Yes Kirk very well illustrated. Also there are signs of the times in all commercial photgraphy, kind of trends in style.
would be interesting if Yelhsa and Chris Barrett gave their opinions.

The photos of the hotel's interior are very crisp and clean. It has been interesting reading everyone's comments--Kirk's in particular. I never had the patience for architectural photography. It's highly technical and highly challenging to be able to capture an architect's design or a client's intention with finesse. A lot of artistic decision-making is required by the photographer too--lots of variables to juggle. From what I've observed about photographing architecture is that it takes years of experience to really master the craft. By the way, I also have the Nikon 14-24mm lens. It is an awesome lens. I would have to guess it is one of those "must have" lenses for FF 35mm architecture gigs.

@ Antonio... I typically avoid direct shadows in my interiors, they often just add visual clutter and distract from the design.  Once in a while though, they make the shot...  Here's one where I added my own shadow with an HMI through the window...

Superb. ... I'm thinking Bauhaus. I like the way you are taking photography to the edge, to where the medium becomes ambiguous. CGI, painting, serigraphy? Who knows, who cares. The images are provocative.

But compare it to the interiors of Yelhsa (I'm probably remembering his name wrong) who also posts here-who lights with much more drama.

Actually, if you look through the range of Ashley's (Yelhsa) interior photos, you will also see a fair number with soft lighting and faintish, soft shadows also.

I think it all goes down to the place and the design style you have in front, and a bit of personal seasoning.

I think it must be the Siamese twin sister of Thing (from the Addams Family film). It's really quite disturbing.

I heard about this movie, but never actually watched it... Always find myself steering away from the "dark" movies.
I don't perceive this as a threatening image and hence disturbing, I thought of it as playful and a bit funny.
That is, if it is not perceived literally, of course, or I would run from it as fast as I can:)

I unreservedly recommend The Addams Family film. Its darkness is very lightly handled and it's very funny.

I do like your image, by the way: I don't see a contradiction between playful and disturbing.

Indeed Michael's photo is disturbing, very funny, and executed in a light-hearted but technically superb way. It's kind of a gentle self-parody of his beautiful, serious work.

Here's a few from a Mulberry USA (handbag people) store in San Jose.
These are challenging to me for a number of reasons; the mixture of LED, Halogen and Fluorescent lighting, the speed with which I have to work (about a photo every 20 minutes, average) and the fact that they're still working on the store right up to (and after) the public opening. I kept it simple and worked with just a couple of strobes and some cards/black fabric, and focused on trying to keep consistent color and build some directionality to the (flat) lighting in there.
