before I even read that it was Dylan Cole's influence I thought to myself it reminds me of his dvd. That palm blends in with that background rock, try darkening that palm a little more to separate it. I would add a little bit of waves around sand as well as some shadow to show that it's really in water. Push those mountains in the back even further, right now they read as if they are on the same plain as mind ground rock with arch. Nice stuff by the way.

Tropical, fantastic and a well-shaped concept composition! The secluded atmosphere gives a wonderous and magical sense, welcoming but mysterious simultaneously.

However, although I have not used matte-painting techniques I see a few weak spots.

Firstly, the colour is not as consistent as it could be, in terms of the sky and the water: the blue sky varies unnaturally and is a little too close to magenta in some areas, as compared with the ocean-blue cove. But you do have the right colours in the perfect spots, drawing one's attention into your scene.

Secondly, there is not enough contrast between where the sun shines and where the shadow falls: unless dullness plays an important role in the composition, open-air scenes are usually best viewed sunny, especially when they're tropical. You do have an excellent idea of where the shadows fall, so all that's needed there is greater extremes of light and dark.

And finally, as mentioned by someone else in the comments, it could use more sharper edges. But in saying so, some of the blurriness gives it a natural feeling, so don't make it too sharp either. It's a balance that's needed.

But speaking of balance, you've got it perfect. There is depth in your scene, a depth not only in imagery but in your visualisation, your ideas and your imagination. One could be readily drawn into this world not for the tropical feeling but for its ancient wonder, untapped like the deeper depths of your mind.

Keep it up, because I'm inspired by your work! XD

Actually, now that I've looked at more of your gallery I've given comments way above my level. Sorry if I've offended you in any way. ^^';

Good luck in your future!
