    You've got some nice stuff going on here, but I take issue with some rendering and composition-related issues.

    I love the texture and color variation in the foregrond, but I think the application of texture was a little pre-emptive, especially on the left wall of rock. I think the left wall should be more obviously made of individual fragments of rock, instead of a smooth, eroded wall.

    Compositionally, I'd also move that left rock wall to our right a bit. It comes a bit close to looking like it's a tangent to the picture plane. I can't explain it in art terms, but having stuff that close to an edge makes me uncomfortable.

    As for the mountains you asked about, there's a little planar conflict because they're so sharp. Also, they look a bit inconsistent with that of the foreground. I realize you're going for a sharp, uneroded look, but I think it's making them stick out too much. Try softening the edges ever-so-slightly, or putting a subtle low-hanging cloud in front of them.

    You've gone in with the textures way too long before setting up the planes and forms. Do what you did with the background mountains in the foreground, paint what you can with ordinary brushes. Then experiment with texture. Never let it overpower the piece, because it shows.

    I like the composition quite a bit, and the colors work quite nicely.
