I like it, the atmosphere and inviting warm cosy lighting makes it look and
feel more real in a way...

However the nr 1 giveaway in kitchen renders is the mandatory wine bottle and glasses..
This I'm really allergic against, in fact I'm having problem seeing a winebottle on a bench in
my own kitchen nowadays.. feels like I'm in a rendering :)

Also if realism is sought after, then a good tip is to go and snap a picture of your own
kitchen right away, and then analyze to see that chairs is not in a perfect line and
all small imperfections (maybe stains etc..) here and there.
Plus probably some stuff lying around that don't belong there :)

Then you get a good realism.. and not a perfected picture rendering that might look
like a decorator done some photos for selling an apartment if you trying hard to look for
realism..
(Maybe i don't need to say how tired I am of all those perfected kitchen renders around the net) ;-)

BTW the image feels quite natural, althought there are some small imperfections here and there.
I suggest you start by raising all the furniture from the floor by an amount of 0.5/1mm (gap due to floor and/or furniture planar imperfections). Also, the oven really lacks a good detailing and seems flat compared to the rest of the room.

Good work overall, for a first rendering!

Good overall quality, but it lacks of good composition. Your viewpoint feels to high. Even if you're 1,8m tall, your camera viewpoint feels more natural when choosing lower height.
for example I'd choose 0,8-1,2m for close-up shots or 1,4-1,6m for wide-angle shots.

Yeah. Also choose the camera angle to keep your verticals vertical, tone down the saturation on some of those wood textures, and make the curtains look a little less solid. This should improve the image significantly.

..I think that the comments by Oscar and Mor4us aim to a "conventional" archviz shot: straight lines, good composition, discreet colours.. These are obviously good, and a real MUST for the "archviz" as we usually intend it but...are they actually ALWAYS correct?

I mean: look at the curtains, look at the style of the objects in general, look at the materials (not the quality of the materials: just the materials he has chosen): the scene here seems to represent an everyday life moment, not a scene from an architectural magazine.

I actually think that some "improvisation" really fits well here.. the too yellow-ish overall tint, the "banal" furniture, the unusual pov.. With some smart postpro (..such as glare, chromatic aberration...) this could easily turn into a shot taken with a low-end camera, with no specific architectural purpose intended.

I actually really enjoy renders like this.

I have to agree Pibuz, (and I know I am an Arch-Viz offender!) it's always nice to see some more natural shots. i remember some fantastic renders on here from years ago by suvakas (of a kitchen) and enricocerica (a concrete house) that are still some of best things I've seen on this site and were by no means conventional Arch-Viz shots
