Over 80 views and no responses. Really shows how unhelpful this forum is.

Acting like an entitled jerk will not help you get critique. Could just be people don't see much that needs fixing. Or the opposite, they have plenty to say but don't know how to word it. Critiquing is not a trivial task, and no one owes you their time.


Against my better judgement, here are some crits:
Try breaking up the bands in the sky to suggest some interesting shapes (clouds/fog, stars, etc). Just bands look boring and make the limited colour palette really obvious.
Consider adding some antialiasing to the mountains.
The sun/moon appears elongated rather than round. Atmospheric distortion tend to make the sun/moon look wider, not taller, but you're probably best off leaving it round.
I think you could use a lighter purple halo around the sun/moon, the current one is barely visible.
The nearest set of mountains doesn't really feel closer because the detail level and feature size is the same as on the mountains further away.
