Default 1st ever matte painting - 08-19-2012, 02:39 AM

This is my first attempt at matte painting. I am a photographer by trade, and have been learning After Effect recently. While learning this, the door to matte painting was opened to me.
As this is my first, feedback would be appreciated. I am concerned that it lack any real subject (but is that necessary for a movie back-plate?). I am also finding it hard to know when to stop!? I really dont want to over work the image. I would be interested to hear anyone elses techniques on this.

Here is a selection of some of the photos used.
