can i ask a question?
is that a moon in the background there?
if so why is there no light emanating from it? :(

its a nice picture yea...... but since the moon is there (if that is a moon) it just makes the horizon look a lil flat..... its definitely better than what i can do... but still..... it kinda looks a bit off.....

please dont hate me...

Well, to answer your question - No, I don't hate you hah, I can take some critique ;)
The moon leaves a faint highlight on the mountain just to the right of it and it also causes the bounce light within the shadow area to be purple (it would've been a faint green/blue hue without it - but due to the bounce of 'white' which is actually more blue, it get's bumped to purple) Second reason why it doesn't leave more light traces is because it's a secondary light source, like seeing the moon during broad daylight. Sure, there is some light bouncing off of it but it's blown away by the light volume of the primary source which in this case is a setting sun.
So to sum up, myeah it does look a bit flat so it might've needed a bit of a boost, but I didn't want it to be the primary light source.

Hope that sums it up! =D

yea that about sums everything up lol

and i knew you werent using the moon as a primary its just..... the mountains far right of the moon look a lil lonely is all..... i know theres a way you can make bg lighting without affecting the foreground lighting.... i just dunno what it is lol.... i have seen it before though.. so it does exist....

ill leave you alone now :3 thanks for not getting upset.... some people on here just dunno how to handle critique as well... you know?

Yeah, I know ;)
And of course you can up the value to make it more visible. You have a keen eye!
