I will be very happy if some of you could give advices how I can improve my renderings.
Here an example:

The looking of the sky is ok for me, but the rest looks a bit too dark.

If I go down with the EV-Value the sky will be too bright (and the rest will be better).

so for the moment I didn't find the right balance in the settings :(
You could try controlling the illumination intensity separate from that of the background, by explicitly assigning the HDRI image to the IBL > Illumination channel. This would allow you to balance between the camera EV, the overall illumination, and the background.
hardware question :)
