Certainly looks as if it was inspired by Friedrich

But this one is less barren, which makes it interesting in its own way

Spooky and beautiful. Nice one.

Before I red author's comment, my thought was "if only the monks were turned towards ruins it'd be exactly like Caspar D. Friedrich". So, you may count it as a compliment - you've managed to grasp the atmosphere of Friedrich's works.

I got cold looking at this one. Very eerie. You do a good job of creating moods.

I have long been a fan of Friedrich, and noticed the abbey right away in the thumbnail. Great interpretation and presentation. I am guessing you know the original painting you used as inspiration was destroyed by fire (during WWII, if I am not mistaken). I bet it would have been magnificent to see in person.
Your painting captures the mood perfectly, and the attention to tree limbs and texture is impressive as hell. Spectacular, man!
