Offshore Oil Rig WIP

Here's an updated image of the offshore oil rig. This is my second render in C4D and I have learned a lot in the process. This image still needs a lot of work though.

1. D.O.F. Yes/No? Do you think it adds to the scene or takes away from it?

2. The ocean/scene looks flat which makes the oil rig appear like it's floating. Any ideas on how to fix this?

3. Oilrig - I plan to tone it down and change the color. I would like to make rust only on the bottom of the legs. Do you know how I can apply a shader to only part of an object?

4. The color of the helicopter body looks strange behind the door. Do you know what might be causing this?

5. Distant Light - I have used an "Omni light to light the helicopter. I wanted to use a "distant light" but it would not light the helicopter. I thought a distant light would be good for adding some light to the ocean and helicopter, but it did nothing to affect it do you know why? Could it be the distant light couldn't reach the water. Some setting?

Any other suggestions welcome!
