Wow. Lots of details in there - it reminds me of something out of Portal 2! It looks really great - but that being said, I have a couple things I'd like to mention:

I of wish the front pegs on the bridge were fleshed out a bit more. It took me a while to realize there was a path all along the bottom of the page - my eye went directly into the framed hole on the bottom left there - the one with the octagonal segments. If there was something to push the bridge pegs out more, it would help me eye wander to the right side of the page, instead of being stuck on that area.

Also, I'm not sure what those horizontal bars are. They really stand out against the rest of the mech, which looks like it's not so comfortably placed in the swamp, so the horizonal lines are really sticking out in contrast, and I'm not sure why they recede into a light opacity like that.

Anyway, otherwise, it looks pretty good! 5 stars because I hate quantifying art!

Hi, I really like your style, you would be interested in participating in the contest for the realization of the cover of my sci-fi literary magazine?

Looks... random. By that I mean that there is no real purpose of the structures depicted here. But as a practice for the atmosphere, distances, scale, and composition. I like it a lot.

Absolutely phenomenal, I really dig the way you have fused a muggy swamp and metalic structures in one. The end result is really quite special. Nice work there!
