No lens distortion correction. Using cs5.

Here's some bracket shots. My transitions are terrible. I do them by hand (couldn't find an autoblend type feature)

First, I think all of the images you have posted are nicely composed. I do think you should try to lay off the wide end of that lens a bit. UWA tend to distort and also make rooms look bigger than they are. You don't always have to show as much of a room as possible.

Confining my comments to #3 now as they can be extended to the others also.

First, the window pulls don't need to be so dark. In fact, even though that's how we see them when we are there, making the windows balance too much with the room tends to harm the illusion of depth in a photograph. Remember that a photograph is a 2D image while real life is seen in 3D. The window looks more like an art piece hanging on the wall.

Second, the highlight on the bedspread is lighter than the outside view! This is an unnatural look that a viewer can easily spot. Again the window pull is too strong - or bring that bedspread down.

Third, masking on the window is uneven and obvious. The darkened muntins in the windows are a particular problem. If you are going to blend by hand, learn all the different selection tools and masking techniques so you can blend seamlessly.

CS5 definitely has lens corrections, I believe that was the version in which the feature for automatic lens corrections was introduced, and the lens correction filter itself was introduced in CS2. There should be a lens tab in your ACR dialog when you open RAW files, additionally, there is a filter called lens correction once in the main PS window.

these look kind of odd because your window is perfectly exposed yet there is an area on the bed that is blown out. Also the reflection on the floor in the second wouldnt look like that if that view was perfectly exposed like it is.

thanks and no flash but I'm going to start working on it and trying since I have an off camera flash to play with.

Yeah.. That city is pretty much full of those homes. "standard, cookie cutter split levels.. Nothing else really.
I moved north into a much nicer area so looking forward to better homes.


I certainly understand that. If you want more interesting images for your portfolio or something, you should seek out interesting spaces, as they won't be coming to you.

I get that you may be limited by your locale, but every area has charming buildings and spaces, and you need to be persuasive to access them.

Here are some favorites of mine from this edit so far... sky swap on the first photo & edited from one exposure, the second one was two photos stitched together and edited using two ambient exposures... II just miss the look the speed lights add, third was edited with flash and ambient... I actually have a comparison with that photo... hand blended vs software... I need to edit the software blend to compare fairly... but I'll post that when I do...

This is a well exposed shot of a wonderful hotel. Most clients do prefer photos from the floor rather than a balcony. As far as a portfolio photo, its critical to remove distractions like the velvet ropes to show its a commissioned work.

This are well composed shots of a sharp property, but the exposure curve seems way off from normal. It makes the first photo look like a painting. That could work for a commercial client, but usually not for a real estate client.

Thank you. You missed the bucket in the fountain. ;)

We received permission from the gal at the counter to shoot for and then the head of security kicked us out.

I inadvertently "liked" this post. Apologies for the confusion. :)

Wow looks great! Love the composition, and the interior is excellently balanced with the ambient and your light painting.

This is great as is, but if you want to make it even better, I have a few suggestions.

The light on the garage is a bit bright, I really dig the light painting, but the garage is over-emphasized here, it pulls my eye away from the interior.

This sky is a bit less than inspiring, so consider swapping it for something more clear with sunset-y colors.

The light painting on the lawn looks great as well, however this looks like pretty fresh sod, but with some brown grass. The seams don't look so hot.

If this is a real estate picture, I'd say get rid of all light painting on the lawn, but cloning out the seams would be a bit less than ethical. If it's for your portfolio or the architect/home builder/etc, get rid of the seams and fix the dead grass.

Thanks so much for the comments - I didn't even realize the grass and I will fix it for my portfolio. I normally do sky replacements, but I wanted to try a more natural looking sky this time. I will consider doing a sky replacement and see how that looks. As for the garage, I think you have a point and will see how it looks to lower the Brghtness. Thanks a lot I really appreciate it!
