Architectural Photography Post-Production

I would like to share some examples on how we do a post-processing for architectural photography. Below you’ll see before and after images with explanation what we did and how. Sometime the result looks like HDR, but it is not a real HDR, where HDR processor compiles several images into one. The results often looks not real, showing non-existent lighting and colors. Which is OK for the Art, but unacceptable for a commercail photography.
The best way is a manual process, where we replace some parts of the image, using masking or working with dodge or burn tools. More examples of such techniques you can find in our Portfolio
