    your gradients are way too strong (esp. on the clouds)

    your gloss desaturates (imo gloss should only be used if it's a combination of overlay or color dodge etc, otherwise it just makes whatever's behind it look bland. in other words, gloss should make colors move UP the color picker, instead of to the left)

    your sun's color is off and its shine actually makes things darker (?)

    your base is just an inner shadow (needs edge highlights, some type of stroke/shadow, etc)

    and in general the icon lacks details (clouds in the sky- wait, why are the clouds below the hills?-, grassy texture on the hills, fluffyness/shading to the clouds, what have you)

    edit: lol what, if you don't want critique don't ask what we think about it

    He's only being a critic to help you perfect your theme! These people come and go all the time, you can't let them get to you

    That's not cool dude, he's just trying to give some constructive criticism.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Well, if you're just practicing, you can improve, he's showing you how. You can either accept it, deny it, or a mix of the two. The point of practice is to improve. If no one tells you small/minor mistakes, then how do you know what to improve? Be thankful for people like this.

    If you ask for critiquing, be prepared to get killed.

    Trust me, I've dabbled in the photography world.

    Either way, you don't respond like an immature three year old.
