Thanks for the comments!  I didn't have any real-world shutters and doors to
model the colors, so it isn't surprising they stick out.  I could revert to my
earlier comments about a fantasy world scene, so the colors are more intense,
but I could certainly see dulling them to make it look more medieval instead.

I am working on a new project with bricks around a lighthouse (cone).  I'll look
into the blockwall macros for that as well.  I have had issues getting access to
the POV-Object collection after the server crash.
