Once again you made an interesting image. Now with snowy mountains in the background. You are indeed very creative and your work inside the biodome is fabulous. The reflecting architect lamp does still bother me. Any way for you to make a setup where you use real sunlight as source - perhaps.

Unfortunately, not at this time. All my windows face north, and this would be extremely difficult outdoors. Obviously, when I'm able I should try sunlight, either when I've got access to a south facing window, or when it is very still outside.

I've fiddled with ways of hiding the work light, or working without it, but without strong side lighting the scene falls apart, and I've been at a loss on how to obscure it successfully.

I have done a little bit of photoshopping on your image - I hope you don't mind. I wanted to show what i mean by emphasizing the reflection and use it to your advantage.

First i filled the lamp reflection by using a bit of color from the brightest spot in there. Next i played around with lens flare filter in photoshop. This makes it look a bit like reflections of the sun. This is just one way of doing it. I hope it will inspire you - your idea and project are brilliant.

Of course I don't mind, and I totally see what you are saying. I hadn't even thought about trying to correct this in post-processing, mostly because it is my weakest area. But seeing it now, it really would be nice to have a better light source.
