Here is some standard UK housing I modelled in SketchUp and then rendered.

It was rendered using HDRi Sky, on exterior high. I then used Photoshop on the RAW image to add the grass, blur and more contrast etc.

The plants, trees, and cars are all from the Podium Browser.

Detail on the model is fantastic- as usual [wink]

I think you have overdone the blur in PS though, and personally I think it would be better with 2pp.

I would also have added a bit of variation between the semis. Maybe a window slightly ajar and some curtains inside.

Your glass looks a bit too reflective though. What are your settings? I use a charcoal colour with D0/T90/R10. Sometimes I add a texture with grey perlin noise at a large scale and add bump of 0.5 which gives you the not quite flat effect you see with glass.

Fabulous render though!

The arrangement of the plants are fantastic.  I've been working on a Better Homes and Garden model
( using suggests from this gardening magazine.
But I could have saved myself a lot of trouble if I looked at your model.
