Fifth Element Layout/Lighting

I've decided to take this composition forward from last weel! Because this is an environment piece, I decided to move the worker farther back in space to make him smaller and thereby take up less screen real-estate. The elements were positioned on the page corresponding to "The golden Spiral". I think it's working out rather well! I quickly blocked things out in Maya and did some simple lighting! Although color isn't due this week, I subtlety toyed with the idea of having a complimentary windmill color scheme. (Cooler background, warmer orangey mid, and a cool foreground) my next step is to start adding local color, and texture to the piece. This next part is going to take some time!
