My first attempt to create a realistic shadow effect on text, need suggestions to make it look more realistic.

Hey @Kaushik, great use of lighting, soft shadows and texture. The outer glow gives the text a great 3D perspective. As you created it in 3D, for added realism you could possible shift the perspective of the camera down slightly to reveal the extruded letters. It already appears realistic enough. Great first attempt!
Really nice background shadows and texture.
Hi @Balraj Chana I've not used 3D software for this, Its created using Photoshop, have used Blur effects for shadows and for text gradient and drop-shadows I've used. I don't want to change the perspective though, want the shadows and lighting to be more realistic. Its a first attempt, working to achieve more accurate result.
Thank you @Eric Greene :)
Ahh i see, it's realistic enough to pass off as 3D :) In that case you could possibly try adding light on the top of the background going about half way down. This is because you have light hitting the top of the letters but you can't see where the light is coming from. Light hitting the surface of the text will also affect the background. Great work though :)
Thanks @Balraj Chana, I'll try that out. Thanks for your feedback :-)
It looks good
Thank you @Anna Marinenko :)
Nice work with shadows chap! Can you make a more lighter version? sunlight or desk light may be?
@Rohit Mehta there are going to be various versions of it. /i'm planning to make a whole series of wallpapers. Oh so I broke the secret, this is a wallpaper i'm designing :P
