This is a little part of the sheik zayed mosque I visited few month ago. This is my first architectural rendering with corona.

Good, but need more pass for decrease the noise.
Corona - the best rendering solution!

Nice, but it has some problem, it seems to be a little model of the build, maybe try to change the perspective, and work on more light contrast all around.

Sorry, this morning I've got a very bad and boring critical sense...!!! :| Hope you find this comments useful and not unfriendly!
All the best!

Polymax, I totally agree with you but for me 1 hour of rendering si long already...

Alessandro, no problem for the critics, thank you for that. I think I may look like a model because of the DOF which is a little exagerated : F-Stop at 2 :0
This is based on a picture I took there and I tried to reach the same light feeling. What do you mean/recommend by light contrast?

xt13r, thanks! This is a wonderful place, isn't it? :D

Thanks all :)

The linked photo seems to be an hdri photo, I don't like this kind of photo, I find it absolutely unnatural. But, the camera is much more near to the floor than in the render, try this perpective to improve the view quality!

Edit: I'm reading right now your answer. Well, it shoud be pretty to see your reference photo to have a match ;) About light contrast, I mean it seem to have too much light everywhere, like the hdri photo linked by xt13r, my opinion is that there must be more shadowed areas, and darkness shadow, it is not possible (of course not natural) to have the same light everywhere. An example, so far from this scene, if I take a picture inside a room with a window with a splendid sun outside, or you take the exposure inside the room (and you will have about white on the window) or you take the exposure into the window (and you will have a very dark room). All the rest is unnatural, artificial and should be good for a forniture catalog, but I find it not good for an exterior picture. As I've said, it's just my humble opinion, of course! ;)

This is the reference picture. Everything is white and reflective. That's why you said that there's not enough contrast in the scene I think. But it is hard to do something else that looks like the photo.

Hello  Ephaistophedes


The tone of Ambient Light, and then it's perfect!

The photo has a warm tone color "gold / brown", the 3D has a blue tint.

Sorry, today is a strange day for me, so to have a break I decided to work a little on your image, without any other mean than have some relax for me.
I've done a little post, this is the result, I agree about color temperature. Matching your image and the picture you can also see a big difference in columns size, yours are larger, so seems to be taller than in the picture, and this make all the place smaller than it is. I think that a little mask with AO could help this image to became better again, and have a look at gold colour of the palms, in the picture it a lot more soft than your. The floor bump is exagerate, too large, this also make the place to seem smaller.
Again, I really don't want to teach anything to anyone, this is only for me, to learn,  I just like to share with you! Fell free to tell me to do something else in my relax time ;)

Best regards,
Alessandro
