I've gone ahead and assigned a Linear Burn to the Statue layer, and notice that even though I've got an ultra-dark version of the layer going on, I still have a nice bright outer glow, and that is because blend modes that are assigned to layers have no effect on outer functions, like the Outer Glow effect or a drop shadow, which extend outside the boundaries of the layer. So you can have nice bright glows mixed with ultra-dark interiors such as we have here. Now in our case, I think the ultra-dark interior is way the heck too dark. I'm ending up with a whole lot of clipped shadows, and I'd like to temper the effect. So my natural reaction of course would be to reduce the Opacity value.
