Hello, here is one of my first matte painting. I made it to try some tips. Thank's for your comments.
(the shuttle and the water has been initialy rendered in Carrara + post process in Photoshop).

Everything looks cut out here so you really need to give this scene some atmosphere.

Thank's, you're right. I'll try to do it :-)

very nice for the first one!
my first one doesn't not come even close to that =P
yes atmosphere will help a bunch, especially the background trees, they are in same intensity and contrast as the other things, that lose the sense of depth

also, since the water has some transparency, it might be nice if the shuttle in water show through just a little bit, and some high light on the water around the shuttle would be nice too.

overall really great stuff here!
