Are you sure you want to delete this?

Thank you for your quick answer. Much appreciated. Yes I can confirm you the trend in CG nowadays is to mimic a physically-based environment for our rendering.

There is an interesting interview in the asc mag about the Lion King »where Rob Legato uses this expression : "it might be mathematically correct to place the sun where it would actually be, but it’s not artistically correct."

I found this to be particularly true. In CG we care a lot (too much?) about physically correct. We do not hear "artistically correct" very often on the floor.

I have made two quick renders with :

1- an "HDRI only" makes generally our renders look flat. 

2- an HDRI +Top Light help to give back some shape in a natural way.
