Find your Camera object in the Object Manager. There's a little square icon with a dot in it. Click that until it's white. Same result if you are in your Perspective view, Cameras, Scene Camera then select your new camera.


Perfect! Thank you so much

Can you please add a light somewhere to set the base lighting. One omni somewhere will do, give it a nightly color like dark blue. A little experimentation will not kill anybody.

I have an infinite light for the base lighting. I also have a large spot light on the main building. Reason for this is because I don't want the main building and the surrounding buildings in the same level of brightness...

I'll swap the infinite for a onmi and see how it works out.

I think you have to calibrate your screen, I opened your image in psd and there is actually a lot going on there, buildings, a bridge, houses, streets... Pity there is not enough light.

Yep, the screen I'm using is quite poor. Just opened a render on my Macbook Pro and it's way too dark. I'm increasing the light by 30% or so. Just proves you get what you pay for in terms of screen quality. (it's a cheap TN panel, samsung)
