Personal Preference

Neither of these images are, in my opinion, really that good. I like one more than the other tho.

My question is: which one do you like more, for whatever reason, and I understand that you may not like either of them very much, for what ever reason, but do you prefer the look of one over the other?

mike,

the 2nd .. texturing and lighting are much better. Still a little flat looking though, you need to get a bit more dynamic range into the image. It looks like everything is being lit by ambient only with no direct light sources such as lights or sun - these will help add some contrast and liven things up a bit.

Are these both done in AC? Could be wrong but the second one seems like a different render engine .. i am not that familiar with AC rendering as anything other than shaded/hidden line images gets done in external apps
cheers,

Owen Sharp

I'd like to see a mixture of the two pictures!

The first artificially made "alive" by light cones, shine around light fixtures and too much reflections. I can't understad if this is a daytime or night render - the amount of light from windows and lights is the same!

The second image is just the opposite - absolutely flat! No reflections, no shadows.

Have a look at this - AC10 LW by tgr:

HI Mike
By far the second.
Actually as I look at it as a photograph, it does have shadow and highlight detail along with mid tones.
The dynamic range is there.
What is missing is excessive specular highlights which are IMHO overdone in the first and I don't miss them for a personal reason. I would much,much more prefer to spend time in the second with it's more relaxing atmosphere.
But others like drama I guess.
As a comment to outside light looking the same, which it doesn't in my opinion, it is what I try to achieve in my indoor real photographs,(not an easy thing to do) to bring the light levels to within film range.
Nice work, which I could do that good.

A simple Photoshop correction - brightnes/contrast and colour balance. This doesn't compensate for lack of direct light from windows and shadows.

YEAH!! Kliment I like your improvements

I am planning on doing it again with some direct sunlight into the room. Now where is that spare 5 minutes I left lying around here?
