it will be hard to explain you from part to part so i'll find a link for you! but in a few words...
matte painting is a technique used in movies to make some still backgrounds (even animated some times) using some painting, and 3d objects,and composition of photos...the goal of all this is to give the illusion that the scene in front of you is real!

well here is the link to the craig mullins website, an awesome matte painter!
there is an introduction to what matte is and more of that there are good examples in his matte gallery

Why so excited? All he did was increase the contrast and airbrush in a waterfall.
I wrote a sci-fi novel!!

Looks good !

About the plants in the foreground by the water. They look a little soft around the edge. Try not to feather the matte so much
The question to any answer is why.
