I am somewhat new to rendering, and especially rendering in 2009 for that matter.  Can I get some critique on this rendering and maybe find out what quick settings I can tweek to get a better look?  Thank you!

putting in a lighting flash and an photoshop overlay with rain would make it look better :p

just kidding,

set the sky to lichtblue? maybe that will reflect on your model , dont have any experience with 2009

and i gues your windows are mirrors?

it kinda looks like you just used the front wall to render and the terrein just continues behind your walls,

Get more dramatic shadows by moving the light source (or add a second one). Experiment with intensity and location, try a subtle light above and behind the building, it might add some dimension by separating it from the background too. 

And also add some entourage elements and vegetation, that gives life to your rendering.

Avoid doing elevation view angles, because they tend to look flat, try some camera views at pedestrian eye level, look at the building at an angle, etc.., that adds a little bit realism, although you might need a few views to show the entire building.

I agree with psemrau inregards to changing the sun location and adding entourage (cars, trees and people for scale.

Have a play with the exposure so you dont get a washed out image.

Also, have a look at refining the textures you are using. Make sure they ar 100% tileable.

 

If all else fails, hand ball the model to your viz guy for him to export into Max or Maya.  But you should be able to get something decent out of Revit.

You might find this useful...

I go this a while back from Revit3D blog site. You have to sign up to his site as a member and I hope it's ok to share this info in this way.. password for PDF file is    earthhour

Just so I don't get into trouble please take a look at this great Revit blog site http://bimboom.blogspot.com/

There is nothing to say this file can't be shared that I can see - but anyone can sign up on the site for free and download it anyway.

Anyway it explains all about the Mental Ray settings etc...
