Room With a View

This is an entry in The ActiveRain 2017 Photography Contest for the category "Real Estate - Interior".

This was a very challenging room to photograph. If you use flash, all you see in the windows is flash. If you try to expose for the interior without flash, the windows look like mirrors and you can't see outside. If you expose for outside, the interior looks dark. This image is a combination of 14 exposures. 7 taken with the interior lights on and 7 taken with all the lights inside turned off, then blended together.

That is amazing. I do not think most people could guess how much work goes into great real estate photography. Thank you for sharing!

That is incredible.  Who knew it would take so much work to get this one to photograph correctly.  It was worth the trouble for sure.

Gorgeous shot, Damon! I took one that I titled "A Room with a View" years ago and that photo has been requested by many and stolen by many as well! :-)
