This is a really decent piece of art; I like it! However, there are a couple things that feel slightly amateur to me, no offense. one of them is the white hole to the right of the picture; you could easily seal that up with more storm images or by expanding the current image. Also, the tops of the houses suggest white, which also could be fixed by covering it with more storm. If you need to cover stuff like that, just get a large storm image and put it behind the minecraft city. The city itself is FANTASTIC and I approve heartily! Overall good piece, with a couple small things that would make it much better!
What do you think?

This is a very great work, I love the shading effects you have done for it.

I have to say that the storm photo you used is fairly low quality and very easily kills the looming effect. The textures you use for some of the blocks are a tad jarring. I'm guessing you used gravel for the asphalt, I would suggest changing to texture to something a bit more smooth, but still really grainy, so you can't as easily see the block-to-block pattern.

The shadows are brilliant! I would sugget smoothing the leaves shadows because light doesn't bounce through tress in a direct way, it comes out very blurred.

Especially looked at the fence pieces used cleverly to get those phone masts going. Looks pretty in other senses as well, nice work :)

I know those two images don't go together, but the lighting in the town and the storm look really awesome together.

When I first saw this I was going to respond with something like...
"OMG! Are you OK? Where did you take this? Is your pet duck OK?!?"
Then I saw the block houses and was like....
"Oh, OK, cool storm. Meow :3"
Nicely done! Clap

God, does anyone wonder what kind of Tornado it is? Like the rating of an EF Tornado?

I think it's a 4-5 EF Tornado.

not a tornado. wall cloud of a tornadic storm. can be an indicator that conditions within the storm are capable of producing one.

no.  seen many a dust storm and will take those any day over tornado.   but even still, if you learn about the dangers you can learn to avoid or minimize the threat.  I lived in Swisher county in the Texas Panhandle for a few years - average of 52 tornados a year.  you learn fast how to read the sky, to pay attention to weather alerts, where shelter is, how to read radar images from tv.

I'd recommend changing the picture to a more distinct looking tornado, adding some mountains/hills and some rain. I don't think it's a tornado at all, but it could just be the angle.

That entire formation is called a "Supercell." The upper portion of the storm is called the anvil,  the rotating part nearer to the ground is called a "Mesocyclone." If you look closely on the right side you'll see a little lip sticking out from the bottom of the rotation, that is a "shelf" cloud. Basically the Mesocyclone will rotate as hot humid ground air is exchanged with cold dry artic air. Somewhere under the Mesocyclone (out of view in this picture) a tornado might form. 

Oddly enough, mountains and hills usually make tornado formation harder, so it's not impossible, but less likely to see a Supercell of this size in mountains and hills. And rain with supercells is SUPER WEIRD, it's not like a normal thunderstorm or rainstorm. The cell builds and builds and builds in intensity. And often there won't be rain or hail around large portions of the storm (like the anvil and shelf). But then when massive hot air updrafts get sucked up into the Mesocyclone, rain, hail, winds start pouring down like mad. when the updraft is really violent it swirls, sucking up dirt, and sucking the moisture of the rain around it. And that is when you can see a tornado.

It is both amazing and beautiful to see these form. And trust me... as a new transplant to Oklahoma (that learned about all this stuff in the last year)...it's just..wow.

My cousin's house was destroyed in the May 20th tornado in Moore, OK this year. You can see a before/after picture here: fav.me/d66xn48

As someone who lives in the heart of Tornado Alley, that's definitely not a tornado... but I get the effect you were going for. Great job!

From my aspect (with meteorology knowledge) that looks like a mesocyclone rather than a tornado. Still looks epic though.
