beautiful work, norberto! Very painterly, and the depiction of light is extremely pleasing to my eyes.

The final video, as well as the BTS video, is a great bonus! Terrific job all around. Thank you for sharing this!

Thanks James !

Why did you change the composition? The original one was perfect, this one is quite killing the whole work. ;(
