Hey everyone Im looking for suggestions on how to increase the contrast on my renderings.

 They always turn out kinda pastel and greyed out.

Ive attached a few renderings to show you what I mean, in the exterior rendering the stone is supposed to be black and in the interior rendering the floors are supposed to be dark walnut.

As far as I know all the materails HAVE color. In the residential floor plan, its defintaely a neutral pallet but I have assigned materials with color. I attached the shaded view to show the desired contrast as well as a rendered view to show the lack of texture and color in the renderings. None of the wood has a wood grain etc. Also I know Ive seen posts on it before but any suggestions as to why the walls have that pattern on them?

 

This is a screen print of my materials let me know what I should change.

ok thanks I knew there wasnt enough light but the rendering I actually need is a perspective plan so will have no lights actually showing in it, thanks for that input any suggestions of sites that have lighting setting recommendations? It seems none of my renderings get enough light.

 

The back corner of the attached is pitch black even though there are way more lights in the drawing then will be in the real project.

increase the output of your lights, with that exposure level i imagine you are only seeing daylight.

Sorry I dont deal much with lighting, how can I increase the output? When Im rendering it is set to Interior:Sun and Artificial but Ive noticed when its counting daylight portals and interior lights the counts are all incorrect.
