Great work, especially for one of your first matte paintings! Taking your concept art into consideration I guess this one will turn out great if you just take your time for it!

As you have most probably not worked on all ares yet, it's hard to give specific constructive criticism. But if I'd have to name someting that comes to mind, I'd say the trees on the middle/left top of the painting need to be darkened down a bit, and (but I guess you know that already) I would try to texture the hills, to give them an appropriate detail-density, or rather just a little more grip, as they seem pretty far away anyway.

All in all a great WIP, Best of luck on finishing this painting!

Thankyou for the great feedback! 

I did know about those trees, but I cant work out how to darken those white patches at the top of them? I think I just did a bad cut out...
I was a bit unsure texturing the mountains in the background, but they do look a little strange since everything else is so detailed.
I'll try and apply some of your comments and upload again shortly! 
Thanks again! :)

No Problem.

Concerning the trees, if they are on a seperate layer (at least seperate of the direct background) you could probably use a layer which is set on clipping mask and paint into them.
If not, maybe just drop in the same texture again and play around with the curves until they're dark enough After that delete out the spots you'd like to be hit by light. I think that's what I would try.

You'll figure something out :)
