That's your first mattepainting you say?
For that it's damn fantastic.
The only thing I would correct, are the blurry spots. There are some blurry areas, beneath them are the trees too sharp, but otherwise... cool

hey valentinto be the first one is really impressive, I like the mood and the genral concept
I think aereal pespective need a little more blueish tone for the background, the hazy look it has is a little bit desaturated for a partial clear sky the castle concept is cool but I don see any shadows on the mountain. also I think the perspective is off
hope this helps you, you have talent , keep it up

Nicely done, especially for a first!

I do agree about the blurry spots and the under-saturated haze. Also, the transition into the castle/fortress from the rocks is slightly awkward. A little too smooth, I guess. Perhaps consider roughing up that interface between the cliff and the structure.

Keep up the good work.
Think you've discovered a great new technique for painting in Photoshop? Stop by the CGWiki article and tell the world.
