I got commissioned to shoot a half million dollar PLUS home this weekend. I had a great time, would love to do this for a living! My sister is a Realtor in another town and so I got the job...lucky me!
Take at the Blue Hour....

Hi Linda,I hope you took the opportunity to do a few HDR interior shots,I can still visualize the ones that Caledonian did way back, of a Hotel,& they where very impressive.
I like the warmth the interior lights of this home bring to this scene.

This is a neat night shot. Nice long exposure, letting you use a small aperture for more depth.

Graphicly those black shapes occupies "the given space" nicely, given those perspective from left to right.

Now as a suggestion...I would have pop a few burst of flash, to open up the shadows, nothing intense, I not talking about matching them with the windows light, I'm taking about 2 to 3 stop under your exposure....this will not be powerfull enough to open up the black, but will have some effect on your middle tones only, giving a little more details, but keeping them dark.

Good job Linda

Love the colors! Excellent exposure with great balance of the natural and artificial lights. Great pov and dof with sharp details for an evening shot. Well done, tfs.

hello linda, hope you are well, wonderful beautiful classic colors in this twilight shot, such a cool shot,
thanks scott
