Quick question here on deliverables, what is everyones time frame from the moment you receive selects from the client?

Mine are typically a week. I think that’s reasonable given how much editing I do to my images.

Depends on the number of images, for me its not RE work so there is more editing and more images typically. 1 to 2 weeks...moslty because its my 2nd job not my primary day job.

I posted this over in the Critique Corner with some of my own thoughts on the photo, but I thought I'd post it here as well to get any suggestions you all may have. What would you have done differently?

Tough shot, looks like a small room.

Why ISO 1600? It looks like some NR has been done and then sharpened to compensate...I could be wrong...

I might let the windows go a little brighter in this case, since the outside is gray and overcast and not all that interesting.

There is a bit of a blue cast on the arm of the chair and a dark area in the lamp shade on the left of the frame.

No, your buildings should line up with the Side of your frame.

Not for a building this tall.
If the verticals were parallel with the edges of the frame viewers will think something is wrong. It makes the building look like its bigger at the top than at the bottom.

For a one or two story building parallel verticals are important, for sky scrapers there has to be some perspective toward a vanishing point high in the sky. The second version with less obvious tilt is probably better but don't make them edge parallel.

I find it interesting that that information was brought in here. This was actually a composite of 3 shots. +3ev (1/100), 0ev (1/800), -2.3ev (1/4000). In the past when I've uploaded HDR shots, it has eliminated the data. In this case, I thought I needed to use HDR processing to balance the interior with the exterior. To prevent the shutter from being too slow on the brightest shot, I used a higher ISO.

After your comment though, I went back and played with just the middle exposure and found I could achieve very similar results just using the single exposure. I guess I didn't need to use HDR for this photo. It really is incredible how much data is contained in the RAW files of modern cameras.

I've included all 3 images that merged for the first HDR shot and also a quick second edit using just the middle exposure. Using the single exposure also seems to blend the cool window light with the warmer interior light more naturally.

I would have moved the booze/tray. Maybe just left the glasses. Also (if there were net curtains ) I probably would have pulled them to hide the rather ugly view. Doing that may well have made more of the mirror which is a plus feature.

And 5 minutes with a steam iron would have improved the look of the bedspread/sheets/pillo​w cases.

Hard shot cramped conditions. I would of left out the small bottles and made the conter space a clear as possible. More clutter makes things look smaller and cramped.

The mirror helps create an illusion of more space, taking the clutter and the chair out of the reflection would help it look even larger.

Nice job on the lighting.

Either the glass in the mirror is very old/distressed or a Lightroom brush has been used with automask and it has left speccles.

Thanks all, some good suggestions here. I hadn't thought of moving the bar tray. I took this photo right after walking into the room without changing anything.

Yes, it's a distressed look. It actually looks nice in the room, but I haven't seen any photos of these rooms that make it look good. I'm guessing it will also look dated in a couple years.
