I've definitely stayed busy this winter. Not as busy as summer, but, plenty to post. (Many exteriors which I'll be reshooting because of snow, though)

And I know many in here are much busier than I (yes, jealous)

First time posting in this thread.

This was a difficult home to shoot because of the various temps I was dealing with. Tried to dial down the blues through the curtains from outside, the flash I used to light the kitchen (which I realized is bleeding onto the ceiling a bit outside the kitchen), the warm incandescent lighting from the ceiling fixtures, and the shiny floors. Green cast coming into the kitchen which I had to dial down a lot and still didn't really get rid of.

EXIF should show, but in case it doesn't:
Canon EOS M5
Rokinon 12mm f/2 @ F/8
ISO 320
1/3 Shutter Speed
Lit w/Godox speedlites
CPL filter applies to cut glare from floor

Any tips?

The main issue for me is that you have not balanced the exposure very well. The windows are blown, while areas of the interior are under exposed.

The two main options are...
1. Multiple exposures blended together in LR/Enfuse/WhateverHDR
2. Use flash/strobes to light the interior to balance with the exterior/windows.

You mentioned that you were using flash but it doesn't look as if you used enough to actually get to the point of balancing the interior with the windows. With a space like this it might be better to break it into chunks. Set up the camera and then focus on lighting the kitchen. Then do the dining area and then composite the two together.

^^ Also looks very soft, cold, with a weird color balance. Not very inviting. Verticals and composition look good though.

This thread used to be popping!

You're right about that. I have some that I completed for my clients but not sure if they're worth sharing.

You're right, the right side I couldn't get exposed well. Tried bouncing flash from the other side of the room but all I had were speedlites, and it wasn't enough. Bouncing off the ceiling wasn't possible due to the inset lofted ceilings. I should have done a multi exposure to get the windows less blown but I was being lazy/being rushed by the clients on site on a fairly large house - tried to get everything in either a single flash exposure or an HDR bracketed shot.

Yea the color balance was annoying to fuss with. Any tips? I didn't have gels for my flash to match the ambient inside, which differed largely from the light coming in through the windows. I tried to selectively change the color temps for each section (kitchen, windows, etc). Thanks for the compliment on the composition/verticals! I find that's the easiest as long as the camera is parallel to the ground and level.

I think I have felt the same way, I need to have a look through and see what I shot, maybe we keep this thread going by sharing our not so favorite stuff too and why we didnt like it. Sounds weird, but I think we could all learn that way. I have always found this thread to be informative and everyone is super chill with criticism here unlike other threads in this forum.

Tower Life Building in San Antonio

Yep I know about the trash can on the left and the signal light is probably a bit distracting but I didn't want to crop in too much and lose context for the Tower Life building.

Make no apologies for that image. Very nice! Never mind the trash can. It's part of the ambiance. And I like that you caught the light at yellow. It adds a bit of uncertainty to an otherwise placid image. I like it.

I appreciate your comments. Thank you! The client loved it too.
