I like the contrast of scale with the focus onto the character. The proximity of the scenery on the right leading out to the distance on the left. With the offset of those elements the eye is quite naturally led in that direction. It then creates an interesting effect with the character's precarious position, making the scene as dynamic as his stance, and I think adding grandeur.
As a magic the gathering player the first thing that jumped to mind was that guy is casting damnation. That or someone else cast it and he's going all planet of the apes. "You fools you blew it all up!"
