    This is pretty nice

    -The other buildings arround him look pretty far, yet they're as saturated and have as dark a value as the one your character is standing on. Considering one is right in front of us and the others are far away, you'd expect it to show.

    -That building on top left of the screen, which has a square roof; It's not doing a good job for your image. It looks to much like a box, expecially compared to your other buildings on which you've bother pushing the architecture a big more. It shows even more from the fact it more into the picture then the other buildings.

    -Since you're hinting the cars bellow, consider doing the same for lampost and electrical wires? It's be a nice way to add a bit more finishing details to your piece.

    -The cloud's shadow is very dark, compined with it's color being close to the roof's top... they blend toguether a bit to much.

    What I like:
    -COlours, perfect. really really nice
    -concept, idea
    -idea
    -love the white street

    What doesn't work:
    -sorry, but I think the pose isn't doing it for me. Try playing around a bit, maybe you'll find something
    -hands too small
    -really disturbed by that blurred shadow on the street that somehow leads into the skyscraper roof. Just bums me out!
    -lighten up the values on the skyscraper on the to left
    -the trousers look to shiny, not like clothes. The jacket is better in that regard

    Thanks for the kind words and notes guys. I had done some more work on this one before I saw that there had been any response. I'll come back to this one at some point. Right now I'm moving on to another piece.
