I would elevate your SSAO range, and decrease its intensity a bit to get a little more "shadowing" across large planes.  Also, i would add a little fresnel to the wall materials and introduce a small bump map.  You will then be able to adjust the way the wall appears much more then with only a color applied.  A little more contrast with the wood material on the small chairs and bookshelves in the enclosed space, maybe add a little reflection.

Overall i love the feel.  A couple of small changes and it will really be singing a song.  Strong work!

Thanks Brian.

BTW, This is not for any competitions! Have no time for any fun stuff right now so this is down and dirty, crank it out stuff.

I will see if i can tweak a bit more and look into your suggestions. i would like to spend more time on materials and bump maps. I also feel i need to get the overall contrast a bit more settled before a final render.

How did you add lighting?  The lighting looks great!

If you make a material emissive...then adjust bloom and streaks in the weather settings. 

edit:
To clarify....select standard material, then there will be an emissive slider on the bottom right of the material editor...slide it up.  It takes some playing with depending on how much bloom is in a scene.

Thanks again Brian. That is how the "material" lighting, or emmisive material works, but of course, it is not really casting any light at all... the material is just glowing.

I added some effects to the movie clips to enhance the sunlight coming in through the huge glass area. I tried to keep it subtle. I have "God rays" and "Lens Flare" applied on the 3rd clip only.

I still need to adjust materials to try for better overall lighting and contrast.

Thanks for the comments.
