Trying out the Cycles 2.8.
Using CPU only. GPU not workable.
12 minute render.
Scene from “The_White_Room-Jay-Hardy”.
Floor is crying for a change.
Camera needs adjustment.

Made some fixes. There is some dark shadowing around the window trimming but
nothing is perfect.

Here is a closeup on that dark area.

Could that be AO being a bit too strong? It seems the same black areas are behind the radiator… Also the sofa is a bit dark on the bottom… It looks like something that would happen if the AO is too strong.

cet77,
I’ve been trying to get the shadow side nice and dark and that gives a nice contrast look.
There are many camera scenes with dark areas in the photos on the net.
Here is site with a few examples:

Another try with a floor.
Needs a sun.

Another try.
Using the sun from the HDRI and an area light placed near the windows outside.
I think im getting the hang of this.

I like the last two … their look good imo.

I really want to try an interior scene soon. I’ve got an idea of exactly what I want to make.
