These are all good points, Psyxiatros. I was wondering why the scene looked a little odd.

a couple of things i noticed First of all the modeling and texturing of the main building. You would surprise me if your composition was inspired by a real world photo, but anyway it's really hard to construct a building just by pilling bricks round and round. So the corner of the building with the bricks looks somewhat fake. Add a concrete pillar at the corner just like the one behind no 3. Right now the brick texture seems like a wallpaper wrapped around a wall. Take a look at brickworks on corners in real constructions and you will see how they re placed so your render will look more realistic. Another thing is the total absense of props. Put something there. A trash bin, a bicycle. Your scene doesnt look just empty, its also disturbingly clean. Its a public corner. reduce the spec maps, add some dirt and a bump with dirty water. Keep up the good work.
