This is the kind of background I'd like to offer for YCH sales/auctions.
About 5 hours? Something like that, could use a bit more refining but I'm happy with it for now.

This looks really nice! Great work with the reflected light, the forms feel very solid. My only critique would be to consider treating the trees in the background through the stone hollow with more lost edges-- right now the leaf size/sharpness is the same as the ones in the foreground, so it compacts the distance slightly. But really stellar study overall!

Ah good point thank you, I felt like it was flattened by them, I just wasn't sure how to approach a fix P= I might come back to that later. Cheers!

You bet! I am just now learning more about edge control the last few months so it is on my mind. If you want some great insights on that, Greg Manchess is who I've been learning from on such.

Nice, I can tell the difference! Definitely a better sense of depth/space now :) I'm glad the article was of help!
