I often enjoy doing night time versions of my day scenes so I thought I would try it for Sanctuary as well. To be honest I probably spent a bit too much time trying different ideas that didn't really work for me. This is the one I ended up disliking the least so I thought I would share it. I may add some of the others to the Pickle Jar shortly and may continue tinkering with this scene. Let me know what you think!

"Nice - but"
Although I like it, I feel that it is a bit bare. Something (a person or something else) needs to be in the scene.

"Love this"
Love all the versions of Sanctuary, makes you wish you could live there forever. Thanks my friend.

Sneaky,Ryan. Sneaky easter egg kitty.

BTW, on a recent road trip (MT to NM) I saw a few formations in suitable lighting that you might like. Strata and selective erosion NW of ABQ. Want?

"Cat good. Dithering bad."
Too much odd pixelation/dithering, e.g. both handrail and ceiling. Both day and night versions. Running my copies through photoshop to smooth.

"Sanctuary Night"
My mistake. The DAY one has a cat. Can a person (reflecting) be put in the night one?

"Sanctuary Night"
I love it! In the day shot, you have a person standing there (using the sanctuary). I think it would be great to include a person in the evening one as well. Whaddya think?

"One more thing....."
One thing I forgot. That warm glow hints of a room that's behind the viewer. Its light reflects off of the tile and the inside railing. It is also inviting, and makes me want to see what that room might look like.

"I Love This"
I really like the daytime version, but there are times when even beautiful daytime scenes seem one-dimensional. Often, there is nothing hidden to peak your imagination, everything is lit and available for viewing. I love the night scene. It's mysterious, yet inviting. Though it's not visible in itself, I see reflections of moonlight in the valley mist and on the railing. And, yes, I see the cat!! I'm glad he/she is away from the edge (since it looks like a long drop to the valley!). Yeah, I'd like to visit there! And.....I love the multi-screen version, tho' I don't need it.

"Dual-screen 5K missing"
@Ryan: Once again, the dual-screen 5K render seems to be missing. Could you add it, please?

Overall I like this. Not as good as the daytime version, but still nice.

"I see the cat now..."
...but it's still missing something in the middle where the steps are focusing our attention on, well, nothing.

"Not lovin it"
It seems to have lost the crispness of the daytime version. The railing doesnt look smooth at all. However, I did find the cat after searching for way longer than I should have. Glad he/she is still there.

"Love it"
@ Xetal... Look closer ;)

...I prefer the day version this time around - and not just because the cat's not there. But that's the thing: it's missing something or someone in the middle where the cat used to be.

"I can see why you're still tinkering..."
The color of the lighting for the scene makes it look kind of like an autumn version of the scene. Also, I'm wondering where the light is coming from - unlike the day scene, I'm not sure I see the planters or the railings casting any shadows?

"it's nice"
