Thumbs down

Great work! Realy beautiful. Have you done the castle and other elements yourself or are they taken from pictures?

Very nice Dan. I particularly like the cottages and the pier.

I do think there should be some small amount of snow showing on the castle as there is some on the ground that is not in the shadows of the mountains.

Looking good; but I think the perspective/vanishing points of the castle (evident on the near turret, especially)are a little steep...

That is to say, the castle should be positioned a little higher on the BG to be 'correctly set'

The sky scatter-effect looks convincing, but your snow-capping edit of the far mountain top looks a little 'wooly', or blurred.

The additive elements of the foreground are excellent, tho'
