I do, however, have some advice....not as an artist, but as someone who has studied art:
Think about the path of the person's eyes viewing the picture. You want to draw them to your focal point, but you have to realize what that focal point is. In my art history classes, every painting was divided into a big "X" that covered the canvas....invariably, paintings draw you towards the center of that X......but, of course there are exceptions....and of course this always doesn't apply....but think about it when you paint...you've got the potential. The fade/stream in this painting actually draws one's eyes OFF the canvas....
Great job though, and a good eye for a tough medium.
