    Honesty is the best policy. ;)

    Been a while since I completed something but yesterday I won one battle with myself and actually finished this.

    Completion time was about 2hrs on a 2000x1134 canvas.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there,

    To my eye there's too much contrast, perhaps show some more light and color coming from the sunset hitting the trees, the character and ground in the front.

    My usual mistake is the lack of contrast, but im working on it

    EDIT: I would perhaps consider tuning down the glowing spot in the center of the sky, to make it more gentle for the eye and also to lose some of that contrast.

    Yes, that also crossed my mind. The thing with contrast is that you got to be brave to use it. At least once you've got to go to the edge with it, far extremes to get a real fine tuning of it. :p

    Thanks!

    J is right the foreground would never be black. It just flattens the picture. You need ambient light to make it interesting and believable.
