Feels very calm and hopeful!

Impressive landscape, looks like you have had a lot of experience with oil painting.

I very much like the way you used your blues, very nice cool feeling. However it does seem a little overpowering, there is so much blue here that it doesn't seem to end. What I mean by that is that the main focus, the ship, appears to blend in quite a bit. What may help improve on that, use bright colors that contrast the rest of the image. You used very little, to no red in this, had you added say an entry burn on the front end of the ship, it would have popped. My eye would have been drawn directly to it in a far more dramatic light. I'm not saying that your image as it is is anything other than outstanding, your style is quite magnificent. Your image has personality and I love that.

hey thank you for the great critic. everytime im very pleased by such helpful stuff. the mainfocus was actually the river and not the spaceship, that's why i tried to make it blend in with the background, i think when i would add more saturation to the spaceship it would pop out and totally kill the focal point.

Absolutly stunning.

Very nice, the neutral and cool colors are very calming. I feel like this looks a bit like Halo.
