The image has taken longer than expected but I am quite happy with the result. The city has mostly been done with the help of Photobash's Dubrovnik City package. For some more Game of Thrones feeling I had to add a dragon of course. I personally like the open story and the contrast between the sunrise & peaceful mood and the dragon. Will it become dangerous for the city or is it just flying around?

This is an incredible piece with lush colors, brilliant textures, and beautiful technique. The stark light, shining from the distance sets off the entire scene perfectly, shining on all of the details that make the scene full and elaborate. The piece makes you wonder what the soldier looking out over the city is thinking; will it be a peaceful evening, or will danger strike? Is this a somber moment for him, or an exciting one? So many emotions can be evoked by this pictures. So much curiosity that can't be totally satisfied in the picture alone, you really want to delve into the city itself to see what's there. It's absolutely stunning! Great job. :)

i love the colors, a good blend and crisp, they the details really pop. the sunset is very lifelike, and i like the way you dont focus on the what im assuming is a dragon, its in the shot but not the main focal point is what i mean, there are lots of layers and little treasures in this piece. i really enjoy your work, this one is very eye catching and looks very nice as a background picture on large displays

the structures in this are very well placed, no clutter and gives a more realistic look of a very old city, good spacing. Your skyline is gorgeous, i enjoy all the colors and styles used in the clouds, they are very appealing to look at especially in the area where the sunset meets the sky, very good blending of textures.

over all my favorite part of this i'd have to say is the buildings with the mountain in the background, that area is just so well done i forget there is another half of beauty to this.

Its excellent work.

---------------------------

Personally I prefer a picture without mythic elements, so I prefer more a medieval approach, perhaps more soldiers, and local dress people, to this picture, elements from real history, not fantasy ones. 
But I do not criticize for this, the picture and the artist, I only give my opinion for what I prefer, or what i would like to see.

Many Congratulations .

It would be an unusual time of the day for a surprise dragon attack :D What I like most here is your careful choice of the tree stock photo on the right - making sure to have it so there's light diffusing through the leaves where the sun is behind them :)
