Life is a long lesson in humility.
I like whats going on with the area around the rocks and the reflection in the water.
I like this otherwise, but the contrast on the cliffs at the right side of the picture makes them stand out strangely. They should probably be less sharp to fit the rest. It makes no sense that the stone closest to the viewer is smudgier than the cliffs, which are further away.
But that's the only disturbing thing I can spot! The size contrast of the shack and the rugged mountains is marvellous. I really like the feeling of this. The colours are cool, too.
Good job, I say.

i really like it! can you tell me, which technique u used. thx greeez
Thanks for all the replies
Oaki- I was exploring the brush tool in photoshop and learned a lot from doing this piece, I've realized though I need to do more research next time I tackle this subject matter. Although there are some things I'd change, I've decided to leave it be.
Really nice work, love the lighting on the rocks. The cool top surfaces really work well against the warm tones of the rocks, creates a very interesting palette. A few notes:
1) Compositionally the image feels a little too close to split in half for me. I really feel like I'm looking at a right half and a left half (and the right half is more successful.) Also I think you're creating a bit of a disturbingly even rhythm with the almost equal area of the two inlets, the peninsula between them with the house on it & the rocky cliffs behind. Making the fgd inlet a little "taller" than the one behind would also help to enhance your perspective convergence. I also think that with the fgd grass established for scale, the hut looks too small for how deep it is in the image.
2) Texturally the way the clouds are handled feels a little too similar to the slopes, which I think is taking away from the depth and three-dimensionality you've handled so well in the rocks.
I get that it's an exercise and you're moving on, just wanted to add a little analysis that could be helpful for the next one.

Thank you so much man, I really appreciate the critical feedback. I love the work on your website and am glad you took the time to look and respond. As an aspiring concept designer I think you've given me a lot to work with. Any advice you could offer to a guy looking to get in the biz?
