This is a ridiculously awesome scene. I remember staring at it for quite some time when you first uploaded it. So much eye candy to look at. The atmosphere has this trippy green tone to it... making the view really unique and enjoyable.

My favorite parts have to be the mushrooms and the water. Gorgeously done with very precise detail and crisp lighting, the shadow from the largest mushroom really sets this piece together for me, as well as the background terrain. The clouds have an eeire but beautiful green mist to their atmosphere. The color would normally be light grey or blue.. but there are exceptions for amazing fairytale scenes like this. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" />

I'm finding it hard to write any constructive critisizm, perhaps the top of the mountains in the background have a bit too much blur on the top (directly under the right side of the large mushroom, to the right a bit), seems they would look better if those spots were sharper. This is very minor though, I just didnt want to write a whole critique without giving at least some advice, and of course this is just my eye's opinion <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" /> There is enough awesome in this gem to make everything worth looking at. I admire your creativity and originality man, this is an insanely golden piece that has been added to your collection.
