I don't really make many outside renderings, so this is one of few.
And after seeing so many amazing interior renderings , I feel slightly reluctant to post these image. 'cause I feel im "behind" compared to what my interiors look like.

But..there is no better way to learn than putting your images out here, and absorbing the usefull responses. So lets hear, what is good, bad, or ugly ? 2018-06-12 SNDHK3a.jpg  2018-06-12 SNDHK11.jpg

These aren't bad renders by any means! They don't look as if they are supposed to be real because of the silhouette people.

If you want more realism, the most important thing with these is to get the camera angle right. These are drone cam views 😉

Imagine you are photographing the building as completed. Would you go to the trouble of getting a drone for photographs? Not unless someone asked you for these. Even if you had your own drone, would you think that you had to use it for still images?

There's something not quite right with the lighting. You have added fill lighting in the lobby. That's not working, it doesn't look good.

You have added a background sky but it looks like you have rendered with a white SketchUp background. That's not a good way to approach it.

Use the Physical sky, and then if you want a background (which isn't actually adding much to your image) choose one whose colour is close to the actual physical sky. The sky colour generates the overall colour and light intensity for the render. This doesn't match at all in your images. You may need to use the vegetation preset with your hedges. That's available to download here somewhere, but I forget where.

The basics of your model are all good! It won't take much to improve it a lot 😉

Thanks Bigstick,

I will take your advice, for lighting at least. I did however use physical sky, but with a clouddome.
The perspective was chosen on purpose, and like drone images yes. I do get your point though, eye level would be more "realistic".
I'll do some tests with your advice.
