i like it its a nice start
i am learaning now also
For your piece i think composition should be more developed i think the three towers are too equal in height, distance fog aerial perspective would also help to give sense of depth.
I would also put some very near element in front
hope this helps

I think were all fans of Dylan... Sorry I'm not an expert, but I am learning too. Zoki is right about the perspective on the towers. I also noticed the front one and the tip of the tower on the right side are from the same, change it up a bit to give it some contrast. I also noticed the buildings are all on the right side of the rocks/mountains. Also add some light to the tip of the right buildings to show sunlight coming over the mountain top. Cloud work seems good, and I like that front rock, overall a good start, keep it up :)

Hi Sankara,

As promised, I am responding to your piece.
First of all, study your plate to understand light direction. That light house thingy is a good indicator. All of your buildings should be side lit like that. Make sure your photos are of a constistent light direction, right now they are all over the place. Also, look at perspective on your buildings. Take the time to draw your vanishing points so that you know it is correct. I would also play with a more dynamic composition. It is very symmetrical and centered. Try adding a foreground element and maybe push one of the side hills and buildings further away from using scale and atmosphere.
I hope this helps, keep it up!
