Very nice!

A few comments:

1- The wall you added has a perspective at odds with the building's perspective. (looking up with low horizon, instead of the direct horizontal view with high horizon that the wall has.

2- I think you overdid the cloning of the star cluster on the sky, makes it look like a pattern.

3- The lamps on the building's wall on the bottom right look more like a cut picture of a three lantern post, specially because of the perspective they have. How about adding the same lights you placed on the wall with the odd perspective here instead?

4- The silhouette hills look great! Sometime a slight glow effect (with the same sky colors) helps out to bring them out more without taking away from realism (you can see it happen on actual photographs, there must be a reason related to atmosphere for it, but I don't know what it is )

I like the new format you gave the image

Great work!
The hills are cool, and I agree with Otas's last comment - maybe add a light glow to them?
the wall extension is cool, but I think the lamps should cast more light on the wall behind them.
I love the smoke, it looks great!
The sky is cool, great color, but maybe the right side is a bit too dark?

agree with suirebit, the lamp post do have a little bit of wierd glow around it. You did create a very cool image extension though... looking forward to the final image.

lilguy: Hi, HAHA! I think I might sit this one out. It's very tempting and honestlly I would want to join, but I just got hired a few days back as a senior mattepainter and work has been hell!

You guys go ahead and enjoy! I'll just sit at the sidelines and enjoy looking at your works! It's quite inspiring actually!
