My first landscape and attempt at snow.

As always comments and critiques very welcome.

P.S Added some detail to the main structure later on.

lol, I understand. I am rarely satisfied with my work when looking back on it, even if I like just submitted it, lol, I'm hypercritical of my own work though.

sign of someone who's probably going to be super successful in this industry if he keeps thinking like that. I hope I'm still like that in 10 years time :)

Oh wow, well I hope so, but my greatest ambitions are not in art. I've only recently started back into art. :D I do love it greatly though and thanks so much! I see you has having a lot of potential here my friend, already, extremely impressive gallery. :)

Hey there. I would personally not use the black borders + a square aspect ratio. Your other work is also a little on the square side. That feature currently is sort of not sure where to sit, it really wants to be on the third but the ratio is so tight it's almost middle. And that goes for the horizontal AND the vertical.

There's also no dilatation between land and sky or foreground, midground and background. Apart from a few buildings going off. The snow is largely white and so are the clouds but in reality they'd be a bit darker or at least have more variation.

The snow is pushing up the tower on all sides, it's extremely thick snow but a) doesn't show any directional bias in terms of piling up on one side, nor does it fall on any part of the tower. A few sprinkled here and there would help.

Just my two cents!

yeah totally agree with you and some very good feedback indeed.

Thanks for taking the time to post it. I'm still learning a lot about composition and studying things like snow, rain, sand, buildings so it's awesome when people like you post stuff like this.

Awesome!

cool, glad it helped :) I wrote an article on the issue of composition which might help a bit. It's the most recent one on my site if you wanted to check it out.

This is awesome. Are those little dots down there people? I love how you made the snow look all drifty....really good for a first attempt at snow methinks ^^

Thanks Etha, yeah I put those people (aka dots) in there at the very end just to give people an idea of how big those structures are.

The dots are supposed to be 3 people and their hover/flying vehicle or something. I probably should have given them a better shape or made them a little bigger lol.

The story behind this was that these pillars were some sort of antenna or research facilities that collect data and these guys might be engineers or something that have come out to repair or do something lol.

Thanks again for the fav.
