    For abandoned towers, these look pretty newly built, without any dirt or weathering like you see in the images below:



    I'm not an expert on exterior day lighting but something feels off about the lighting and backplate, they don't match. I think the contrast is too high, the dark side of the towers is too black, shouldn't there be bounced light hitting the shadow sides? You've got a strong directional light source but the sky is pretty cloudy.

    Yes, the lighting is off. The image has low contrast, also giving it a little colour tint in postproduction would help if if you want to create overcast atmosphere.

    You can also edit the leaves textures to some more grim colour than saturated green if this is an industrial atmosphere. And give it a little more viariety, you can randomly map leaves and use some texture variations so it will not be a block of unified colour.

    Also the camera position is somewhat random, it's not at the human's eye level. Maybe placing it even lower and giving some vertical perspective would give better effect, to show the scale of the construction.
