Good use of tone, block colours and light contrast, with interesting subject matter and full thought-out detail such as the vegetation, sparks and small fire which all add to the picture as a whole. In terms of content the picture focuses your attention away from the edges and into the light, but it bounces your attention back out with the change, settling your gaze in a circle around the rails, the explorer/soldier character and spiralling back in, out again and discovering a new detail.

All typical critique language aside, your eyes get drawn around the picture's lines and curves, noticing new details on each sweep, with the colours adding a wonderful sense of nature reclaiming the area, combined with the futuristic technology to give it a surreal-but-possible feel to the picture.

All in all, congratulations, it's a wonderfully made image and certainly very talent evident.

This is very nice! It is very sprawling! I can feel just how big the room is! Yes I don't know how many people already said this, but the green light in the center is very bright! It makes me wonder why the person would be using his head mounted light, if not just for the sake of more light. Altogether though a very nice piece of work.

Love the colors and lighting, the razor-thin highlights and nearly invisible texture work are great touches, too!

Agree with GD's comment about the blown-out green portion in the center-
my eye immediately jumped to that, but after it had figured out there wasn't much there to see besides brightness,
I started bouncing between the points of color on either side, and the secondary light source above,
in a way that mimicked the trajectory the fallen car would have taken.
That made it immediately obvious to me that it was something that had fallen from above,
and brought attention to the figure in the foreground and the still-hanging traincar in the background, giving a nice sense of story to the piece.
I think that while you may not have intended for it to be the main focus, having that white space in the center grabbing the eye helps make the rest of the image look richer and more detailed, and at the same time makes the viewer take in the image a little piece at a time; so to me it actually strengthens the piece in a weird way.

Absolutely love the perspective on this piece. Its nice to see you pushing even harder and
breaking away from your comfort zone. Also like the scale in this piece and when it comes to details
you know how to do those well.

The only slight critique I have for you is that the main light source (green light) is pulling the viewer towards it,
but there is not enough detail in there to hold the attention. I think you could've either dimmed that light slightly
to give more attention to the fire and the character or add more depth to that area to the hold the viewer in there for a bit.
Critique- cause I want you to improve, but apart from that its awesome!

I hope you're enjoying your Christmas day.

Yeah I guess I should've dimmed that green light, you're right, I didn't actually count on it as being the main focal point.
Thanks man, I appreciate it!
