i agree, the light rays are too much, but it's voluntarily exaggerated.

I love em! Great work. The only thing i noticed was the colour value in the pixels around the leaves in the second matte. They are taken from the original plate, but the semi-transparent pixels at the edge of the leaves do not match your new background. I hope you understand what i mean there, let me know if you don't and i'll try again lol.

But yea i really love these mattes, they look very natural. I could expect to see them on the cover of the next movie :D

now i see what you've noticed. maybe they should be less transparent and more dark ?

yea sorry it was a bad explanation. I just read it back, and i wouldn't know what i meant :? lol
yea the second paitning. The leaves in the bottom left. Its coz of the bright bg in the plate. Its actually not easy to notice, so maybe just doing a simple colour overlay using the colour picker to get the right colour value would solve it. I was being pretty nit-picky, but you left no choice with such awesome paintings! lol

i'm not really sure! the sun is much better, but you have (personal for me) to much haze at some parts of your image, it doesn't look very natural to me.
f.ex. in front of your tree in the second image and at the arm of lara craft in the first one! :) you know what i mean ? :)
