This is a sweet composition.
When the base of the painting is right, you can easily get away from small flaws.

Looking forward to more wonders like this.

Thanks for the inside info and the source pics.

I disagree on stuff like the lighting and saturation, I think they all work fine. The only thing technically wrong I can see is the perspective of the source images.

The camera angle viewing the waterfalls is slightly DOWNWARDS, whereas the angles on all the buildings are slightly UPWARDS as they are taken from ground level.

It's most noticible on the buildings on the Right, in the Middle Distance, and even then it took me a while to spot what the problem was.

Basically excellent stuff. Thanks again.

Hello Jamesvfx,

That is a truly amazing shot! It would be fun to see it moving in a motion picture! I really want to see more of your work on this site!

I would have to agree about the perspective of building set in the right middle ground.

This does show the caution and discernment needed when using photographs in one's work.

The buildings on the left work well because they appear to be above the horizon line and the original view is looking up at the buildings. The right building and mound are below the horizon line. One solution is to run vanishing points out to the horizon and repaint the building. The other solution would be to raise the buildings to height where its perspictive works.

Do note, however, that raising the building (at its present size) in the painting would imply that it is further in the distance and would probably need more aerial perspective.

I hope this will help.

Best wishes!

David

check out the fixed 1600 pixels image , changing some stuff that comments made me realize thanks to you guys,

I painted some perspective over some buildings to better match the scene I added a little more painted details over the front tower and I put a haze to the top of the image to make it look moody ,I painted some highlits to the buildins and if you see the back buildings have now some color over them , also I added a little film grain to it , what do you think?
