Smashing Magazine posted a piece by Roland Peelen on their site last week – Post Production Trends in 3D Visualization.
I do agree with him that the post production part of the assembly line is the most underestimated, so go ahead and read what else he had to say here. Roland discusses a few techniques and observations.

Can anybody even remember life before Photoshop/Photopaint or Paintshop pro? I’d rather not try because it’s become an everyday part of work at Burn. Enhancing, resizing… the possibilities!
How often in the archvis industry do your renders need to blend with real-life photos? How often does your raw render just need that extra tweaking? Almost always.
Matte painting seems to become more relevant with every new movie – more inline with the archvis industry though, have a look at this post on myinkblog.com on creating a surreal cityscape using Photoshop. There are also links to the images and brushes he uses.

Juan is one of my favourite 3D artists. He has a fantastic grasp of lighting and composition, and his post work is also really good. Juan was even kind enough to provide a MAKING OF PDF to CGarchitect.com a while back. I’m including it here:

Chromatic Aberration beyond just sounding really cool, can add an extra layer of reality to your images. Strangely, photographers and camera engineers do everything in their power to avoid this imperfection in photographs.
Chromatic Aberration adds a fringe of red, green and/or blue onto the edges of your image. It may also add a slight blur [...]
