The buildings are rearranged from Urban Future 4 by Stonemason, the shuttle trains were downloaded from the Google Warehouse. Rendered with a weak sun and soft shadows. The White Sphere HDRI brightens up the shadows and is also blended with the sky. The aim was to make this a unspectacular boring city district.
I would say you achieved your aim - so this just goes to show how much more interesting it is when you add 3D anaglyph effect?

Thank you. In fact, I started with this having a somehow run-down district in mind which would look much friendlier in bright light. It reminds me a bit of London riding the DLR (dockland light railway) you pass through districts that had seen better times. But then, yes, the anaglyph makes it a bit more interesting. I was particularly surprised how far down the floor is and that the railway is on a bridge (like at right).

This image is quite fascinating. I love the way everything is lit visibly. It has a cool cartoon sort of appeal due to the roundness of the models. Nice and simple. The dirty textures look excellent under this lighting.
