This is a gorgeous piece of work, though there are a few tiny issues. First, although obviously Earth (or Equestria, as it were) by the presence of the moon in the sky, it is somewhat difficult to see where Celestia actually is. I see what looks like a large rock, some moss maybe, and a large structure that looks like a horn. Also, I don't know the exact intention, but it would seem as though you were going for a "they are leaning on two sides of a window" look. That look is slightly ruined by their horns being cut off. Repositioning their heads could fix that.

I give you an 11/10 on this piece. It made me tear up just a bit...

Ohh, where to start? I simply love this piece. Perhaps it isn't coincidence that I heard the song that inspired this piece for the first time today. Vision gets a solid 5, because you have created art that is exactly parallel to the music that inspired it.

Originality takes a wee bump to 4.5 because the "two sides" concept has been done time and time again, but it's only a minor bump because it makes so much sense for this piece....Which leads me to technique.

Technique scores a solid five. I particularly like that you purposefully left the backgrounds blurry (while still showing the viewer that celestia and luna are in the ruined castle and on the moon, respectively), as this draws the focus to the princesses themselves, who are incredibly detailed.

Now for impact. Impact scores a perfect five, and this is why: Their eyes. For some reason, their eyes really stuck out to me. Celestia crying with sadness (duh), but also with regret for what she had to do, while luna cries tears (also of sadness) but with only a small bit of regret and more anger. The eyes really set the mood for both mares, and for the piece in general, especially given the inspiration.
Bravo, good sir. Bravo.
