Hey guys,

Newbie here, great to see some of the fantastic work being done. Very inspirational.
Anyways just wanted your 2 cents on this shot i'm working on. More of a composite than a matte painting. Working at 2K and its a frame from a moving zoom shot from a background still. Using cut out plates in 3D space in Nuke.
Any comments would be cool.

Heya, good start I think. There are some comments I could make though. First of all, the lighting is too uniform, try to add some specularity on the edges maybe? Also, there are lots of light(s) in a city like that during the night. Light should be coming from the streets, from lit windows, etc... Hope this helps :)

Also too...there's some negative space going on behind the buildings there at the horizon that looks bare. Might be a good idea to plug it up with something, add more buildings on the back to the vanishing point.
