    Hmmm I don't know how to fix this, it's an unfortunate side-effect of not sculpting displacement on the object itself but rather cutting it up and then applying displacement.

    Any suggestions for making this better? I've got the basic elements I want (tank, farmhouse, fire), but I feel it could be presented with more drama.

    Well, if you are indeed looking for pointers:

    Lighting:
    More contrast, the fire seems to light both sides of the tank for some reason making it look flat. I'd suggest you remove that orange/red light you have in front of the tank to it's right completely, make the light at the farmhouse brighter and maybe use a "moon" light to light the tank from behind/-right (blue/white). This will "sandwich" the subject and give it more 3 dimensional depth.

    Materials:
    Farmhouse roof wood looks very uniform and shiney, I would expect a roof to be pretty dull seeing that the wood weathers more *and* dirt/dust/grime that collects on it will make it look rough.

    Damage:
    Even though the roof is on fire, no modelled damage is visible making it look fake. Some collapsing/sagging might improve.

    General Photography:
    Since this is a night shot and thus probably with a longer exposure, if the tank was moving the tracks would be blurry.

    Thanks for taking the time to make suggestions. I appreciate it. I'll work on all those things and try again.
