actual version, render cycles Blender 2.71
small postproduction in PS
Oh dang. This is nice. I don’t know about the bottom right half of the image being so dark. It does divide up the screen pretty nice, but I don’t know. I feel that I want to see that area better.
Looks great. realistic apart from the trees on the left embankment might need some attention. Nice work tho and good improvement in your second version.
Love post production, but this scene needs more detail. Especially bump or displace on bricks, displace on water. Also try hair grass and trees form sapling generator.
