nr_ps_stack_717.jpg

Photoshop stack. First, we added specular layer (screen, 50%), then we added refraction layers with blur (so we have now nice glow in the window area). Sun and Light select layers make lighting more prominent. Color balance 1 makes the image colder, hue / saturation layer desaturates it a bit and curves ("s" shape) bring more contrast to this image.
 

This exterior scene was made by Ireneusz Jaworski from Evermotion. It was set in 3ds Max and rendered in V-Ray.
