Detailed information/workflow about the image

Since I haven't visited or experience all 3 buildings, try to make it realistic is pretty stupid. So my concept for the render is to make something completely different from the reality, and stunning to look at for even non-architecture people. It just to need to capture the feeling and the eyes, does not need to capture the truth.

My workflow start with finding references images, and images that inspired me. After that, sketching different composition. Then start setting up camera and lighting. I work on all 3 files at the same time to see if any can inspire the other, and if I get stuck on one I can work on the other. After I get a render then bring it into photoshop to test. At this point just going back and forth between rendering and photoshop.

I use Pureref for references images, Blender for render and Photoshop for final compositing.
