I am getting so frustrated with the lighting in Revit. Is it me or is it extremely complicated/annoying/nearly impossible to create a nice nighttime rendering and get the ligthing correct.  When i do and rendering and set it on exterior: sun and artificial and change the time for example to 5:00 or 6:00pm the lights dont really show but if i change the settting to exterior: artificial only the lights are great but then the scene is to dark????? So frustrated but still smiling. :-)

looks really good render, maybe reduce the watts of the spots as you say, and add something to the entrance.

I see that you really have to play with the exposure settings to get it right.  I usually just leave that stuff default thinking that is already the best setting.
