Digital matte critique

Hello I have recently finished two matte paintings which are to be used in a portfolio. I am going to animate them a bit and would like some critique if possible. I realize in the industrial slumscape image that the shanty houses look as if they were shot with a wide angle lens. Thank you for your input.

great pieces christian , very photoreal work, in the first one I noticed what you meant with those houses, in the far industry island, " the big one" I think a little moe atmosphere-aerial perspective is needed,
in the second one integration is awesome I like it a lot, some more houses or some details to the left would help a lot to the composition ( for foreground )
great job, I will look forward to see these images with animation

Thank you james for your input. I appreciate it. I have had a few suggestions from different proffesionals and they are all very good. I will incorporate yours as well. Similar replies seem to be to add something to the foreground in the mountain composition, and that the industrial landscape seems a bit desaturated or "cold" for the environment.

Thank you for your reply though. I appreciate it!

Great matte paintings.You have achived very nice mood congrats My only critic is that the foreground rubbles in the first picture seem to be more saturated apart from the general mood.Great work
