First attempt at some sort of matte painting thing
Not sure what you'd call this, apart from crap/rubbish/lame etc obviously. there are several aspects I'm not entirely happy with but I would love some critique to see if what stands out to me is the same as what stands out to everybody else.

Basically I walk to work/home past this alleyway:

and one day a kind of scene occured to me, so I took a picture on my phone, got it into gimp and layered the shit out of it.

Thoughts, suggestions, abuse ?

I'll smoke whatever you're having Smile(*)

The misses: the cut against the sky is a bit weird (there is a clear rim) but then it may participate in the spooky look, and the gutter isn't too convincing (it should have still puddles and show reflections). But the trashcan replaced by the cart is a nice idea. Overall, nice inspiration and fairly well done.

Thanks!

I know the gutter is poo, I spent longer on that than any other part and by god I tried to put some reflections and still puddles in but I just couldn't make it work, if anyone has any tips on how to do this it would be massively apprieciated ? I could just take it out but I felt at least some sort of suggestion of it was important over nothing at all.

And you are right about the sky too, I should be able to fix that.

Your family of assorted cabling is pretty cool Smile
