Lighting takes for-officially-EVER. I blame it on my hideous rendering abilities. If I knew more about it I might be able to speed it up somehow. In any case, this shot finally made it to the finish line. It hasn't quite crossed that threshold because Jed still needs to approve and the buildings in the background are still having issues, but heck! I wanted to post.
And for general entertainment purposes, and to feel good about how far I've come in lighting knowledge: this is how it USED to look.
