Pretty cool and wow! it's like a sequel of Floating City

I just wished more contrast between background and foreground.

Thanks and sorry about that. I tried to make it more realistic and the reference images of Santorini didn't have atmospheric depth. I tried to use the shadows to make it more 3D to try to distinguish between layers plus using parallax to also distinguish layers without compromising the overall look of it.

This reminds me of some of the sea buildings in FFXIV.  I had to take a screeny for reference http://i.imgur.com/bHk8jcp.png .  Beautiful map I honestly think this one is the best out of all of them.

As Giamma mentioned, quite hard to tell where can I land.
The thing is, you nailed it at the begining, because of the structures that served as roofs, forcing you to make the foreground a bit darker. Plus, the objectives flow naturally, so you can't get lost.
I don't know, maybe you should've covered the entire city with conveniently placed roofs. :^)

Yeah maybe, but I like the openness of it too.

I actually don't play Overwatch and I haven't been to Greece at all, but I would love to go there.
