Comments and critique are very welcome.

17:15 hours to render @ 1,600 Samples, CPU

Cycles may not be the fastest render engine, but it does a pretty nice job.

[It is apparently unbiased too, there are many settings to speed things up,
but these generally seem to introduce bias, trading speed for accuracy.]

Check out the nice bounce lighting at the base of the potted plants.

Also I think the lighting on the left of the garden umbrella is quite nice.

[The 'bloom' on the pool lights and shrubbery was added in post.]
