Very nice framing and composition!!

Thank you!  I actually spent more time on making this set than on any other I've built, except for Sheepsbridge.  Which is to say that I paid attention to what goes where in the landscape, and hence in the frame.  So it is especially nice if you think it worked.

Yeah it looks like very natural environment! You might try using blue lighting for the sky , with a white yellow point light for the sun, but, I don't know technical limits, I've never done 3D :) a lot of renders only use the white light for the sun, which causes shadows to look a little too dark when they should have a blue cast to them.

That is an interesting observation on sunlight and shadows!  I'll keep that in mind with outdoor scenes.  I usually have a "distant light" that emulates sunlight (yellow tint, shadow intensity dialed down to allow for indirect light), and an environment or ambient light to increase luminosity in the areas shaded by objects in the scene.  But the blue tint for shadows is a great idea I'll be trying out.

The dominant color in this image was supposed to be green, like the next in the series is red, the first white, and the final one blue.
