Considering the research on the importance of great photos to a property sale, it is always surprising how many photos misrepresent colors, present gloomy or uneven lighting, and have dark vignettes, smoky-looking ceilings, unnatural shadows, converging verticals and perspective distortion. Not to mention people and animals in the shot, toilet seats open and massive amounts of clutter. And I have even seen photos that would warrant a viewer discretion advisory! There are entire websites dedicated to these bad MLS photos. There are also some very entertaining websites about bad HDR, which adds new problems of low contrast, muddy colors, and an overly-processed look.
