Architectural photography showing day and dusk, nocturnal lighting I was commissioned by a regular client, Pinnegar Hayward Design of Birmingham, to photograph the new building for Omicron in Stafford. A particular requirement was to have both daytime and dusk images of backlit translucent wall claddings (supplied by Rodeca).  

As a strong preference, I like to get some sunlight on as many exterior surfaces as possible. This was complicated here by a morning fog, although it was possible to get the lighting to shine into the fog, which made for a couple of interesting images. Fortunately, the fog cleared just in time to get some oblique shadow on the east elevation.

Some of the groundworks were incomplete, so bare soil had to be digitally greened (if that's allowable in English as we know it?)

For the dusk shots, it was necessary to use multiple exposures and manually combine them in Photoshop, as the light levels on the cladding were very uneven. They look fine to the eye, but the camera sensor, even on the excellent Canon 5DS-R, my workhorse, cannot deal with such a dynamic range in a single exposure.
