It doesn't look like you are using the HDR presets, just the HDR output format. 

You need to use the HDR presets here.

Thanks bigstick, lol...yip that was just an output.

here's an update with the interior high hdr preset. with minimum pp in photoshop. Student Res hdr Interior high.jpg

here's also a close up...with a bit of "depth" shown.
with regards to close ups, too eliminate the weird lines on the surfaces. Would a higher pixel ratio setting help?

Excellent work!

You can see why HDR presets are useful now [smile]

What do your u mean by weird lines on the surfaces?

it appears to be the pixels...I've done a second one at a much higher resolution. Here's the results..without any depth of field added.

But the HDR presets are really great...thank you to all of you for always constantly improving Podium.

Those are artifacts caused by image compression. You normally find them in jpg images after post-processing.

One of the ways of compressing images is to use a smaller number of colours. When you save a file, the number of unique colours is optimised. When you change the image by post-processing, you don't have the full range of shades available to the image, so you get the banding to the next nearest colour/shade.

HDR doesn't have that limitation, but file sizes should be larger.

These are all fantastic. I like it that you have the monitor screen lemmed (is that a word).

These are some awesome images!

The iMac is wrong though. I know it’s from the browser but the screen is elevated too much.
