Easier to say than do, but I feel that is too bad you leave it aside, as the
potential for a hall of fame level pic is there ! the hardest part of lighting
is now PERFECT. We can really feel the time of night and moonshine tone keeping
brain awake.Softness of the shadows is really well underlining all that.  There
are only strange fireflies and too fractal looking materials for chess pawns.
But thanks for sharing that awesome work anyway !
