That would be pretty close to the types of average and bigger cities that I hope to see in more or less distant future.
Some greenery and nature within a strongly civilized area still isn't a bad thing at all. It just doesn't give the impression that the landscape turned completely artificial, although I also really depictions of such cities, most significantly Coruscant.
But still, I would prefer to live in a civilized area with some natural landscape around.

Nevertheless, no questions regarding the artwork itself. This is just amazing, great job! :)

Named in honor of the ancient Sumerian capitol, yes?

I'm currently taking Ancient Civilizations class, and learning about this city, Eridu, right now. Didn't know that they had this awesome technology. Perhaps, as my teacher theorizes, aliens are responsible for advancing human civilization.

This a nice piece of artwork. I love how the blue lights travel around the city, and the metallic texture of the buildings.

haha thanks, im a big fan of the ancient world, love to throw a scifi twist in it also. Something mythical and magical and mysterious about our ancient past helps inspire my work a lot.

Beautiful. I haven't drawn many cityscapes in my life so I'm looking for inspiration and this is wonderfully inspirational. The blue light is lovely and it's great to such a wide painting.

WOW, this is simply an amazing piece of artwork: I can't really quantify it, but it just looks everything like it's a bustling city. The lighting just does so much for the mood of the piece, too. I can't help but think that it looks ever so slightly like Montreal (it's mostly the mountain that does it), but that's probably entirely subjective. Great job.

Very well done. The atmosphere is dense and polluted, the conglomeration of buildings speaks of the overpopulation and the battle for living space. You spared no detail, even down to what looks like flying billboards. 5/5!
