It's for a commercial campaign for a long-term rental hotel, which includes all of the furnishings ;)

Real estate, I'd probably shoot it wider with the 5d and 17 to get the whole room and focus less on the furniture.

I might as well add some shots to the mix.

"The Aperture Center" by Antoine Predock/Jon Anderson here in Albuquerque.

Nice photos Architective- I like the first the best.
Here is another photo from the same bathroom I last posted, do you guys think this one is any better? I'm really struggling with this, something just doesn't seem right or do you think this photo will fly?
Thanks in advance for any input!

It feels to me like it's just too close in, you don't have the whole cabinet in the frame, and the cabinet is not so interesting. If it were me, I'd leave it out of the final pile..

Here's what I do on bathrooms if they're too small for an effective comp - do detail shots with shallow depth of field - my clients seem to love this, and it still conveys the feel of the bathroom.

Thanks, yeah I'd agree, something's just not too interesting to me either, unfortunately it's a really small bathroom and this was taken halfway in the door frame.. I don't know of any other way to focus on a particular detail and still capture the bathroom. Oh well..

Looking for some opinions on these two shots, I'm not sure what to submit. One of them is flash and ambient only, the other is an HDR/Flash blend in which I took the flash exposure and layered it on top of the HDR blend in color mode.

Flash only:

Second one for sure. Clone off the freezer portion/pictures/magne​ts maybe?

Definitely the second! It seems to have even more "pop" than the flash/ambient alone, not to mention better shadow details without being overdone at all

Only thing I just noticed in the second is that outside the window seems to be more blown out in the second than in the first image

Agreed, second shot, although if it's not impossible I'd like to see the window be a bit darker like in the first one.

Thanks guys. I let the window go a little further than usual on that one because I didn't want the house directly behind to be as noticeable. I'll tone it down and see how it looks.

Here's another kitchen view, with a similar technique.

Light in shoot through umbrella CR
Ditto camera left
another light shot onto the dining room table about 20 feet to my 10 o'clock in another exposure and blended in post

probably the hardest shot ive ever done...why? because the homeowner was talking my head off right next to me the whole time, lol. i didn't move anything, it was perfect to her, so alas, here we are.
