I'm editing a corporate piece and have the below CGI image to include

Can anyone give me some ideas on how to add a sense of motion/3D space/movement etc.. basically anything to make it stand out and be more creative.

If time is no concern, I would create different plates for:
. the sky
. the birds
. the building (foreground and background)
. people
. the ground

Then create a vitual 3D space.
I'd animate the sky and the birds (even incorporate some real birds)
Make a 3D camera move to give some depth
Add some light flares, or even recreate the lighting with some light changing slightly direction
If you have a high resolution pictures, you could also break it down into different shots to cut a montage... if you have a story;-)

Good luck,

It would be much less work intensive if you could get the layered image from the architect. They usually add the people and sky later, so the building should be on a separate layer. This way it will be much easier to build a 3d projection or an actual 3d space. For the latter, you can take the layers in Photoshop, cut the planes, distort them and rebuild the perspective with 3d layers in AE.
