some of you guys may remember this from way back. I started this project back in 2008 but it got to big for the computer I had at the time and then life got in the way so it was put to one side for some years. anyway I wanted to get back on this project so here I am again :)
I still have a lot to do here and some times think Im never going to see the end of it :)

Crits/feedback welcome good or bad :)

Looks good. It would be nice to see more variation on the brick wall. Also the light coming in from the left could use a shadow map to simulate something outside (trees, fence). Small detail but I think it would be fitting.

The glass at the bottom right corner does not look so hot. Floors are too clean and consistent. I'd add some material stress to them.

Balcony areas do not not look right. I'd suspect they would require more support to the walls in some way (I'm not an architect though). - This looks like a door just floating in space.

Good reflections on metal, but I'd add more stress to the materials. Maybe some anisotropic reflections.

Rail height seems too short. OSHA would probably be up your ass. ;)

Just a few things. Good base to work from though. Looks nice.

Are you using a lot of GI in this? I feel that the lower pits in this image could be a bit darker to add more contrast too.

Looks a bit too neat overall, too repetitive, more dirt/grunge/dust etc...needs a silhouette of a floating pig in the top windows too. :)

Agreed with some of the above points but it is looking really good, i love this kind of thing.. I think something like this would be more suited to video rather than stills - a treatment something similar to Alex Romans famous The Third & The Seventh would really sell it IE more of a series of cuts between abstracts, closeups, etc exploring the geometry and lighting of the environment ( )..
