This room seemed nice enough to share as well. Also included are the processed 'before' frames used to make it happen. For those who see it as well, yes there is dirt all over the sensor, shown in the 'before' images. Today is cleaning day :smiley:

Result:

Before:

Base flash frame, emulating light coming from window

Corrective flash frame to blend out the light and stand from first frame

Interior ambient frame, used to control direction of light (set to luminosity)

Exterior ambient frame, used in case I missed some reflections in the windows. Also handy for painting a few shadows into areas.

    Lots of work! Nice result!
    I would have never guessed that! Nor do I know how to do all that.

    The half a lamp is bothersome on left edge. Can't be cleaned up now.
    I would have have put it on floor and hide it.

    Also whoever vacuumed the room, they left horrible patterns.

    The landscape portion of the image, what we can see through the window, is not best it can/should be.
    The blend of light for interior is brilliantly handled but whatever is outside has become completely muddled and unnatural.
    Other frames have that wonderful blue tone and natural blending. The composite is some sort of grey which doesn't exist in other frames.
    It has lost sharpness and clarity as well.
    Top half of exterior doesn't match well enough with lower half.

    I would simply borrow the exterior from 3rd frame as is. Just change white balance if needed.
    It is sharp too!

    Cheers JBR!

    Ha, I didn't notice the blurred landscape, thank you! It was some over-brushing on my part...wind & trees...never lines up perfectly.

    I remade the image, cropped out the lamp, can't do anything about the carpet patterns. Vacuums happen, it is what it is I guess.

    The water color has also been corrected to match what it actually looked like that day. We had clouds behind, sun overhead, and weirdness in the sky all around.

    Thanks for showing your processing steps. Most folks do not know what it takes to do Real estate photography.

    Have a great day!
