Prestonplatt, I can understand you but some folks only now saw this challenge. And don’t forget that:
The challenge is not to put an HDR but to reproduce the lighting as you will see in the references attached. to viewer should have the feeling to view at an architectural book.
And so far we have really good renders, but I have not seen nothing like the reference images. It’s up to jojo1975, but for example I would love to see more work from Chrisis, PurpleRainbow and Hamburger.
Actually, I feel that we could get much more from these challenges. For example, if we share how we get the result, not only that helps a new guy, but also is a help for us. We can get some help to improve the workflow or the way we do the post-production, etc.
Or at least is what I intend to do.
