oi das ist dick. mir gefällt, dass du das bidl echt dunkel gelassen hast. hat was sehr ruhiges und dramatisches. schöne sache. stab und berg könnten sich vielleicht etwas mehr überlappen, aber sonst echt schöne arbeit. =]
Look at a photograph of an overcast scenery. There is a lot of refelected ambient light on an overcast day, and there aren't any deep shadows. On the other hand look at a photo of a sunny day, with stark contrast and hard shadow, open that in photoshop and tune down the brightness. It will look exactly like this image. Also look at the clouds. That's how clouds look that are hit from the side by bright sunlight. An overcast sky does not have the same contast, but is more uniformly light grey. For certain this image has been painted as sunlit and then darkened.
Did you intentionally have a big mountain behind the foreground guy's staff? It seems like a missed opportunity to have nice depth and paralaxing. But I am way below your level so I don't know. Maybe it would contrast too much and distract from the focal point? I'd love to know your thoughts about that decision.
