Ok my first attempt at Matte painting. The buildings are a mix of Bryce and photoshop, whilst the other elements are from photos. I'd appreciate any constructive criticism as I'm looking to learn so I can progress.

Beautifully done. I suppose something to give a feel of scale MIGHT be a plus - though I'm not sure how easy that would be in this picture. For a first picture in this style, I'd say you pretty much nailed it.

Hey Joe, It looks great. The only thing that I could possibly nitpick is the litter of buildings. They seem to lack those tiny details that sell realism, and I'm not exactly sure if the lighting is coming from the back corner on them?

Well, I have no idea what matte painting is (but I will look it up), but this sure works for me, however you did it!!

Looks fantastic! Agree that the buildings look a little bit less detailed than the landscape but that's just a minor thing. Like the light and atmophere very much. All in all an excellent first matte painting!

I don't have a clue about matte painting. This seems to be another fantastic display of your talent. The only thing that bothers me about the image is the buildings seem to be off kilter a bit(the spires on the tops seem off vertical). .

Sweet render and scene, I like the idea of something to help identify the scale of things!

My only two real nitpicks are the one white cloud at the top-center of the image, it just seems a bit too bright and out of place, and the spherical buildings looking like they could topple over any second since they look to lean a bit.

Wow, this looks really good, I don't really have anything to add that hasn't already been covered. Great idea for a matte-painting, the landscape does seem very evocative and ripe for a story to run through it.

Great work!
Can't see anything that loos to be in need of improvement even after staring at it for a while and reading the other comments.

I'd say an excellent start at matte painting.

This is great. The only thing that is distracting are the clouds. They seem to be going in several directions. It could be an optical illusion.

I'd say you are off to a great start. It all looks good to me.

nice image-good colours and atmosphere;
i would concur with others, the detail seems less than your usual skill, and the buildings do look as if they may roll off.
