First off, this piece has a great atmosphere!
The surrounding natural enviroment also looks spot on.

but the constuction of the mansion.. is somewhat dissapointing.
you have used alot of diffrent model sets to create the mansion,
and in this situation i think they dont really blend together well.

EDIT:
While writting this I noticed this all seems very nitpicky, but meh.. its my opinion.


The ogre_ arch foundation really clashes with the lime and plastered house.
and the lime clashes with the plastered walls on the lower floors.
The lime Arches look really oversized compare to the cobble and lime walls

Further more the lime walls looks really compressed (on the upper floors).
i think you should increase their size, at the least increase the Z.
the upperfloor window goes straight through a crossbeam.

The wooden pillars from tavalaj really look like they arent capable of supporting
the weight of all those lime arches and stones. i'dd suggest rotating a roofbeam (-1.00)
and use that instead.

and finaly the scaling of the square tower seems small and impractical. looks like
there is only room for a straight ladder up.

I find that surprisingly critical, and I don't agree at all. I'm sorry, I like my mansion.

Details.

Of course it does, it's further into the background than the rest of the mansion.
Everything is to scale, I made sure of that as I built the mansion in a 3D way,
like I nearly always do with structures.

Let me show you:

I think this is your best work tbh. At least from my awful memory.

I really like it. A lot.
