2 thoughts after looking it over the forest in background seems really lite beneath the tree canopy.
Also have you ever thought of using some textures to add some more realism/believability to the image. The 2 places that stand out to me is the ground in the foreground as well as maybe some bark on the tree behind your focal point.

Suggestions only! Very Happy Very Happy

I agree with Martrex. I think you have to emphasize your subject here. Apply the design principles. I think there are some breaking those design principles because every individual has its own taste of art. But mostly do follow it to keep their art pleasing to look at. Wink Wink

@martrex thnx for the feed back always appreciated , well the trees are lite because of the idea that trees that are far are fair
as for the barks its a cool idea yet i cant apply it for every single tree , but i will try and same goes for the texture

With two different light sources you will have to re-think your shadows and more importantly your shading. Top right light source will be more powerful than the introduced light source....introduced ligth source bottom left will cause some mior shadows but will also effect the left hand wall.

Not going to tell you how to fix it, give it a go and we will see what happens.

A critique is rather difficult with the Deviant logo right in the center but I'll give it a go. Overall I feel it lacks "focus" and I mean that in more of a figurative sense. There is not enough to really pull my eyes in especially if I were to first come upon the image in thumbnail. Dont get me wrong...technique-wise it's pretty good but you need something for the viewer to want to "stay for a while". I do still feel it a rather unfair to critique with the darn logo in there.

and the logo doesnt effect the image trust me
