You are so close on this one!! Just add a space in the .title style and .main-heading from the style elemnt and the values. and your good to go:

  text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;
  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;

Hi Venkatesh,

You just need to remove the "px" value from the 0 for the blur radius. The challenge tells you to set this to 0 without any units.

  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;

thank you Marcus Parsons.

please help me in the next question too.

What do you have for it so far?
