That back tint makes a big difference, for me. Still kinda tangled, but it's a jungle, I don't know how much more it can be helped.

Nice little scene, i think it would help if you were to bring out the foreground by lightening it up a bit



I did quick edit to try to get across what I mean...I also brightened up the sky color which I think helps bring everything out a bit to.

I'm sad to see this cluster survived to the almost final version! And your understanding of clusters is so advanced otherwise!  :blind:

Beautiful, wonderful, well done.

edit: though, at a second look, the highlight on the side of the stone could be laboured more to be made slightly more translucent/better tapered and perhaps a bit less harsh.

Forgive my cluster sensei!


Tried to do what I could with the highlight. Not quite sure how to fix it really.

It's just a matter of pushing things around until nothing lines up. Clusters are fun.

I don't think you're nearly finished. The highlight on the statue looks a bit crappy; it seems far too bright and distracting. Unfinished even. Also, I don't think the big eye on the bird looks right, it doesn't really fit with the rest of the piece. edit:

Agreed about the statue highlight. It seems slightly odd to me that it would be more blue than the statue itself whereas the rest of the light is yellow. I'm of two minds about the saturation of the lightest blue; it competes a bit with the light rays in the background but a greyer tone might not work out as well  :blind:

@ska: I assumed it was a macaw, hence the eye :L
