I wish that you had a fly through, because there are some shadow inconsistencies that I just can't track down with the different shots. Did you move your lights around for each render? In some of the renders, the shadows will stretch X feet in one direction, and then, just 20-30 feet away have little to no angle at all. But on those birds-eye shots, it's not noticeable.
It could just be me!

thanks for the comments:
mim: i rendered it all in one PC, and its not that powerfull either (well, 2GB RAM...).
Images of about 2000x1400 pixels rendered in about an hour. The trick is to model with the least amount of polygons and render ONLY what you are seeing in that scene, everything else is turned off.
Everything should be well organized in groups, so you can turn off the heavy objects, otherwise it is almost impossible to work. Beside the trees, the black lines on the floor where also very heavy, i couldnīt come up with another way of doing it besides importing the whole pattern as a poly from autocad and extruding it in max.
lighting is quite simple... a vray dome for a nice uniform light, and a standard direct target with vray shadows.
i guess its just you... the sun has not been moved in any scene, so all shadows must be casted equally. Maybe later i could post a bigger image so you can see it better.
thanks for the comment anyway.
