Default Mayan Stairway to heaven

Hey guys,im in for this contest. I just got back from palenque chiapas, went to the acheologic site there. Im gonna do something related with mayan culture. In the site there was a group of edifications called "the escondido group" which means the hidden group, this place was called the stairway to heaven by mayan civilizaton. the edifications are built on plataforms,each platform being a stair belonging to this big stairway leading to the gods. Stairways leading to the different platforms and this group of platforms leading to heaven,thats what my wip is about in few words. Hope u like it.

It's looking good, but I can't really tell where stairs are.

Update. Im still working on some lighting issues, im gonna add another small stairway on the right corner,where the platform is.Also im gonna move a lil bit that white house in the back...it doesnt make much sense it being in front of the stairway.Im thinking of adding a couple of characters,maybe a bit of rain too.

Looks good. Two things though, the lighting could look more contrasty in the main foreground buildings and the left stairway has duplicate textures on the 45 degree side bits [sorry i'm not sure of the architectural description ] Perhaps flip the uv's vertically or something.

Cheers,
Chris
