The Starry Heavens Above Me by biancomanto The Starry Heavens Above Me by biancomanto
At the moment I study Philosophy at university, so my aspiration for the future is to graduate and become a philosopher (and maybe a teacher at high school).
This means, in my opinion, the possibility to continue to dream and to stay "in contact" with the Transcendent aspects of reality, but also to reach a sort of communion with Nature, which is the greatest source of inspiration for artists and poets.
In Kant's words: "Two things fill the mind with ever-increasing wonder and awe, the more often and the more intensely the mind of thought is drawn to them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."Critique of Practical Reason (1788)

Really great original idea, this sort of image is hardly done in Vue. In fact most (i could speculate about 90%) of Vue images are daylight. Night scenes are hard to come by and twilight scenes like this are almost non-existent! :dance:
Your technique is good however there's something areas which really don't fuze together, the most obvious of which is the character, he just doesn't seem like he's relaxed in his position. I know how hard this can be though! Your candles in the trees and general custom positioned lighting is really nice.
The clouds could use a little work just on the details but the composition works well and the lighting that is happening on the mid-ground clouds is awesome! :D

Overall I gave your impact only 3 stars because some of the technique in it (like the character and such) break the image a little and distract from that tranquil environment that is so imperative for your image. :)
What do you think?

I really cant add anything to what has already been said in the other comment, 'cept for the obvious, and i'll only say it once: This picture is simply beautiful! But you already knew that, i guess. Even so, This picture is beautiful! Oops, there I said it twice.

Very effective lighting (even just the top half alone looks fantastic)! Good to see someone experimenting with local point lights. Clouds are really good too.

GORGEOUS lighting and sky! The candles throw it off for me a little, because I'm not sure if they're supposed to be floating or attached to the trees somehow.

This is just incredible, it's got to be one of my top favs on dA!

The lighting, the tranquil softness, the vast heavens above -- all aspects make you want to jump right in.
