Here I darkened the shadows of the buildings and staircase on the left creating a darker gradient on the buildings; I also added rocks and grass to the foreground. More details to the windows, fence, and bricks. Lastly I added more shadows around the AC unit in the center of the image. I attempted to make it appear to line up with the buildings perspective.

I then produced this image to help with referencing proportion and scale. In this image, I compressed/shrunk the previous image slightly, changing different aspects.
