Has anyone achieved photorealistic light with mental ray and maya yet? I can do some decent HDR but have yet to use global illumination that well.

sure I guess.
with FG and GI you just have to play with the settings to get the stuff your looking for.

if your useing hdr files then you should download hdrtxsi.exe to convert to .map files. with these mental ray sees these as hrdi's and alows you to change the exposure the the pic.
