I really like this. Reminds me of a documentary I was watching about one of Saturn's moons and how it has geysers coming out underneath - but this would be what I'd think it would be like if it froze and humans did live there. congrats on a well deserved DD
It's a good work, and good eye on composition, not even noticed til mentioned. Depending on how your layers are setup, just flip layers of the town. You've achieved a feeling of motion with the ice column. It may feel like the town is going to get sucked into an ice tornado with the town directly in front.
The scale of this is awe-inspiring. And I think it's just fine being right-heavy. It adds a dimension to the picture insofar as the viewer extrapolates outward from it, toward themselves. It makes me wonder if there's a huge, entire cavern of ice that this view only touches upon.
Beautiful colors. Yes, perhaps a tad heavy on the upper right, but that's really only because there are shadows up there and not anywhere else. The ice column looks like it's transparent? Amazing, and a little nerve wracking at the same time, haha.
