Hi Thomas, I think this is a painting about 90 percent well done. That red in the sky is very well done and contrasts with the cool grey beautifully. What I want to see now is more colour variation in the foreground, warmer as one gets closer and in the buildings, the central one principally. If you take a look at Bill Mahler's Sursum Corda (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=518740) you can get an idea of what I mean, remembering your building is a lot smaller. Perhaps he will come along and comment.

A pleasant little scene with nice colors. But you've positioned the horizon line almost exactly dead center in the image, which is usually something you want to avoid doing. I think you can also liven up the image by creating a little more variation in the heights of the trees.

I don't see any energy in this painting. It is static to me.
Nothing is moving.
