Hi got Maxwell render suite and loving it. I am a beginner so please help:

External render of my house on sunny day with nice hdri blue sky background

I like the sharp shadows you get with the physical sky but i need to use a hdri image based background which doesnt give the sharp edge cast shadows
Can anyone suggest how to use HDRI image based background and still get the sharp cast shadows?

Many thanks
