Residential Dusk Photos (again!)

I believe this is the 3rd post out of 4 to cover this subject so I'll be brief. Here are 3 dusk external images of a beautiful West Coast Modern Home by Wallmark Homes that were taken on the same evening.

I see a lot of dusk photography that is taken much too late in the evening and literally all you see is blown out artificial light in a sea of pretty much black. I think dusk shoots should be about finding that time where the artificial and ambient lighting is balanced. This way you retain the detail in the finishings (in this case the stone and wood work) but also have the impact of the lighting design.

In these 3 examples the first is just slightly on the early side, the middle is spot on perfect timing and the third is slightly on the late side. I normally are rushing to get 2 images (as you can see in previous posts a lot goes into each image) but in this case I managed to squeeze in three.
