Absolutely gorgeous scene indeed. While your "experiment" contains the
danger of never finishing scene building, it is absolutely essential for
reaching any level of perfection. I do something less extreme than you

but those are coming from RL... Anyway, this is a landmark image.

I can only approve.

Thanks! My thoughts go to the numerous who are threatened of losing
