Larch tree=DandelO; other trees=X-Frog; tower=3DHaupt; man=xoio 3D people.   

About a 13 hour render.....old computer, not much memory.  :-)  Appreciate your looking.

v3 clouds? I've had the monster render times issue once or twice. Replaced them with v2 and dropped 8hrs off render time.

Nice scene Lyla, maybe a bit of a scale problem; he looks near as tall as the trees. I'd move him next to a smaller tree and scale him and then re-position if you're into another loooong render.

The scene is nicely laid out but I have to agree with Bobby, there are some squirrelly scale issues here. I would scale down the figure as well as the trees on the mountain to the left. They look way too big.

The clouds...one layer is V2.  I hate how long clouds take to render. 

The scale of things.  Probably,.... if I redo, I will make the man smaller.  Not sure about the trees though.  Thanks to all for the comments.

13h? Oh wow!

What if you just deactivate clouds for experimenting with the other changes?

Very nice scene and beautiful lake!
If you have the patience to play around with the project (and while doing this switching off the clouds) you can surely easier improve some things.

Just 2 ideas /suggestions from me:
A layer with little fakestones and a layer with darker color at the hight of the water.
If you make the man smaller, don't forget to resize the tower too ;)

Good luck :)
