Sepo, I read your suggestion on a rendering contest, and sounds like it could be fun.  I would suggest adding different skill levels, though.  I might also suggest a scenario where the contestants are provided a model of a room or such, completely furnished EXCEPT lights, so contestant would have to create the lighting in Podium and also model the kind of fixtures they think would best light the space.

Here's the attempts with the LEM set at 100%, with and without omni lights in the ceiling fixtures.

And with a LEM set at 50% and omni lights in the fixtures.

I think the last one @ 50% with the omnis looks great! Enough lite so you can see the details but not too washed out. How big is your LEM and how far is it from the scene?

Daniel the last image is nicer IMHO than one originally posted. However the omni above cooker is too strong and would need to be brought down little bit. I hope your render times are better now.

 

David you are 300 now. Does it feel old

The LEM used for general lighting is almost as wide as the room, and about 7' tall, and located 13' from the scene.  That places it just behind the camera.

 

I like the general lighting on the last post as well.  I'm still not satisfied with the ceiling fixture above the sink.  The omni light is too bright, and one can't make out the glass shade.  Since part of the remodel is replacing these, I think that is important.  I'm generating another rendering with an omni light set at 1.  Hopefully I will find a reasonable balance soon.

 

I haven't really addressed the light over the cooker yet - have been concentrating on the other lights.  But I agree it's too bright.

 

Rendering times are considerable shorter - less than a day.  For these tests, I'm generating smaller images with lower quality settings.  I'm going to assume that the final rendering will take as long as the first.

Two more attempts.  The Second one the LEM (for general lighting) is set at 50% and the omni over teh range is set at 1 - it's still too bright.

 

The first image the LEM is set at 40%.  Overall it's kinda dark, but the omni over teh range (set at 1) works better.  There is a hot spot on the ceiling, but the area is better lit.

 

I think one more try with the LEM set at 45% might do it.

 

Any comments?

Daniel you can reduce the power of omni by having gray instead of white or simply have a LED under the top unit. You need to experiment though.

I think I've got the light under the hood correct now.  It now looks like the real thing.  Part of the problem was a reflective surface underneath it.  My next step is to correct the polished brass on the light fixtures (reflection set to high) and there should be some reflection on the refrigerator.
