As Balin went to look in Kheled-zâram (Mirrormere) located beneath the East-gate of Khazad-dûm, an orc archer fatally shot him.

Gorgeous. I personally can't point Out any flaws. I love your rocks and the perspective of the enemy off the water's reflection. Great attention to details and mastery of skill. A pleasure to see.

Balin went to Moria, but was not killed there. He was killed by an orc archer in the Dimrill Dale and his tomb lies in Moria where Gimli found him.

Well done, but I doubt that orc lived long enough to smile about it
