Hi Deke.

actually I had already been to your website, and I found interesting to see how you did your scene with the destroyed city.

I like your flames better than mine. I used combustion particles, what have you used?

Riktor, you were completely right, I should have taken the moon out, maybe give it just some moonlight on the clouds. Using a moon that big, looks like a Cliché for some romantic movie :)

I am giving more attention to those details now. I am currently working in short scene with 3D elements, where I will use a moon again :) this time I will make it much smaller, I promise.
Regarding your challenge, I must say it was very nice to enter it, and I learnt a lot.
The merit for my image, goes to you, without your challenge, there wouldn't have been made any image.
Thank you.

Best regards to you all,
