Hi Everyone,

Here's my latest digital matte-painting, titled "Doorway To Heaven"! I have used Adobe Photoshop to do it; without any graphic tablet!

Comments & critiques, as always, are heartily welcome!

Make sure you're not getting your basic light direction wrong when combining elements.

The foreground ruins are lit by a high angle, bright mid-afternoon sunlight. The mountains and clouds look like they were shot at sunset.

There's a huge disconnection between the two, and it really hits the believability of the shot.

Remember that the eye is very good at picking up things like this (even if it's only subconsciously), so it's got to be 100% right.
