sunny light?

i am trying to make a scene of a sunny outdoor neighborhood but i can’t get it to look like sun ligfht it looks more like moon light or something,
i am just wondering how everyone gets there lighting so nice?

For a start, try a bright sun lamp with a touch of yellow, and some soft blue Ambient Occlusion.

That’s just a beginners setup, but it’ll get you started and save you from mucking about with multi-lamp setups and buffer lights

here is a BSOD tutorial for sunny lighting http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/BSoD/Introduction_to_Lighting/Exercises#Sunny
