Great story telling composition, I hope it's not too late to suggest some
variations? The thing is that the main lights don't seem to be fading or maybe
are they too strong? or is it that wood's specularity is too drowned with
respect to too strong of a diffuse ? Make sure to use the linear workflow
(assumed gamma 1), before you tune your light's intensity and add 2.2 gamma only
on post processing /rendered window display step, but making sure to still do it
every time you look at your picture. (Add radiosity if there is none) This would
really be worth it !
