Beautiful pic.  I like the rings below the island -- I'd wager they're some kind of technology that's keeping the island afloat.

Looks a lot like the Kingdom of Zeal from Chrono Trigger, with the water and caves and whatnot. Ironically, the house is right where the Zeal Palace should be...great pic though, I LOVE waterfall landscapes, favorited and watching, after seeing your gallery, just wow. Such variety and technique!

Really a beautiful piece ! =D
It reminds me of Baten Kaitos : the Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean ! And it has a little Ghibli-esque feeling about it, with the mills and quiet little houses !

I've always had a soft spot for floating islands, probably thanks to Commander Mark's Secret City show that I watched as a kid.

I do agree with earlier commentors about how it reminds me of the Kingdom of Zeal, but also, I'm thinking of Skies of Arcadia. Either way, this is truly amazing. What're the rings underneath the island for; some sort of recycling ability to funnel the water back up to the island, or to propel the island in the sky?

Amazing detail. The design is reminiscent of Hayao Miyazaki. Looks almost like some place that would appear in one of his movies.

Fresh spring water, electricity, little meadows for the alpine goats, small garden for the vegetables, big main house, sheds for the animals and a great view. And I suppose that those three rings keep the dirigibles, the aircraft and the spacecraft away. Who can ask for more? Sold!
