I'm guessing this is an air brush project?

I love the vibrant colors. Colors that grab you are always positive. However, here is the problem I have with this: it's like half of a landscape that is looking into a mirror. The left and right side are almost identical. So when I see this, I am, well, bored. There needs to be some variation in this piece to keep me interested. This looks like a cookie-cutter piece that you would find on a coffee mug or beach towel. Change-up the composition so it works in tandem with your powerful colors.

Hope that helps. Paint on!

I have to agree with Ryan (Mr. Duh ;) ) on pretty much every point. Excellent colors, but too symmetrical. Needs more interest, I think, especially since this is a popular style. The contrast of the trees on the one hand and the shimmer and clouds on the other is nice, and there's definitely a good vibe going here. One other thing - the shimmer should be coming straight toward the viewer. As it is it's going a little bit canvas-left. Thanks for sharing Will/Bill/William/Mr. Hovis/Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself My Name is Hov. 8)
