A few thoughts- the hotel bathroom shot should focus more on the bath itself with just a hint of the bedroom rather than not show most of the features. On the second shot, a kitchen simply looks weird in a shot with a big window but no sun. There is a softness of the light with sun that feels missing, and also might cut down on glare. A circular polarizer filter would also help reduce glare and hotspots. I would also reduce clutter on the counters and I always remove paper towel or any non-appliance.

Just a 4000 sq ft townhome. Although these were beautiful units, the entrances were way to close together for my taste.

Some of my favorites from shooting a historic home for an architect firm.

^^ Great set. What the hell did you do to get such a nice exposure on the first exterior image of the skyscraper building? Single exposure with sky replacement or different approach?

Thank you! That's the power of the Sony a7RII sensor. It's a single exposure in which I exposed for the highlights and then recovered the shadows. On a calm day (ie no movement in the trees), I would have used the Smooth Reflection app to gain even more dynamic range. One of the by products of the app is it lowers the noise threshold which allows you to underexpose you shot and recover even more detail in the shadows without incurring noise. It's like shooting ISO 25.

That's why I can't wait to get the a7riii for my canon glass!

Were you using a tilt-shift for those images?

No tilt-shift lens used although I do need to get one. For the exterior shots of the building I use an FLM ballhead with a tilt lock. This allows the camera to pivot up without movement side to side. This makes stitching vertical panos possible.

Just looked up the FLM ball head. What makes using that different from using, say a pan/tilt fluid head?
