Hi all. It's my first post to this section of the forum.

I'm rendering a loft extension. It'll be a set of four images, two interior views, one exterior and one diagrammatic view. I post two interior views here. A day view and a night view. It's so difficult to adjust colours depending on lighting condition I had to go for monochrome images, possibly because of the lack of my skills on Thea Render and PS...

Any comment for improvement will be appreciated. :think:

The monochrome looks good.
I think turning the lights on in the first image would add something to it, and tweaking them in Camera Raw may help brighten & increase the contrast.

Hi JGA. Thank you for your comment.
I've never used Camera Raw, but this seems like a good way of adjusting tone. I turned the light on for the first image as below, but realised the downlights to the low ceiling area of the loft is not a good idea, so revised the lighting scheme and the ceiling finish. I think the day scene is still slightly plain. The field of view might be too wide? Does anyone know how to get the exact field-of-view angle in relation to Thea's camera :?:

Hi.
Further to OSKAR.MESZAR's "THEA illustration" post in the Showcase section, I've experimented with the 0% optix denoiser technique as below. Compared to my previous monochrome images, which was a result of hours of rendering and then heavily photoshopped, this is about 10 seconds of rendering with very minimal photoshopping (so higher Thea Render ratio) adding lines from Sketchup and a backdrop (of Van Gogh). Time spent is fractional. The first one looks like oil while the second one is more like watercolour:wtf:
