Concept of an old steam punk city, full of activities, sadness, pollution and heavy saturated atmosphere, but the sunlight can pierce this steam to bring something warm and sweet!

SteamCity has great flow and composition. The arrangement of the buildings and urban spires enable me to imagine that I'm actually there. And I would feel murky and gritty. The sky juts through the smoke and steam in a refreshing way (which makes the piece have a warmth it otherwise wouldn't have).
The environment obscures light and distance appropriately. The buildings in the background are hazed over and I get a good feel of distance because of this as well.
The foreground could use a bit more attention, as it falls a bit flat and it seems as though the perspective is a bit off (see the bridge and the water beneath as an example).
I docked this piece for originality a bit but I understand that it's an environmental concept and I've probably seen a million of these types of drawings for inspiration. And pure originality probably isn't the goal here anyway. Your idea translated well and overall I think this is good work.
