Can I get a quick vote on my value structure?

Hello! I thought I'd take advantage of the poll feature after seeing Braden use it. I'm on the home stretch of this piece and am starting to refine things. Do you like it with the darker background or the lighter background? Thank you!

@TessaW In the lighter background I lose the floating girl in the dappled light coming through the trees.
@StudioLooong That's a good point, and something I would definitely have to tweak if I went with the lighter version. Thanks!

What if you darkened the light in B a little bit, maybe between A and B.
@deborah-Haagenson Thank you, I'll play around and try it out.
@TessaW i think a middle ground between both of them would be great

great image, nice concept and really beautifully drawn .
I would go for a lighter background (light and atmosphere influenced). The values tend to go a little into the midtones, blending with the foreground character and tend to jump a little ouf of the local value range, in some places might be simplified to strenghten the silhouletes. (did a rough paintover to see my idea. didnt know how much you want the foreground character to glow though.)

It depends on where you want your focal point to be. I would keep some light on both of them, so maybe the lighter background, but make sure either your background or your foreground girl is brighter than the other, to make one stand out
@Nyrryl-Cadiz Thanks for your input! I think you might be right, I will try it out.
@marek-halko Thank you for taking the time to do a paintover! I love the subtlety you introduced with all the lighting touches. I do love how the darkened book shelf makes the ghost stand out. I'm trying to convey the idea that the house shows up as it once was, when the moonlight hits it, which it why I made the book shelf so light, but it has been causing trouble with readability. Again thanks for your paintover, I'll definitely incorporate what I can.
@Melanie-Ortins Thank you! I'll keep my eye on that as I try to finish it up.
