I think the trees behind the cabin that you're starting to fill in help a lot too so it's not just "HEY I'M A LONELY TREE!!!" :D

Still trying to figure out the color for the mountains. Nothing looks right to me  :-\

I believe the colors you had for the mountain before were much better. think less saturated and lighter in value. Perhaps the background trees could have slightly more saturation to further show the distance between them and the mountains.

Think of a layer of sky/atmosphere between the foreground and the mountain. Everything will be a little more blue the further away it gets. If you have to, color your mountains as if they were in the foreground first and then put a translucent layer of your sky's color over it and mess around with that.

Personally I like the new colours of the mountains a lot more. They are less dull and give a crisp air, mountain feeling. They are perhaps a bit too high saturated and a little too purple and if you compare it to the forest layer before it the colours melt a bit too much together looking like they are right next to eachother, like Voxxitronic and Ryumaru was talking about.

One more thing I would like to point out is that the chimney seem to be a bit out of angle if you compare it with the rest of the house. Perhaps it's because you've shaded it like it would be in the middle of it but the position is too much to the left, seeing it from this view. try moving it "back" in the picture and it will look more right.

else than that I think it's coming out really nice!

Excuse the quick bump. Almost finished with this! To do: clean the trees, work on the grass, refine mountains.

I prefer the blue-ish colors for the montains. Right now, for a background object, the mountains have too much contrast.

ya, the mountains look like there is no atmoshpere between them and the viewer due to the high contrast and color.  It makes the mountains look like they are closer than they should, which makes it look wierd because if they were as close as the look they would be way bigger.
