Hey everyone,

Here’s a somewhat complicated exterior render I’m working on. I know a few things could be fixed it post, (I.e. clouds and grass) but I just wanted to share this image to receive some feedback on how to get a more realistic result.

Please don’t hold back [wink]

This is not an easy type of image to do well, as you've acknowledged.  The difficulty is that at this distance it's easy to pick out where something is "under-modeled."

You're getting there... I think most of the elements on the facade are well done.  The roof is the most jarring thing to me... there just isn't quite enough detail.  There almost always needs to be some kind of edge detail where there are material transitionsthe roof wouldn't be mathematically flush like that, and those three dormer vents are too simplified to be realistic.

I think there would probably be a slight lip, as seen above, which gives you another cast shadow shadow and a bit more edge definition.

Here's an example of what a little more detail in the right places can do for a render: http://supodiumforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/exterior-house-render-8169507?pid=1301622948

For composition, use the reset tilt command, or switch to one of the orthographic cameras to square up the verticals.

Thank you very much, JSlick. Very appreciated. I’ll get back to work and see if I can’t hopefully achieve your suggestions.

Thx again!
