    Very effective thumbnail and colors, however, from my limited experience I would feel it requires more contrast, especially in the middle. I think theres a little too much atmosphere and it kind of flattens the whole image.

    Darken the foreground abit (especially the wall on the right), see how that looks afterwards.

    Is the rooftop in the background or the characters your focus?

    If the characters are just there for scale, then make them less important and give some love to the buildings. There is nothing going on in the center of the image, so I would suggest cropping it so that the interesting silhouette of the temple is further down.

    Just want to open this very common idea for composition and depth. I know it's a very common way of showing a scene, but well... it's effective.

    Hey tjmsaint,
    Great piece, it is great to see the evolution. I think that your first pass would have ended up being great too if you chose to stick with it, but you've ended up in a great place too. I love the color and the lighting and the composition. I noticed that you had these great paths of light leading to the central figure, he is currently you focal point IMO. I would give him a more interesting silhouette so the viewer has more of a pay off.

    I think the characters on the foreground improved quite a bit overall, I prefer some earlier version of what s in the background though. The newest one doesn't feel as 'wide' if you see what I mean.

    This to me is the best composition from this thread so far. You changed it up a bit in the update.

    I totally agree with you Pavel. I was trying to get rid of a tangent with the road and the middle guy's head. I realize now I made him way to big and took away the depth of the figures. I also will look into trying to widen the picture again( Zelrik)... Ahh it always feels like Im taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back if you know what I mean

    Thanks J cart. I am going to scale him down slightly and put some rock moving him down a little and ill work on getting him a some more interest.

    Changed the composition one last time hopefully. Now going to push it farther.
