When I compare these six methods (wall behind camera removed), all rendered 20 minutes (lighting setup in window title bar), constant dome plus sun comes out best in terms of three-dimensionality of scene elements, while HDRI plus emitter (plane outside windows, no glass/AGS) has the least noise. Also the physical sun looks better than the HDRI sun. What is best practice nowadays?

there are so many great denoisers out there that you should not worry about noise.
