 Great palette! I agree with Theo that this could be an awesome adventure game screen, which gives me warm tingles (which I certainly hope are from nostalgia)!

Good depth / perspective. Looks like a cool point-and-click adventure screen!

Lovely depth.
I'd like to see a shadow on the water before the wall in the mid-ground - as you have done on the right.
Fantastic all the same.

It reminds me one of those French or Italian classical paintings! Very nice.
