nice one, like the architectura aproach to the concept.

Teturing, It might change as I look at lighting.

Lighting Final ?
There is something...awkward about your image. I cant quite put my finger on it, but if I were 2 choose something, I would say that your image has no 'focus'. I think that main reason is that it looks like you completely skipped over the concept art part.
Concept are isnt just for show-it is an ESSENTIAL part of art. Not just 3d art, but ALL art. Architects, painters, fine artists, fabric designers, industrial designers-they ALL do concept art before even looking at a computer or canvas.
I think that its hard 2 tell what is going on in your image. You have some rather nice looking forms which are easily distinguishable in your 'white renders', but your textures are a bit 2...confusing and make the 3d models merge in2 each other.
As i said tho-go back 2 ur original concept, and try 2 give your image a focal point, because your eye jumps around this image very 'hap-hazardly'.
Otherwise, GOOD LUCK!!

If you want honest critique, then I'd have to say that... although the shapes are fairly interesting they lack a 'focal' point as already suggested but also they seem haphazard and unrelated to each other. This looks like a 'constructed' environment, and even though you are going in an abstract and random direction, I think that even an abstract image needs some sort of structure or unity. Whether that be a repetition of a similar abstract shape, or scale, movement or any number of design elements I think you really need something to tie this all together.
This leads me onto colours and texture. Once again I don't see anything that is going to unify the image and tie everything together into an aesthetically pleasing composition. I hope that helps.

Thanks Pyke & Ian for the critique. I do appreciate all C&C.
I understand about the lack of focal point. I was thinking that the next step I could bring them all together. As I turn objects on and off, I might be wrong. I will take a few steps back and regroup my thoughts. After reading what the two of you have to say, I will look at the original concept and/or texture and grouping.
