Did you know that there is a color that you only used for 8 pixels? I think that's a waste, since you don't really notice it.

The other waste, in my opinion, is the dithering on the road. It doesn't really add anything. You could accomplish the same thing by just picking a midtone between those colors and making the road that color.

Lastly, the ears on the shadow stick out too far.

That's about it for now. I like how it has a story attached to it...

I bet those "ears" are a hat, Stairway. Like a fishmerman's hat where they hand the extra hooks and such.

The thing I'd love to see in this is more contrast. It's currently really hard to for me to see the shadow and everything looks really dull. Putting some highlights on the fence and marking out individual, or maybe clumps, of leaves in the trees and giving them a rich highlight would really make it a lot more appealing, I think.
