Arranged and rendered in Vue Infinite. 1st real try with the new program. When I get PS back I'll probably revisit it.

12 hours all up in Vue.
Postwork: Slight level adjustment, but otherwise nothing at all.

Interesting and unexpected mix of elements. I like the foreground rocks, but I don't like those ferns too much, I think they look a bit fake.
I think the water has a bit too much foam for such a calm lake. I mean, normally foam is associated with waves but you have none. So, there seems to be a bit of inconsistency there.
I would also say that the shadows seem a bit too dark. It seems a bright sunny day so it would be normal to have lighter shadows.
The mountain would benefit from some more material variety, I would imagine. Maybe a different material for flat areas and slopes.
Regarding composition, this is a personal thing but if this was made by me I would have placed the taller building more to the inside and not so close to the border. There's also a second reason for that: the tall building is slight tilted to the right because of the camera focal length. If it were farther away from the corner, this wouldn't be so notorious.

First of all thank you for putting so much thought into this :)
I'd just like to say that this was kind of a first test render with no post processsing since I had nothing to do it with at that time. There are alot of things I don't like with this and you pointed most of them out hehe :)

As for the water it is a cove, connected to the ocean. there is one near here where the water does look like this from time to time, the water becomes agitated on the shoreline.

One of these days I need to redo it. Thanks for the critique it's given me idea on how to improve it when I get around to re-rendering it :hug:
