Here is my first go at doing night rendering. I liked the darker version, but the company thought we need to see more of the homes roof. Let me know what you all think. Be gentle!
I remember year ago I wrote about this house . it was Xmas and some thing about smoke)))
To create this render more realistic you need background .
now it looks like photo of model.
and of course you need light in the windows
Different home. Different rendering. That one was day light. I did use the same Christmas decoration that I create last year. I hadn't ever tried doing night lighting, just daylight. I think this is the one your thinking of.
