I'm watching you for a while now and i must say that you are AMAZING artist. You ideas are great so as color palete and lighting.
But there is one thing what bothers me on a lot of your deviations and that is number of details (speciali pure white highlights) which look like noise. Like on other images, it confuse your eyes. You and other artist will probably like the number of details but mostly people will focus on one thing - airplaine.
Anyway.. i inported image in PS (no offense) and reduce noise (strenght:10, details:2). Result was much, much better for me - it don't kills eyes. Just try it one time.
Anyway.. that was just my opinion. Don't take it harsh
