thats nice, i love the sense of relief from ranking light all over the cityscape,
and clear separation to warm and cool colors!

very nicce work, I'm with Zoki on his comments. Colors are very nice, any story behind the idea? a huge reactor/oil refinery explosion etc.... Forest fire lost control and swept the city... Or maybe a fire like in Chicago sometime ago that destroyed a lot of the city... Eitherway it looks good. I also like the tilted camera angle too, gives it a sense of movement like your in a resume helicopter or something.

Hi! Nice picture, beautiful details. I see only one imperfection - the colour of explosions is similar to the colour of the sky. It will better, if you draw the sky more blue or green.

Hi, beautiful work, though I am inclined to agree with Tigrenka. the sky is competing too much with the embers. I wouldn't change the colour scheme, but i would suggest using an adjustment layer to desaturate and bring down the contrast in sky to reestablish that atmospheric perspective. If you do it with a nice gradient it'll fade off nicely.

keep up the great work
