    no I think it looks really nice. although, the ledge on the left side of the pic is a bit distracting to me, but i understand why it's there

    beautiful shot though
     
  4. I used whatever light available, since I was only using my XT and Sigma 10-20... a little pp can go a long way :)

    I think it looks great. Post original for comparison?

    Very pretty shot. HDR I assume??
     
  8. It was for a new apartment built downtown in Sioux Falls, SD

    The image is from a single RAW...

    i think its nice in its color but for selling an apartment it may not be exactly what you want because it seems to make the room small...

    Not too bad, but a couple things i would have done differently if it were me shooting. Of course these are just my opinion, so take them however you'd like:

    Turned down the light that is off to the right, to create a better ratio to the other sources, and if possible, soften the light more.

    Fix the perspective (this is pretty much an absolute if you're trying to sell architecture/design)

    Shoot another exposure for just the outdoors w/ the lights off to get rid of reflections in the window, especially the really big light source.

    Again, just an opinon. The PP looks pretty good though, and i know that was what your post was actually about :)
     
  12. I was using my Sigma 10-20, next time I hope to use my friend's 580EX II...

    Is it possible to take a photo at a different exposure, to retain the windows? And then combined them into the final photo? I'm not really good at HDR...

    shoot the one for the outside without bumping the camera, put it as another layer in pshop, mask it and keep just the visible glass for the windows.

    yeah, it's called bracketing. Or, you could take two photos, exposed for different things and layer them in photoshop and erase the parts you don't want.

    Yes, Shoot the room as you would, then turn off all the lights inside the room and shoot it again. If you want/need to make a change to exposure to make the outside look brighter/darker, than change your shutter speed (shutter speed only and not aperture).

    Then in photoshop, paste the second shot over the first one as a layer, Then mask off everything except for the windows. Then if you want, play w/ the opacity of that layer so that you can bring the reflections back in a tiny bit, to possibly give a more realistic look.

    then TADA.
