hey man keep work on your perspective , there R so many errors...
and work hard on you sketch, when you satisfied the sketch or concept then work on color or final touch.
looking forward on your art, good luck :)

As GRMC said, your perspective is all over the place and needs a lot of work.
Your color choice and composition is also not very interesting and your audience is left wondering why they are looking at this painting. You've put a lot of work into something that doesn't tell any kind of story.
Study perspective - start with simple one-(vanishing) point perspectives until you get the hang of them before moving onto anything more complex.
Also do some study on color theory to give you an idea of the best colors to use with each other to create contrast and avoid that muddy, 'everything's the same' look that this piece currently has.
Lastly, create a sense of story in your paintings that invites your audience to participate. If your audience is participating in your painting with their imaginations, it means they're looking at it for longer than 5 secs and that's what you want.

again, I must agree with everybody, you must work your perspective.. almost any geometry book in the bookstore might give you some basic concepts and there are some good DvDs that teach about perspective and composition too.. Remember that all the nice details and texture won't save a concept that's have problems from the very early state ;)

I would recommend studying value before color simply for the fact that it defines form. Even the pallete you have chosen here can be dynamic and interesting with strong enough value control. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing your next piece!
