Everything looks great. As I study the image I do find myself wondering where the sun is located. On the far left of the temple there seems to be an area that is being lit brightly by the sun. If the object in the distance on the right above the horizon is the sun, then I am curious why surfaces are reflecting more light than the sun itself is radiating. It's also possible the sun is hidden behind the structure and the object to the right is actually the moon? But I'm pretty sure its supposed to be the sun. I think that considering the sun is in the shot then we should have made it brighter. The levels on the temple seem perfect so I dont think any changes should be made to those. We just need to better explain where the direct light is coming from.

Thank you Rashad. The sun is were you see it, the FOV is set to 120 and wide FOV always makes it difficult to understand the position of light and shadows. The sun is indeed dark. I had spent a considerable amount to make it appear brighter but I lost the gradient towards the horizon and finally kept it that way. Your remarks are valid.
