Great stitching together so far, there's certainly potential with this one I'm looking forward to seeing this progress.

Hi !
It's a difficult view angle you have chosen.
I feel like the temple of the foreground is too present. Maybe you have to push it a little bite more on the right side. Like this it will be possible to open more the view on the back ground (mountain and temples).
A mountain wiew like yours is a good interpretation of the topic (with temples, waterfalls, jungle everywhere...)
maybe you have to choose others pictures to make your work easier to realize.
An other thing : the temples are too different.

you have a idea with potential !
have fun !

Hey, Rievilo thanks for the advice, I know the temple of the foreground is too present because, what i am creating is that the half of the temples is in jungle and other half is outside of the jungle.

new update.

Hi,

i want to give feedback on this piece, but its a hard one. Actually you made it hard on yourself by using so much photo references. I think the term " less is more " would fit in this picture.

Personally i think there is too much in this picture that has to be changed. You could remove some elements and play a bit with shadow & light. There are alot of temples in this piece as well. The focal point is missing because of all the different objects. You should try to lead the eye to a point in the picture.

I hope you can do something with this critism, otherwhise i hope you have enough time to work on it and you have fun making it...

Hi,

The second temple on the left is too gray. You should add more red to the building. The light in front of the wall should not be there, because the wall would block the light from the right. There is too much colour in the picture at the moment. Its nice looking, but it should be a bit more desaturated. You added some elements and added them in the stones in the forground. You should blend them a bit more. Now you can see that its faded and pasted on there.

Hope this helps a bit

Hi,

Your making progress.. What you could do is make the second temple a little bit smaller. This will make the environmental space bigger. You should also blur that same temple a little bit so it looks as soft as the ground it is standing on. You should make the leafs in front of the picture darker and a little bit smaller. Remove the leaf in the middle. You shouldn't block the sight of the viewer. The eye should be moving backwards. Another thing that you could do is try to make the picture a little bit wider. More towards the 16:9 aspect ratio. Gives it a more cinematic look. Thank you that you use the support. I know its hard to get critism on your personal work....
