The LH side is too bright, and too empty as far as visual flow. You have a tapered...

Some very nice work.

But your poor lighting is ruining all your efforts.

The sky contrast is too desaturated, and too contrasty. The black clouds on the LH side drag the eye's attention.
The lamppost is distracting, and should have...

Well, I'll admit, painting such a strong light souce from off to the left, while showing a strong sunset from behind IS pretty magical...Oversaturated? Most definitely. Believable? No way.

Some really nice work!
The only glaring fault I see is the way the hallway narrows so drastically just past the door. Unless it's vanishing into infinity about 15 feet further down the hall, you...

You have a large swath of empty sky on top, but you've cut the bottom off very close to where the rocks start. There is no ground, no...

It's just too dark, and the moon dominates everything except the explosions.

Why not put the clouds behind the right side, and USE that refraction of the moonlight to better illuminate this scene?...
