i REALLY love the idea. something like that would look amazing. however, there are a few lighting/color problems. the grass is too bright green, and the castle should be elaborated on. You might want to make the actual castle a bit smaller, but adding a whole castle in it's place. At the moment, it looks like a watchtower :).
For the last update, I'd suggest removing what you added. it has some perspective and color/value issues. but keep going with the idea, it's great!

Yea i think that annis is right, the whole image seems a bit bright at the moment. I also agree about removing what you added, although i would keep the castle silhouette in the background, i think that bit looks good.
I would suggest really just darkening the image and adding more contrast to the foreground.
Having said that, i really like the concept, and its looking great so far. Only really minor things to change i think.
Good work!

Hi Noel B,
Nice job. If you'd like to take it a little further, i'd try pushing the right cliff w/ castle back in space. Right now both of the cliffs are on the same level ( not to interesting since it keeps the viewer at this level and doesn't invite them into the rest of the painting. If you push back the right cliff, it will allow the viewer to move around this enviornment that you've created. :wink:
