How to wow.
Be evocative; bring to mind an emotion, a place, or a mood.
Example: In this photo Lis0 creates a wonderful feeling of isolation through industrial design.
Be surprising; insert an item that is out of place, make your picture a different shape, or use a color in an unexpected way.
Example: In this kitchen scene east108th surprises with bold colors and artwork.
Be realistic; try to make the viewer have to look very closely to tell if the photo is in game or not.
Example: Here Marandile creates a room that makes you look close to discover it is The Sims.
Be unusual; photograph something that nobody would ever photograph, from an angle that is strange, or with the wrong lighting.
Example: The use of color and especially texture and materials in m0xxa's picture is indeed unusual in a kitchen.
Be breathtaking; Overwhelming beauty always wows.
Example: In this bedroom angrycat has used a combination of realism and unusual elements to create a truly breathtaking effect.
If you have ever looked at a sims photo and thought "how did they do that?" or "is that a real picture?" or "that is so beautiful." you have been wowed.
