Looking at the interior shots I think cooler is better, but for me I think perspective distortion spoils them more as in the horizontal lines of ceiling and beds.
If your going into real estate photography look into panarama heads for tripods then you can stitch the shots together instead of using such a wide angle.

you're right paul.

the warmer tones was a result of the white balance being off because of the led light i added.

i'll try tomorrow without the led light.

for panorama though, i think it's better to use a slider(the one used by film makers) than to pan. i think it's better for stitching.

All the interior photo talk made me want to try it out:

Did this in about 15 mins total with photos and stitching

5 vertical photos stitched

6D + 35mm f/2

The tripod heads I'm thinking of are made for doing photo stitching, it's all to with setting up the axis that the camera moves on so that the photos are all relative to each other.
I am crap at explaining so google will be your friend here, it's sort of complicated but not. Have a look at these to see what I'm on about, it's a bit different to a film shooting one.

I have to show you this, it's a blog piece by my business partner she is into science photography and has the most amazing talent. We are in the process of setting up a studio together for the early part of the year ;)
Stro you will love this as I think you will get what the images are about, also the macro is incredible. Enjoy everyone ;)

the stitch really resulted to a less or no distortion image.

have you seen the blown out wall near the lamp shade? and the different white balance? that's why i used HDR. my white balance being messed up was the result of the LED light i added. should have not use that. because of it, i was force to warm up everything. it hard to fix a bad white balance. maybe i have to shoot gray card for a custom white balance.

i will try again today but address more on distortion. either go with stitching or find the best angle using the 14mm.

I think I showed you this one before. It was handheld, sort of like No. 2 scene I shot with the 8-16...

You get perspective distortions at the edges (the verticals is my handheld fault), perspective uncorrected. You can't expect to have elements of your photo 20 ft away (headboard) and others 2 ft away (chair) and expect the lens to solve your perspective problems!

Pssst! Vinz... If you need help dealing with a yellow color cast, I know a guy! He's really got an eye for this stuff and I think you'll find him to be more than willing to help out, if you know what I mean. Wink wink, nudge nudge. ;)

I'd think that most of the distortion seen in these interior shots, mostly visible near the right and left borders, could be fixed up readily in post. The perspective is off a bit but the vertical lines are straight. But what seems most impressive to me is the lack of barrel distortion, which would be much harder to deal with. :cool:
