From my perspective, those are great renders and show the project in a great light. Nice one.

:rspkt: Very nice.
I think a little "boost" in post processing is often helpful.

Fletch, your enhancements are great also.

Now let me ask a dumb question. Why is it/or is it necessary to do post processing? I see this very often with a lot of different rendering packages. It seems to me that one should be able to make the same type of adjustments in the rendering process.

I do not do very much rendering but have wondered this for a good while.

You can absolutely change the tonal exposure of your rendering from within the render window.
Look up "tone mapping" here in the forum, I've talked about it extensively.

However, if you save the image, and close the render window, you can't tone map the image. Then post processing is necessary.

(Pro users can use the history to recall an image they've rendered within a session of SketchUp and still tone map and save the image.)

If you've ever taken a photo, you know that the exposure of the image is important. The exposure is essentially the control of the camera deciding how light the whites and how dark the blacks are going to be in the image. This is the same as tone mapping - tone mapping is controlling how bright or dark the different pixels will be in your rendering.

If you don't choose the ideal exposure/tone mapping settings during the rendering, you can often recover some of the "pop" as I've done in this example, buy adjusting the image in post-processing.

I did this in seconds using the Topaz Labs plugin for photoshop called "Adjust".
