This painting is amazing.  Any chance inspiration was taken from John Martins Joshua Commanding the Sun to Stand Still? It bears a striking resemblance in composition. Just curious because I had to write a paper analyzing an old artist from the 1800's (I chose John Martin) then compare one of his works to a contemporary artwork.

The space between the mountains and the cloud gives it depth and scale that makes all the difference.

For me it reminds me more of Gondolin, the Hidden City, from the Silmarillion.

Even if the West shore is to the enemy, the White Tower is standing before them! Forth Eorlingas!!!
An original  interpretation, that change of P. Jackson's work. Very good Job.
