    Its hard to see its floating. If you fly an airplane you can look down on the ground and see that the plane is creating a pretty big shadow far down there. By introducing a shadow on the ground you might get a better feeling of it floating in the air. And these things dont float by itself, normaly there would be a balloon, propeller or similar to keep it up in the air. I think you have a good depth in the image, but the river stops at the bottom of the floating building, this create a bit of a clash.

    Thx. Yea there is a shadow there but i guess it doesn't come across well as a shadow, I'll work on that.

    Nice piece! I like the suggestion of detail and I couldn't advise you any more than Gundersen, I'd like to see an improved version

    I really like this.

    You might consider rerouting the river (or adjusting the bottom of the fortress) to get rid of that tangent.

    I tihnk the problem with the floating lookng off is because the angle or lines created by the bottom part of the fortress are in tangent with the perspective of the peice.

    Alsmost like an optical illusion, i got the feeling that it was in fact an obelisk sat on the ground, only further away than you intend. Maybe make the shape on the bottom contrast more, increase the angle of the spike maybe?
