Beautiful.
I love how the white of Gondolin contrasts with but at the same time adds to the green of the valley

GOD bless

amazing, it looks so good, Aredhel looks so beautiful, its just sad what happens to her.
(Just one question, didnt it say they removed all the bushes and trees far around the city so their elven eyes could spot even the snakes in the grass?) The city itself is just wonderful <3

Marvellous, great detail and color. Good to see Tolkien cities described as beautiful actually portrayed as beautiful cities. Surrounding landscape is spectacular.

Absolutely stunning. Beautiful work. Gondolin is perfect. The Echoriath, the Tumladen, everything is beautiful. 

I imagine Glorfindel, Ecthelion, and Egalmoth (I'm almost definitely sure they were the ones who were assigned to protect her) are waiting on their horses just behind the viewer.

Wow! I love this! This is an beautiful piece, with a great sense of depth and grand atmosphere. This really transports me to Middle Earth. The city really draws the eye--and as impressive as it is, the setting is so wonderfully portrayed it's easy to just get lost in all the details. Great work!
