  1. I like a lot of things about this shot. Would love to see it zoomed in quite a bit, though. The counter appears kind of stretched and the tub seems diminished and far away. I don’t think anything would be lost if we only saw a portion of the near sink, and maybe just one or one-and-a-half of the (rather heavy-looking) towels.

  2. I like the way the second shower head is shown in the mirror reflection, but that decision to include it (as Julie said) is making this feel wonky. That wooden stool looks three blocks away. The color of the towels is making the right side too heavy for my eyes. I also see a black shower mat (maybe a scale?) peaking out. The room feels so light, bright and airy but the heavy blacks are weighing things down for me. Also, I think we'd get a better sense of the very cool shape of that chandelier (and hanging pendants) with the lights off. With that awesome skylight, I think letting much of the foreground go slightly darker would really pull the viewer through the room. I like where the photographer was headed with this one. With a few tweaks it would go from good to great.

  3. Yeah, again julie and Michael nailed it... I really like this but something was off for me and besides generally not liking too wide of shots... the main elements were just far enough away including the vanity sinks ... that I kept feeling separated from the subject ... I think tightening up quite a bit and losing a lot of the shower reflection as well as the nearest hanging towel would bring the sinks, and the background of the image. closer and as such bring the viewer deeper into the scene... also consider, most will view this on a small phone screen... the wider the shot and the smaller the main subjects are, the more they just don't read to the viewer ... much more important to show a context of the space but keep in mind that the buyers are going to be more impressed with the treatments in a space than the empty floor space that is generally the real estate photography offering... anyway... very well controlled and executed as far as treatments... but much that was well handled!
