Well, it always just feels forced when I'm talking first-person present-tense about something the narrator has seen a lot, and I try to sneak in details.

I'd just like to point out that details CAN add life to a story, but it also can really kill it if there's too much (I'm looking at you, Tolkien.)

I like the detail that Tokien goes into when describing things. I think it is the structure of his books, such as the Silmarillion, which is was more detrimental to the story. Then again most of those books were compiled from his notes so the structure was never going to be fantastic.
