well done, the red planet is a great theme to paint something =)
did you read stanislaw lem's phantastic stories (dont know if they are called so in english, I only have the german version ...) ? in that book is a great short story about a rocket crash on mars ...
maybe ya gonna read this ;)

I like the colours and your shading at the buildings.
but if you look at the sky in the left hand side, I think it's a bit too smooth in comparison to the harsh contrast at the mountains ... especially the lower mountains, they are maybe too dark.
also the picture could be a bit more red, but that's maybe a matter of taste ...

Very nice painting and color scheme.
The meeting of mountains and horizon is pretty.. harsh though. I would suggest either heat distortion or obscuring dust on the lower part of the mountains?

Hard to screw up a place with barely any atmosphere. Actually, Greenhouse gasses can work to our advantage on this one!
