    your center shadow is too square, the shadows should be angled inwards as they're being cast by pyramids and not cubes.

    the darker something is in a shadow, the less detail there should be.

    your brick lines don't line up. if you look at real pyramids, the corners are one piece.

    you have a good start on the clouds, but the edges that are closer to the sun need to be highlighted.(look at a picture from google for reference.) if you change the entire colour gradient to separate it from the ground, you'll have a much higher contrast piece. right now it all blends together too easily. lighten things up so you can tell the difference between the ground and the sky.

    lower your horizon to match the perspective, you shouldn't be able to see it at all

    thats a pretty good paintover joeian, the lighting does look alot more natural this way.

    Give some shadows to your clouds and add more lighting to the bottom of them. make them look like they are in the picture with the pyramids. Your shadow is nearly as dark as you can make it. It loks fine the addition of the flareing of the sun made the shadows a lot darker. But if you feel you need to make them darker, try adding some purple.

    For all that I am, And for all that I have done.
    To hold on tight, Is all that I've known.
    To let it go, Is to tear it from my flesh.
    But to hold on, May mean my death.
    So I look to the stars, And All that I could be.
    And I will fly away, Bloody, Torn, And Free.
