no mean to be disrespectful to your efforts, but I think your characters stick out way too much compared to the background now. I mean, it looks like they are almost completly covered in shadow while the landscape is still half covered in light. I kinda liked your previous version more. (no offense)
While this does make the stage look cooler in screenshots and whatnot I've found that playing with this lighting isn't as cool and prefer to be able to see my character. That being said I know that there will be people who do prefer this so thanks for posting it.
