Your context should fill the page. If it doesn’t or you can’t fill your page, fade it out. The closer things are to your object of focus, the more detail your context should have. Being further away means that there is less detail you need to have and can save you time. Simplify the mass of the buildings to prevent focusing on your context and put more focus on your architecture. Don’t draw windows etc. of other buildings unless you have a specific reason to.
