I find, indeed, that the city background has a really good-matching hue with your sun/sky system! Very nice! :D

Darn thats nice! You are going to re-render this with a higher resolution right? Its an awesome shot.

Thanks guys :D
Yeah I'm going to re-render it with a higher resolution. But first I've gotta add a few 'home touches' like cushions, magazines, jacket hanging off couch and a cutout of a sexy lady on the balcony :lol:

For those interested the house is based off this image that I scanned from an architectural magazine:
The real house is somewhere in San Jose I think. Took my breath away as soon as I saw it.

I'll post up the finished result soon.

Thanks for the help guys 8)

I would suggest to calculate the scene with the textured background plane(to have reflections), then hide it and calculate the alpha map, to composite it afterwards in toshop.
