Beautiful matte , lights are nice , but the moon and the sky are strange.
Good job :).

Great start. You're losing building detail in the darkness (towers) and the moon is the brightest element, so it is becoming the focal point. I would make the building stand out more as the focal element. Also, the light blooms around your lit up windows should be a lot more subtle.

I change the sky, i guess it looks better than the other one. :wink:
what you think?

I liked it a lot... but you can put some more light in the church for example in the towers, PLEASE make that moon a little bit smaller :D
