Okay. I'm done. I decided to submit before I made yet more changes. I will never be happy with this, so here it is! I had torches on the building at one point and realized it changed the entire lighting dynamic, so I killed that idea. I had fog too. Didn't like it.

the background photo is mine. I am linking the moon, figure, and tombstones shortly. (4 years and 148 days ago)

I see from your SBS a lot of work was done but I think the final image is too dark to appreciate the details (and I'm using a 27" high res monitor). You could brighten it up a bit and still maintain the drama.

Well Spaceranger, I did lighten this. LOL, you wouldn't believe how many versions I have. I lost a lot of stone detail dropping it into my photo. I also had tombstones that I spent a long time shading for the environment, and then i lost my link and spent over an hour trying to search it. I finally said %$#@ it. I really like my torches, but they required extensive highlight changes on the building trim, so I nixed that too. I can't say it hasn't been fun!

I know what you mean, I do the same thing, trying all kinds of versions of my image. This looks much better, we can see the details and it's still dramatic. Too bad about the tombstones, I assume you tried searching your history. Even without the tombstones this deserves a good score IMHO.

I accidentally deleted my history at work yesterday. It was a circus of calamities with this thing. When I resubmitted this morning I realized part of a layer was left visible in my revision that looked like amateur hacking.

This looks much better than the original dark version. But the moon is gone, I don't know if that was intentional or not

author says:

Geez! Tripped up by rushing again. I'm putting the moon back! Thanks!
