I really like those weathered boards; the 'white parts' look about right to me.
I likewise think that, even if they happened to be intrinsically gray, the very
bright sunlight would *probably* make them look white instead, to our eyes.
Nicely done!

The slight area-light of the sunlight is another very nice and subtle touch...
not too much, not too little.

The noise-like look on the tar shingles is another nice detail. Is that from
using simple crand? Or does it come from the choice of texture colors and scale?
I would assume that antialiasing would mostly eliminate any crand, if used.
