Perhaps it was overprocessed, but the HDR effect in it was minimal. Here is a single exposure of the room with no HDR effects (or tone mapping). As you can see the main difference is the dearth of exterior details, which were brought back a bit with a second exposure in the first image. The fire looks a bit better in this one, but very similar. The shadows are also slightly darker, but I could have brought those up to match the first. I'm not necessarily disagreeing that the image was overprocessed, just showing that it doesn't seem (to me) to really be an effect of the HDR used to bring back some outside details. If you disagree, please help me to see what I'm missing. I'm still very new and learn a lot from everyone's comments.

Part of what triggers the negative "HDR Look" reaction, is that this photo is way over sharpened. Normal photos are not that sharp/crispy/grainy. A comparison to the original photo without any sharpening/clarity would be very revealing. I also thought that sharper photos would be better, but quickly learned that none of my real estate agent clients liked them.

Thanks for all the great feedback.

As far as the composition is concerned, there was a chair facing that direction and I wanted to have the feel that you were sitting in the chair. I probably ended up cropping it a bit too tightly for that. See below for an overview of the space and the original uncropped photo.

First shot is much better than the rest so far. You just need to do a bit of distortion correction and adjusting since you have some slight converging lines.

The second photo may be unfixable. With that one point composition again you need to be straight on and level. The horizontal is crooked and the camera angle down causes hefty converging lines. Use the live view balance overlay on your camera and align the verticals for perfect composition next time!

Once again, thanks for the feedback.

For real estate shots, my clients want a consistent and real view from all rooms. I shoot all rooms at chest height perfectly level using a bubble level. There is no need to try unique perspectives per room unless you are doing architectural work or your client is an interior designer. From these photos, the first photo gives an excellent view of the room clearly showing size, windows, floors, ceiling, and lighting. For living rooms, I also add a long shot of the room centered on the fireplace or center feature, and a detail shot of the fireplace.

Very nice. Probably the best shot I've seen you post yet.

Kitchen from a house I did yesterday. The house belongs to the owner of one of the custom home companies I've been shooting for the last 2 years. I think this is my favorite kitchen shot I've done so far (or at least a top 3).

Vacation home. Very basic twilight because I had to try to fit 2 twilight photos (houses next to each other) into one night.

I do that from time-to-time. Two cameras, two tripods, two external battery power extenders for the cameras, two wireless triggers, and make sure the cameras are either both visible at the same time or otherwise secure from passing curiosity. :-D

^the sky replacement is a bit too obvious for me in both of those. The halo around the leaves gets distracting. The second is a very nice comp and the house portion of it is well done, great leading line down the the carriage house/garage. It shows the property well.
