A destroyed city matte painting for a university project I am currently undertaking, first attempt at such a piece so crits are a must

Here are a few tips:
-Use more atmosphere, so the background city will blend a bit with the sky.
-Use more contrast on the foreground.
Sorry for my crappy English
Looking for tips and tricks
thanks for the advice made an attempt at the changes and will upload them tomorrow probably for some more feedback
For a first matte painting this is really good♥♥♥ it reminds me of a dark scene in Harry Potter movie. Great! very interesting...
new updated version with the changes m-studios and majora suggested didnt push the contrast too far, hopefully its just enough
take down some of those highlights on the buildings. It's often fun to put them there as it seems to add punch but too often it just ruins everything. Here you're losing a load of depth and the building wind up looking flat and pasted on. Add more atmospheric perspective in between the buildings. It's looking too much like a row of buildings, and not like a massive metropolis.
And take the back out of the clouds. Your buildings are lighter than the sky and it's in breach of the laws of optical physics.
hope that helps, otherwise good job on your first.
I actually thought you had enough atmospheric recession in your first version. As Brendan pointed out, now the sky and ground are out of sync.
Is there a reason the horizon is slightly tilted? Because if there's not, you should straighten it, and if there is, you should make it more obvious.

forgot to add this is going to be composited and we will probably be lowering the lighting later on, so was better that i kept it lighter early on to keep the detail as much as possible.
But i think ill do a seperate version and really attack it with the advice iv gotten here. thanks brendan
the main city section is actually one image and probably why it's slightly tilted now you've pointed that out, ill add more atmosphere between the nearer buildings to help with the depth and tone down the back section aswell as sorting out the lighting situation. cheers elwell
