck great work so far !!

Yep, one thing I forgot: you can try adding a bit of noise(grain) to the sky ( flat areas to ad realism )

Good luck buddy =)
