I brought down the skylight environment multiplier to 0.3 in the luma server... and it worked a bit.

I dont know if this is the correct way?

In real life the sunlight is much stronger than the environment, that's why you see only one shadow, but it's correct to see more than one if you set the environment with the same intensity as the sun. If you want a more photo realistic effect, set the sun/environment intensity ratio as in real life. This will cause overexposed areas. Save the image as an HDR or EXR file format and edit it in photoshop or any other HDR software to fix the overexposed areas.

Btw, afik the sun hasn't changed. Now you are just able to see where it's pointing so you can setup photons, etc. more efficiently.

Am I missing any other changes?

I assume you have a HDR image where there's a sun...this will cause a second shadow.  You either have to edit the image in photoshop, or put the real sun light in the same location as the HDR one.

She attached an image. There only seems to be one parallel shadow, so I assume she means the darkness around the object caused by the environment.

Ahhh...sorry....I missed the image.  Yes - your answer is better Vicente.

Thanks

All is fine now with the physical sky...
