Bonafied Grande Nut
mtrpls said:The only thing that looks bad is the green-ness of the tree; a true night shot would display the tree as dark black against a black background. As well, the colored nature of the background doesn't realistically lend to a night shot. Other than that, it would be very convincing.

HoosierDaddy said:I think you're real close to having a great shot, the second scene even more than the first. The only thing I would comment on that hasn't been mentioned yet is crispness of the shadows. I'd expect the moon to cause a more diffuse shadow than we see. As it is now, the shadows seem to be coming from a close point-source (your light) rather than a much more distant and dim reflection. That's my $0.02.
