    Nice image. U sure you're a noob ? Two crits:

    1. The glimpse of the forest on the right adds depth, but creates confusion in terms of the piece's center of interest.

    2. The light at the end of the tunnel is sort of washed out and overpowering.

    Tunnel? Colin? Cave? What exactly are we looking at?

    the pic looks good - nice rendering on the "mossy cave of love". Agree with Jonathan S about the forest, either bring it into view more or cut it, as it's just a wee bit confusing visually. Also, although those green lines work well for the sides of the cave, it doesn't read very well on the ground to the right (looks like weird water or rolling grass or something) - perhaps have normal 'foresty' ground that leads into more of the greenie ground, or steps down or something. A sense of scale with some figures might be interesting too.

    Thanks, dudes!

    About the glimpse of the forest.. I wanted to break up the center of interest. If I would cut that, then the image would look kind of booring to me with just a tunnel straight ahead... But that's my personal taste maybe.

    Plasma: I actually wanted it to be some kind of natural organic tunnel of very thick green smoke. Does it look like smoke? I really can't tell. hehe!

    Thanks again for the replys!

    The wisps of white come across as smoky, but most of your green tunnel looks like it's built of mostly solid objects.
