  1. Nicely done. Think I’d prefer to see the camera panned a little to the left, to lose much/all of the empty closet(?) on the right. The towel hanging over the tub threw me off a bit…maybe either remove it or bring back some of its detail, to distinguish it from the tub itself?

  2. Pretty! I didn't even notice the towel on the tub until Julie mentioned it. Lose it. Not necessary. I feel the staging is on the heavy-handed side here. Too much going on. Confused about that strip of light near the foot of the tub. Is that in the floor? Coming from above? The bottom of the shot feels like it's falling off the page and some selective perspective correction could maybe help that. A little flat with the lighting. Even in these bright rooms, don't be afraid to let some dark areas exist. They make the bright areas more impactful. All that said, well done. Solid work.

  3. Again, J & M nailed it... Michael really said something important... don't be afraid of shadows and dark areas!! They make a decent photo great and a great photo amazing... if handled properly... but too often the approach in interior photography particularly in RE photography is still even with the amazing data range of dslrs and mirrorless these days - Lifting shadows ... I like a good deal of this shot... very interesting bathroom subject and well thought out placement of the shower edges and the tub and window frame behind etc... but letting that showers bottom half go deeper, darker, would help to push the eye towards the tub and the center elements of the photo... also, deepening the shadows of the tub would help that floor light actually have some environment to translate as a floor light to the viewer. I actually had to zoom in and look at it for about 30 seconds before I actually saw the light in the tile... I was sure it was a reflection or something... then I saw that towel on the tub and it also took a bit to figure out if it was a towel ... just because the lighting goes flat on it and verges on blowing out... I think maybe folding it thicker could have helped shape it as well as provided more shadow for the bottom of tub and floor light.. Actually that whole bottom of the tub and round ottoman could use their shadowing returning... I can see that the shadows were there... and even see some nice dappled light from another window?... on the floor just behind ottoman... really wish that was left more defined... anyway... you get the idea ... lots to like though and one of those is handling the colors so well... very natural, not sterilized and or out of control...
